I liked working here, friendly people and good flexibility. Could do with more free parking but there is plenty of local paid parking within a 10 minute walk. Shame Covid came along to spoil it.

partly lost my job due to covid 19 and the manager of the contractor, carbon 60 was not interested in placing me on the furlough system, so I have been left with no job and claiming universal credit. Will never work for this shower of sh--e again.

I start working 2 weeks ago, I should get paid every week but I did not.
The first week they told me that I've gaved the wrong card details ( account number and sort code ) and I have to wait till the next friday(pay day)

The second week they paid me 153£ for 22 h . 153£÷22h = 6.95£/h when I should have 9.33/h .

And now they told me to wait until monday for the rest of the money (33h)

Working with other people and showing new employees what to do when they started working there. Cleaning all areas including offices, kitchen areas and toilets. All staff members were good to work with.

Offered a job at Airbus through Carbon 60. Had at least 3 Monday start dates that were always cancelled Sunday evening.
Tons of emails offering various explanations. Do not pay upfront for a DBS check or Post office documentation verification.

Basically all a bit of a con do not trust these people with your details or career.

I have experienced poor "management" multiple times. Managers make you feel like your opinions don't count and any concerns raised by members of staff are ignored. The attitude of the management team is "get on with it, if you don't like it just leave" due to this many members of staff have been in tears as they are under extreme pressure due to the workloads with no compassion or solutions by management.

Pay is extremely poor in relation to the responsibility and the workload with hardly any progression opportunities.


The company needs to have a look at the true happiness of their staff instead of just focusing on profits and future deals.
Pros
Conference
Cons
Awful management by all.

Was told had work was for 8 weeks + left another job for for it as was closer to home, job ended up being for a week, agent was very dismissive and rude when I called, polar opposite to when I initially called and went and interviewed. Lied about why the job had ended. I know this as I was told the whole truth from the emoloyer.

They pay less than other agencies for the same job.


Feel less than just a number after this experience
Pros
Lie to your face and tell you what you want to hear
Cons
Salary / job security / terrible company name

The culture in the office is very positive and supportive. I know my targets, i operate in a specific sector, i have regular 1-1's with my manager and we have regular team meetings where we discuss our performance and the company performance.

There is currently no specific CRM, but we have been told that this will be rolled out before the middle of the year.


I love the fact that we have a casual dress policy in the office. It certainly beats having to be suited and booted every day.


Carbon60 are working hard to make the business a great place to work.
Pros
Location and team
Cons
Lack of technology

There is a huge turnover of staff due to little support to the lower management and no real direction for the company. Very little appreciation for hard work/long hours. The company have no KPI's policy(??) and there is not any real structure for individual development. Not even a proper process for supporting failing staff! The company have great plans and blow the trumpet on new incentives then it all just fades away.....

Nice location and offices and a decent annual conference.

Sadly you are a number.
A lot of the management are serial "returners" which says a lot. Many of the good folks have gone to competitors (and stayed away from C60)

Progression is only possible if you have little opinion and agree in the required places.

Training is misguided and condescending in the way it is presented.

THERE IS LIFE OUTSIDE OF C60! There really are better recruitment companies out there. Pick ANYother
Pros
Nice offices
Cons
Lack of listening and understanding, Middle management believe they are greater beings than 'ordinary' staff.
