Not for profit research business with a pay cap and dwindling funding as its replaced by a new site in France. Trying to turn into a profit making business and diversify the site into a science park. Overall its a pleasant work environment with a good variety of skills and nationalities, never time to get bored. They do support professional registration well. Excellent workshops. The management? Varies from section to section. Project planners wanted parts bought before designs were completed. Nobody knows how the funding works. Political creatures. Some managers understood engineering, others could not turn down an air con system and abused the complaint system. Hardest part of the job - completing your tasks with other interfaces/people deliberately obstructing you, trying to complete theirs first. OR someone else trying to hijack the task and add it to their overtime - or stealing your resources. Empire builders kidnapping plant. Planners then telling you to follow their diagrams of fantasy. High staff turn over/illness. Suicide, dementia, obesity etc Most enjoyable part of the job - when the scientists got what they wanted from the plant and the complaining stopped for a while- ironically leading to no overtime and staff cuts. If you like variety and laugh at stupidity but don't criticise anything or care about deliverables (they will always be late) it's a fine life at CCFE. It is actually a very difficult workplace, improved by a superior SAP implementation and constant staff review processes. My JET boss was great. The objectives were "make it work" - more...
