A hard question to answer as this changed dramatically over the years. Usually very busy, which I enjoyed. They were very relaxed about tea breaks etc, but given the job I did, I had to work to strict deadlines.
Pros
Private health cover, SAYE schemes etc
Cons
Could be long hours

Work can be hectic and also slow, once you get use to the software. Most people are very friendly some keep themselves to themselves that's usual in most places. They use headphones but do have the occasions where they interact. Some work is monotonous.

Nice people, nice working environment. Management heavy, inconsistent instruction. Generally a good company, although going through a lot of changes at present, with new management at the top, and it will not remain the same company.
Pros
good salary
Cons
indecisive

A very nice company to work for. but if you are less busy, they want you to do something else that's not related to your trade. like cleaning and all that, and if you refuse. You are gone. I was in one of their project in New cross. I have a long contract and enjoyed everyday.
Pros
Calm. easy day
Cons
None

I have only been working at Crest for a few weeks but they have been so welcoming and friendly. I work within the customer services team and the 5 girls on the team are amazing. So helpful and understanding.
I think this is a great company and if any permanent jobs come up with them I will be applying.


I would highly recommend Crest
Pros
Lovely office, free parking

Good company to work for look after the staff. Depending on what trade you do it can be very repetitive like first fixing and second fixing so best to mix it up what you do

day to day working with site operatives in building plots with site agents delegating work to the work force, hardest part is balancing learning with productivity but achievement makes it satisfying.
