Great place to work
Good company to work for. Very friendly directors and is a fast pace construction company. They have a great intranet system and work life balance is very important to them.

Working for GT is like any other large companies with all the usual problems and issues. On most day it is a nice place to work but there are days when you wish you had won the lottery.

Overworked, underpaid. Senior management make poor decisions and you tidy up after them.
They talk a great deal about mental health and health and safety, yet the truth is the opposite.

A good company to work for.
A very friendly and relaxed working atmosphere. An open door policy at all levels. The senior management always took time to address any issues and were not afraid to be told if they were wrong or there was a better and safer way to address an issue or problem.

If your face doesnt fit youre out
Unstructured interview.
HQ culture of gossip and look down on every other department.

Some unsupportive and judgemental management team members.

Repetitive work which was unstructured. Not allowed to use initiative must stick to the unwritten plan - which in the end depended upon the mood of the manager.

Productive work force
The management down to the guys on the ground were a pleasure to work with. At Galliford Try they have an excellent workplace health and safety policy which ensures all of the work force is kept safe at all times. I learnt a great deal whilst working with a number of the management staff.

Fleet administrator
I worked here briefly via an agency, the job was varied and the small office environment was good and relaxed. The job it’s self was great and the only downfall was the wage 16k a year, which lead me to leave for a higher wage elsewhere.

Evelina Childrens Hospital
Ran by idiots that are too lazy to administer the project.

They farm out to freelance managers anything that is too difficult for them.


Very small skillset within directly employed staff.

promises certain things but can't deliver
terrible place to work, the management are only out for themselves, they tell you that there's room for progression and to be able to get other qualifications but it's all lies. I wasted 2 years of my life working for them after being promised a course after a certain period of time working for them. eventually they made be redundant about 1 week before my 2 years there just so they didn't have to pay me a redundancy wage.

Very glad i'm not there any more and feel sorry for people who want to work there.


Also don't be surprised if they randomly let you go, I heard stories that if something goes wrong with a project then the project manager never takes the blame and they will pass the blame onto someone else resulting in them having to be fired.

Bullying and Unsympathetic
Was so genuinely happy to get my role at GT They promote wellbeing, good work life balance, good support, that is until you need it. Bullied, treated differently and no support.
Never worked anywhere that contradicts everything they promote.

Don’t work there!

Brilliant stepping stone
This was a great experience as the management trusted in my capability and offered me to work as Project QS on multi million pound projects.

They showed full support and provide me with assistance where required.

Business unit not following company values
The business unit is working with no real leadership and communication to the team delivery the daily work load. Overall values are not followed at the local unit level causing stress in the workplace. Also uncertainty in the roles of some of the current local management with no real direction being given.

Corruption and bullying
Galliford Try is the worst company I have ever had the misfortune to work for. Bullying is rife, the level of corruption is staggering and if you were to dare to tell anyone you life would be made miserable until you resign. If you like working in a toxic environment where the management are more interested in screwing people over than getting on with their job, then this is the company for you.

keeps you honest every morning
typical house builder, the same problems arise when working to a tight build program, support network could be much better as well as the pre-planning of projects
