Assistant Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Manchester – 20 September 2015
As a PMA for 8 months - I was eager to delve into the role n company but within a week - it was clear to see that managers n scheme deliverers haven't got any commercial acumen. It's sad that a recognised organisation with potential fail to acknowledge the people from the top through to mid level have no direction.
Building Surveyor (Current Employee) – Manchester, ENG – 26 April 2014
Excellent starting salary and benefits but then career stagnation. 'Reorganisations' happen on a yearly basis and staff frequently end up 'displaced' then redundant. A good place to work as a contractor (good rates of pay), but not as a permanent member of staff. There is a final salary pension scheme, but only if you last there for 5 years or more.
28 days annual leave, pension
Ovetime is expected and is unpaid. Lots of office politics.
