Good planing at work
Good experience coordinating trades teams

Poor management from the top down

Workplace culture not encouraging, dosn`t alow people to develop themselves

Hardest part of the job working without minimum of necessary information, lack of transparency, lack of technology culture, everything on paper, no access to a printer or a copy machine, no wifi.

Enjoying working with the customers

Company doesn`t value any freelance managers, only cards in people are in a good position.

They request my agency to take me cards in, being a freelance for them and after 2 months they end the contract without any notice or any resonable explanation.
Pros
Good for a start experience
Cons
Bad experience as freelance manager

Trying to get better run sites to hand over extra plots to get quantities to year end targets.
To achieve a quality product safely you need time and quality tradesman.

Very much a gung-ho company. They care far too much about profit than producing acceptable houses that clients are proud to buy and live in.
The Site Build Programme is geared to produce too much for Contractors to realistically cope with, they are streched to their limit as a result of this they fail to meet targets or their quality of work isn't acceptable most of the time.

If you try to explain your concerns to higher management it falls on deaf ears.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Too much stress if you have good personal standards

too much admin/paperwork - many different forms to complete with same info to many departments - should be electronic/web form style to make time for actually managing the site and doing what paid for - to build houses.

management of labour, plant and materials and keeping good diary, inspection sheets and records. Learning NHBC requirements to achieve zero defects, having a good work force is essential. Hardest part of job has to be trying to rectify defects left uncompleted by previous management, however once rectified and defects minimized good relationships can be built at all levels
Pros
enjoyable challenges
Cons
rectifying others mistakes
