Good job but negative environment
Multi Trader (Former Employee) – Poole, Dorset – 3 March 2019
Worked there for around a year and initially was ok but unfortunately due to over management from supervisor upwards it isn't long before the dramas start .
You are sold the idea it's about helping people from upper management but the reality is it is about the money even to the point your safety can be compromised due to sending you to jobs on your own which they know should be VIPs because of tenant issues.
Fundamentally sovereign is restructuring because it is top heavy and for the average trade who deals with a supervisor who is manouvering position to make themselves look good ,it can be very wearing.
The actual work itself is easy but even that can start to become complex due to the 45 minute rule the company has each side of the day .So basically if you don't get on with your planner or your supervisor feels slightly raggy then it ends up a game of cat and mouse and nothing gets done.
I personally found the guys on the ground good guys but I'd say 90 percent had negative thoughts especially towards upper management and supervisors who at times were not even tradepeople themselves were looked on with contempt.
Basically sovereign needs to cut the dead wood out from supervisors upwards they are obviously underworked due to the amount of dramas that are created from supervisors upwards .
So if you can handle the games and your face fits it is a good job ,if not keep away .
Self important management who are removed from reality
