• Carillion’s publicity machine: All show and no substance.
• Carillion’s values live with the senior directors only and a handful of people whose job it is to make you feel the call centre is all fun and games-it ain’t. Outside of that circle the company is like any other-full of bad managers who continue to bully and threaten on a daily bases
• Carillion’s environmental policy stinks. If the truth be known (come on you engineering people, spill the beans, you know what I’m talking about) best practice (as long as it doesn’t cost)
• Carillion want to retain good people: shore they do, but the good people want to work for a responsible, trustworthy, reliable, good payer. Sorry Carillion that’s not you.
• Carillion great debate is a good idea-you listen to peoples complaints-then Carillion focuses the management to intimidate the very people dishing the dirt until they leave or are sacked.
• Carillion intranet forum: limited in use to those who are afraid to speak their mind, for retribution is only around the corner, You dare not criticise for the wrath of John Davies (moderator) will delete you and banish you from the forum. (see Carillion values)
• Carillion family values. Forget it. If you’re not putting in at least a 75 hour week you’ll be out in a month.
• Carillion pay. Says who
This might all sound like sour grapes. Well join the gang, and we’ll await your report in 6 months.
My friend, you are are very honest person.
I work for a carillion unit on the south coast and have done for 3 and a half years, I have applied 3 times for promotion within my contract base and have been turned down every time for someone that my ops' manager has known for many years from previous contracts. I have also applied for higher training several times and, guess what, have been turned down at every opportunity.
recently we have had a new site supervisor appointed, a position which I applied for and was turned down for because i apparently don't have "adequate qualifications". I know for a fact that i am the higest qualified engineer that works for Carillion at my base site, even my ops manager. The guy who was given the job is a pipe fitter with no qualifications except expired gas certificates, he has however worked with my ops' manager for 15+ years so if you put 2 and 2 together you come up with a kick in the <removed>.
As for as their values go, they have at best very little and at worst none whatsoever.
Despite the fact that I was passed over for promotion yet again, I am still expected to write specifications and vet ALL staff within my discipline who work on our site.
It honestly could not be put better "if your face don't fit, forget it".
