    May 20, 2020Head of People

    Hello and thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I wanted to check that you've placed your review on the correct company as I noticed that you were based in Crewe and your job title doesn't fit the roles that we have as a technology business. We are based in the North East of England. I wanted to ensure that you posted this good review on your own company Glassdoor. Many thanks

    I worked at Leighton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of positives when I worked at Leighton, but some of them do depend on where you are based. (Rainton HQ, Newcastle or London) Free tea, coffee and fruit. Good office atmosphere. Music, console games, pool table, darts board, golf and others for chill out times. Great colleagues to work with and some fantastic customers such as British Airways, Ikea, Great Run and more. Flexible Working, working from home and wear what you like any day of the week not just Friday's like some places. You will also get the chance to work on some interesting and large projects.

    Cons

    Leighton still have a way to go to improve staff stability and sustainability but it is improving. Sometimes workload for certain staff members is not managed well enough hence the first point. Still heavily reliant upon British Airways.
