    I worked at Faithful + Gould full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working Satisfaction in handing in your notice.

    Cons

    Projects are boring and relatively small Staff are brainwashed and cannot see that they are miles behind so called competitors- these competitors are much superior in every discipline and win proper projects in London and surrounding areas. PM staff don’t actually understand how the construction industry operates. Framework orientated consultancy and struggle to bring in new clients/projects. Evident gossiping... (about other staff) at high level which does not set a good impression on younger members of staff. Career will easily drift with no structure. Junior/graduate staff members are brought into projects just to write minutes yet know nothing about construction- don’t bother going to university, just take up an administrator role.

    Advice to Management

    Too far gone- major revamp in management required. Many members of staff have been there too long and are too set in their own ways. Wake up and smell the coffee- the ‘F&G’ way is definitely not the correct way and learn from other construction consultancies as the gap in service is miles apart.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Faithful + Gould full-time

    Pros

    Good team (for the most part), extremely social, market rate salary and some flexibility with ways of working.

    Cons

    Systems and procedures heavy, too much focus on completing time sheets and not enough on the end product. Elements of middle management in a certain team need careful review.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on doing the job for the right price instead of going in cheap and doing a bad job. With so much emphasis on utilisation, there still seems to be an issue with employees without enough to do and this creates stress when it comes to completing time sheets.
