    Pros

    Willing to employ recent graduates

    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...

    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.

      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.
