Very interesting work. Always facing new challenges.Not all the work is exciting and challenging, there is still some tedious administration work that has to be done to keep projects organised and on track.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Being able to work in an industry that is the same field as my degree. A good working environment in terms of the people (colleagues/management etc.) and in terms of how it is helping to shape me as an individual thus aiding my future career.The hours and travelling is a 'shock' to the system as such.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
1) The opportunity to further my practical knowledge by working alongside experienced electricians on site, whilst improving my theoretical knowledge of the industry by studying towards my HNC. 2) The opportunity to represent Balfour Beatty outside of work by delivering seminars to school leavers to educate them on what a job within the construction industry entails. 3) The opportunity to develop myself personally by completing my DofE Gold Award and volunteering to help support a charity called turn to starboard. 4) Feeling valued at work.1) Sometimes there is a lack of direction amongst tradesmen on site as there isn't enough communication from the companies senior management team, however this is something that is being addressed currently.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The excitement and variation of work provided by working on an active construction site, where things change week by week. Occasionally having to work in all weathers and the odd Saturday.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Feeling like I've contributed to make something on paper become a reality. Long hours. Mis-communication between different people within the team and therefore it feels like your fighting between each other.

Get to interact with all types of people and sectors. A lot of satisfaction when construction starts picking up shape. Still have to be out on site in bad weathers.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people are lovely, the hours are amazing, learning new things all the time and the flexibility. Grumpy people and the work load can be too much sometimes.
