What are the best and worst things about your company?
Varied work, no two days/projects are the same. This means that work remains interesting for the most part. The advantage of project surveying is that although the job is primarily office based, there is constant opportunity to get involved with site activity. This prevents the feeling of being 'cooped up'.There is some repetition in some work processes but this can be expected with any job. Given the nature of the job, there is going to be times where people will be unhappy with the decisions you make. You must be able to deal with confrontation and be firm but fair in the way you deal with sub-contractors.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
I really enjoy my job and enjoy working in a team environment. The construction industry is very team orientated and I enjoy having the communication with people on site and in the office and feeling part of something. I also love seeing the end results of a project where I can say I was involved in that building.The work load can sometimes be overwhelming but as long as you are determined and focus on time management, it can be handled correctly.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
All colleagues are great. Approachable and have an interest in your learning, as well as including you in conversations, which makes you feel welcome as well as enjoying coming to work.Gaining more responsibility can be daunting - asking for extra workload/not getting extra workload can make you feel like a spare part in the team.
