What are the best and worst things about your company?
Given a high level of responsibility and inclusion into the workings of the business from the beginning. The projects are practical and one is encouraged to get out on site visits where possible. There is a great sense of pride from within the group and opportunity for career progression.Perhaps more specific on the job training is needed from the outset

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The opportunities you are exposed to are brilliant giving you great exposure. You will also take responsibility for your own projects very quickly after you start. Running your own projects which you are very well supported on is what puts Berkeley apart from other employees at graduate level. Incentives / package.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The company as a whole are very welcoming. One of the best developers in London with a very good brand image in the industry. Help is given if required and there is a lot of potential for progression.Like all construction companies, the pressure can be high and the need to meet targets (time and cost) is vital.
