    I worked at Beca full-time

    Pros

    Concentrate on meeting clients' demand and have a thorough system of delivering outcomes.

    Cons

    Too much work stress. I was involved in 8 projects at one time and I had to finish all different kinds of work including bidding report and preliminary design.

    Advice to Management

    Work as efficient as possible. Always mind the emotions of colleagues and listening from the bottom.

      Pros

      - Great culture by educating, promoting diversity, meetings. etc. (acting on it can be another thing). - Great office's location, easy to access by public transports. - Great Graduates programme. - Free travels to New Zealand and other states within Australia.

      Cons

      - Too many meetings, events. etc. to cover up the lack of projects available. - Not nurturing & promoting the talented/ skilled/ productive people. - A small player in Australia (Tier 2/3), NZL's HQ don't see that as a problem. - No indications of monitoring skill levels (stuck at intermediate/ senior levels)
