      Luck of the Draw

      26 Mar 2021 - Graduate Chemical Engineer in Perth, Western Australia, Western Australia
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good company if you are lucky enough to get put onto good projects and with good team mates Wide range of teams, project types, interstate and global opportunities if you are persistent enough to go after them and have the good fortune to be in the right place at the right time

      Cons

      Pay was capped yearly for young graduate engineers at the time with no prospects of a decent payrise compared to other similarly experienced individuals in the market at the time Depending on the market at the time, maintaining full utilisation and finding fully billable work can become difficult and competitive Projects can be under-budgeted at first, requiring discretionary hours and pressure to complete tasks to a high quality in limited time
