    I worked at Leighton Contractors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Completing a development project for a normally construction-only company

    Cons

    Boys Club. Quite political/ who has known who for longest. Bad performance seemed to get rewarded more than good performance.

    I worked at Leighton Contractors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reasonable money and travel, sometimes being overpaid....good.

    Cons

    Abusive bully boys club, all mates and their wives in management roles. I worked for them for 4 years. Should have left on the first project when others were being psychically and mentally abused.

    I have been working at Leighton Contractors

    Pros

    Still has some good people left

    Cons

    HR and one or two people conspired to make their own "boys' club" And the management let them. Management use the scarce job situation as leverage, use passive aggressive bullying to let staff know that you have to do as I say or else. Work life balance is work much heavier than life, the work life balance slogan is just lip service. HR and one or two people have more say in who's hired and who's fired, and the management let them. Management seem to embrace pseudo intellectuals and idiot savants, accept poor performance as normative. Employees suffer fools in leadership, if there is one.
