    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible employer = Excellent work/life balance.
    Good remuneration.
    Massive amounts of opportunity.
    Excellent corporate culture and values - very inclusive and progressive.

    Cons

    Lots of management overhead and very little actual workers on the ground.
    Lots of siloed teams either competing with each other or completely unaware of what each other are doing.
    Far too risk averse.
    While the salary is good - the budgets we have to work with are insufficient.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs a full scalre digital transformation asap. We need to be aggressively moving towards a data driven, digital first model or risk being left behind.
