    I worked at Lend Lease part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, very friendly work environment. Pay is quite good, and the fact that there is many there that want you to listen to their experiences for your development and growth.
    Management are also great in terms of listening and taking constructive criticism on board.
    Generally, all round a great place to work.

    Cons

    Decision making from higher up takes far longer, and OH&S is incredibly over enforced on paper with little improved effectiveness.
    Offices are normally in an isolated area which can be cumbersome when driving to and from work or also getting to worksites.

    Advice to Management

    Better OH&S strategies on site, as in 2014 the current methods were written about everything yet not really compressible . In addition, these methods were not up to scratch or enforced to a strong degree, therefore, incidents still occurred.
