    I worked at Lend Lease full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexible hours and life work balance

    Cons

    Jobs for the boys culture. Worked in IT, absolutely poor environment.
     Lots of politics, highly bureaoucratic, only reward the mates or people they liked not matter how incompetent.
    A couple of years they got rid of the sharks from C level down to mid level. Still environment has not improved much, highly political.
    If you truly value your personal well being avoid this organisation at all costs

    Advice to Management

    Bring decency, honesty and transparency.
    Do what you preach
    Reward real achievers, not people that fits in your mould or thinking
    Eradicate cynicism and unethical behavior, specially mid mgmt. Bring straight shooters and have open and honest conversations with the business areas that you are supposed to serve well and tell them the truth of what you can realistically achieve. Stop lies.

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time

    Pros

    Worked at Lend Lease Chatswood Branch with the MDM - Master Data Management Team. Typical 9-5 day job, learned Oracle system. Management can be dictated from above and makes decision based on funding. Co-workers are awesome to work with. Hardest part of the job was knowing that your pay rate is way lower than the people you trained. Most enjoyable part was the table tennis tournament evey friday and free drinks.

    Cons

    HR in mediocrity and seems lost.
