    I worked at Lendlease (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company with good benefits
    Great projects in different sectors

    Cons

    You are constantly micro managed
    People who have worked at Lendlease for a long time are given preferential treatment even if they aren’t good at their jobs

    Pay less than other tier ones and don’t let them sell you the work life balance myth because it’s not true
