    I worked at Lendlease part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, you will gain experience in many different area’s, a great job for someone studying or the like. You’ll make a lot of new friendships.

    Cons

    Very repetitive, not enough work to fill hours of the day, kept asking for more to do, projects given in marketing and others took credit for others hard work. Learning curve, very different job to the one, I applied for. Not totally candid about the position. No chance of moving up or on to anything else. Don’t utilise all their staffers skills. While some staff are overwhelmed by workload, others have nothing to do.
