    Pay Workload Work heaped onto you Micro Management Favouritism

    Advice to Management

    Think they are married to LendLease Useless pay rises if any. Im sure they get a nice one courtesy of us. Aggressive and selfish attitudes. You know who you are.

    I worked at Lendlease

    Pros

    Nice office, generous in food and programs to staff.

    Cons

    Overworked, long hours. People that have worked In the company for too long are negative and uninspiring.

    Advice to Management

    You offer so many fantastic programs and preach how much you care about your people. This isn’t aligned to how manager’s treat staff. Has potential to be a great place but needs fresh ideas and people.

  10. "Don't waste your time"

    Former Employee - Undergraduate Engineer 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Lendlease full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Occasionally get some good projects.

    Cons

    - A reputation of hiring a lot of undergrads, stringing them along, then giving hardly any of them grad jobs. - HR is basically non-existent and approaches all undergrads as being disposable. - Recruiting process was long and drawn out - Treated as cheap labour working long hours, then discarded when you graduate

    Advice to Management

    The only way to correct your current reputation at universities is to start treating undergrads with respect and engaging with students. The current calibre of applicants and undergrads is subpar purely because all the smart ones know better than to apply.
