    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

    I worked at Lendlease full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at global head office. Great location. Take very good care of employees in terms of the work environment and employee benefits. Free medical check ups, mental health check ups, great parental leave, flexible working, etc etc.

    Cons

    There are so many people who have been with the company for a long time and this means there is A LOT of politics. Also because the company is so big and so high profile in Australia, it's filled with people who are just in it to climb the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Better mentoring of "junior" staff (because there was none).
