    I worked at Multiplex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big projects to work on and potentially get access to some of the smarter people in the industry to learn from.

    Cons

    The graduate program is comprehensive but can feel very degrading for university graduates. E.g. there will be a lot of printing and hitting forward in the document control rotation and laminating signs in the safety rotation. There will also be a lot of palming off of work to graduates and these tend to be the work that no one wants to do, e.g. make signs or marking up physical comments that an engineer/design manager...

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain top talent from your graduate intake you need to keep the work interesting. It makes sense that the easy work will be given to the graduates/cadets but your graduates will want to be constantly learning so it's important to communicate to your Project Engineers who manage them to keep that in mind and mix in some interesting work with the boring work.

    I have been working at Multiplex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    An insight into the operations of a Tier 1 builder. Interesting projects to be involved with.

    Cons

    Complete disconnection between HR and site teams with not enough construction knowledge to be allowed to impact decisions. Long hours, poor flexibility and work life balance opportunities. Site cultures can be good, however mostly poor. A company structure with too many leaders and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is critical. Given the demanding jobs, managers should be more personable and honest with their employees.
