    Pros

    I had a great mentor and pathway for career growth.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Lose the hazing attitude of ‘this is how it was when I started out’. You need to show that you value your younger staff.

    I worked at Multiplex full-time for 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 made onto a pdf version which isn't very stimulating work. Salary is also on the low side for the amount of hours you put in.

    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.
