    I worked at Thiess full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company benefits with fortnightly gatherings. Opportunity for growth within the company if projects are won. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Old fashioned boy club mentality. If you aren't in the boys club you won't be invited to social events or have opportunities for higher positions. Fell apart once Hochtief stripped down the company and released most of the long serving employees.

    Advice to Management

    You allowed the boys club management to choose who stayed and who went. You need to break up that group and hire new managers with fresh ideas to improve the company.

    I worked at Thiess full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company. Good systems in place. Great people. Diverse projects. Excellent remuneration. High safety standards.

    Cons

    High stress levels and long hours. Accountability for poor performance isn't addressed quickly enough due to the fast pace and size of the job placing extra pressure on the high performers to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    Going for the cheapest subcontractors places a lot of stress on the site teams as they have to do most of their work for them.
