    Pros

    - exposure to great projects...
    - great people

    Cons

    - Too much overhead - the PM's in the field have to support a huge level of executive overhead, making market competitiveness difficult.
    - Too many talented people have left and went to other companies, all that are left are salesmen and business developers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back to what made you great in the past. Look to what they are doing in the UK and AUS.

    I worked at Bovis Lend Lease

    Pros

    Many of the project employees are encouraging and appreciative of good work.

    Cons

    The NY HR department is ill-qualified and determined to keep qualified individuals from learning, growing and advancing. They have been known to single people out and project their insecurities on employees they deem threatening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try better to understand the strengths of your employees and foster opportunities for growth within those strengths.

    I have been working at Bovis Lend Lease

    Pros

    Benefits are fair, immediate managers are great to work for. Upper management needs to make a lot of changes and listen to their folks.

    Cons

    What happen to people first?
    Trust has become part of our core values, however there is no trust for higher management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your folks, listen to what we do on a daily basis.
    Understand new rules and regulations before sending them down the line for execution.
