    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in working times and PTO. The pay is great. The team that I work with are a nice group of people to work with. There is a high turnover rate, whether it's to move within the company or move laterally in another company. Oh and Safety, Safety, Safety.

    Cons

    The benefits could be a little better, especially where dependent coverage costs are concerned. There is a high turnover rate, whether it's to move within the company or move laterally in another company.

    Advice to Management

    A great manager should see positive growth with their employees. If you take the time to train and empower your employees they will strive for excellence. A way to know that you are doing a good job managing, is to see your employees moving up within the company.

  7. A good company to intern with

    I worked at Lend Lease as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern I found myself surrounded by intelligent people that were generous with their time to help a non-experienced worker. Pay was excellent for an intern.

    Cons

    The company is so expansive and established that it is difficult, at least for an intern, to feel that they are actually having an impact.
