    Pros

    The pay is well and veteran workers with job knowledge ,experience makes them vital for they have the ability to get the job completed even under adverse conditions that is what makes them a more professional employee.

    Cons

    BIASED, more experienced workers being overlooked because of personal relations personal opinion unjust reprimands without being investigated fairly based of personal feelings lack of leadership experience also no employee appreciation at all .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to KNOW your employees do Not always trust the biased opinions of lower management .WE appreciate the fact you acquired Welltech safety .If you made surprise visits to the refineries unescorted without certain management you would receive HONEST opinion of the workers in the field with employees that feel like they matter They will take more pride and professionalism in their job morale will improve .Therefore revenue will increase and your more experienced employees will stay..But you still have a lot of the same practices that are continuing and they will continue unless you make some changes we will more then likely continue to loose vital contracts..

    Pros

    Steady pay check, 2 weeks on 2 off good shift.

    Cons

    Management in way over their heads. No communication what so ever. Any decent workers use this company as a stepping stone to going to work for another company. Nothing is done for appreciation of doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management that has qualifications

    I have been working at Transfield Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is great. I know I won't be on the same pay grade if I go elsewhere.

    Cons

    Despite pay being great, Transfield don't look after their staff. There are few opportunities for professional growth, training or even obtaining basic resources to do the job such as software, human resources or equipment.
    Out-sourcing shared services has led to serious losses in efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop draining contracts of their resources. I understand the need to save a buck, but look to efficiencies in corporate operations before risking the welfare of operational staff and company reputation.

    Pros

    To work in an Electrical Industry in NZ, you can only work for a contracting company like transfield Services in most of the cases.

    Cons

    Hard to ask for pay rise once you are in the company even that you have earn lot more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard to ask for pay rise once you are in the company even that you have earn lot more experience. People will just move to another company when they had enough.
