    I worked at Downer Group

    Pros

    Terrific pay, friendly people, learned a great deal while on site

    Cons

    The family attitude that is present on site can backfire if you share your ideas about changing stagnant processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The amount of money wasted on site administrators who backed each other up when one would go on break was surprising. There doesn't need to be a full time staff member making over 100k sitting around for 3 weeks twiddling their thumbs and pretending to look busy. Might be an efficiency the company should look into.
