    I worked at Bovis Lend Lease full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company embraced safety as a culture.

    Cons

    Stifling procedures and processes, sometimes gets in the way of doing the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you hire young and dont hang onto the experienced, you will pay for the learning curve and inexperience many times past the difference in salary base.

    Pros

    Bovis is a big company so you can transfer worldwide if there is an opening, however, you have to dig to find these opportunities.

    Cons

    In CA, Bovis only does construction management, which has dried up for them over the past 3 years. Sometimes when you get placed on a project, you are stuck there and can't move around to other projects if they like you. You can get pigeonholed into a position, and your career growth stops.

    I worked at Bovis Lend Lease

    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.
