    Pros

    You get to go home at the end of the day. That's the highlight, apart from that its little hard to find anything good to say about this place. And I got to resign and get a position that was with a decent company.

    Cons

    A company that seems to encourage bad and even bullying behaviour. Like an ostrich over health and safety. Management obviously got a PhD from the school of 'us and them'. Senior management should spent time doing their jobs instead of promoting themselves as gods gift to mankind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the constant feel good notes from the Australian manager. Nobody believes the constant rubbish you come out with. You need to buy a mirror. And take a good hard look in it.

    Offer career growth for junior and middle level staff.

    Pros

    - good work/ life balance - opportunity to work on high profile/ important projects - decent salary (can do better though) - most colleagues cooperate well

    Cons

    - some incompetent managers - dead wood in the organisation is tolerated, resulting in some quite senior positions being filled by lazy/ disengaged staff

    Advice to Management

    DPW has a very very top-down approach. Try to listen more to the ideas of the juniors.

    Big ideas but dont have qualified people. Good recreation facilities, decent salaries.

    Cons

    Weak Leadership. Dont know how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    I worked for around six months in General Admin and Travel in 2013. Leadership is weak with no sense of direction. Please be open to employee feedback and give opportunities for employees to show what they are capable of.
