Pros

Good company
Good products
Monday thru Friday days

Cons

The company itself was not an issue. As with any workplace, other employees can make or break and cause/fuel drama. This office has one of the latter.

Advice to Management

The management was fair and professional. I have no real advice I would like to share regarding this location as far as management goes.

    Pros

    - Generally a good work atmosphere and culture. It's easy to get along with many of the employees from across the whole business.

    - Training is generally good enough to prepare employees for their respective roles.

    - Reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    - Pay and conditions for employees is generally not all that competitive.

    - Lack of genuine effort to retain the best or right people for the job as there is generally no incentives, bonuses, or any kind of rewards to employees who perform well for the company.

    - Sometimes a lack of equipment to get the job done and workplace safety is not always prioritised the way it should be.

    - Lack of opportunity to advance to more senior positions as many of the jobs within the company are 'dead end'. You've pretty much got to wait until somebody senior retires until you can be considered for promotion and competition is fierce.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more genuine effort the retain the best people who perform well for the company such as providing more incentives to stay. Safety should be pushed more than what it is and is not always prioritised like it should be. A lack of career advancement for many employees should also be addressed. Despite the above mentioned, workplace culture is generally good and the training is generally good also. It's not a bad place to work but could be better for more higher achieving individuals who are genuinely seeking a career.

    Pros

    Good company, great new management from overseas steering the business in a better direction. Nice head office location and building.

    Cons

    Older style of management and could have adapted to newer management thinking earlier. Management to slow to change and bad decision like selling Origin.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt faster and buy cement trucks for the long term.
