Pros

People really do come first.
Great team working environment.

Cons

Senior management is in constant state of change. Doesn't appear to be a lot of stability in corporate senior management.

Advice to Management

Allow the local offices to operate as stand alone units. Most office have been very successful this way. Changing to this "virtual" vertical market structure doesn't make sense and will not work.

    Pros

    Many of the project employees are encouraging and appreciative of good work.

    Cons

    The NY HR department is ill-qualified and determined to keep qualified individuals from learning, growing and advancing. They have been known to single people out and project their insecurities on employees they deem threatening.

    Advice to Management

    Try better to understand the strengths of your employees and foster opportunities for growth within those strengths.

    Pros

    The ability to try different roles, if you are up for a challenge. Friendly people all round. Strong focus on safety.
    As it is a multinational, opportunities to relocate to different offices eg Dubai, Sydney
    Strong backlog of work means different types of construction projects are available. If you have a sustainability focus, Bovis Lend Lease has a strong sustainability department.

    Cons

    There is a "we don't do it like this in New York" mentality which affects the ability of changes to filter through in their largest office.
    In New York, the cubicles are still in the old-style "high partitions", making the working environment feeling like a maze and not conducive to collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Focus back on the basics now that 130 Liberty is resolved.
