    Pros

    Downer is a large corporate which provides employees with ample opportunity to network and develop relationships with a wide range of people and skills sets. If you are a self-starter, you can get involved in a range of projects and initiatives, which keeps your role really interesting.
    The organisation is undergoing a lot of change, which means that you need to be flexible and adaptable to fit in, but this also comes with a lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    Sinde the organisation has grown through rapid acquisition, there are still distinct silos within the organisation which can make the operating environment challenging. This coupled with the lack of group-wide systems and technology platforms can mean that your time is spent trying to find information, which is quite frustrating. However, the leaders of the organisation are aware of this and there are a number of initiatives underway to address this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to concentrate on the people side of the business. Staff engagement is directly attributable to the culture of the organisation and it is important to provide not only commercial leadership to the business, but also win the hearts of employees so that they give that discretionary effort. Take time to talk to your people.
