No opinion of CEO

Pros

Cyclical business and when the business is good you can be rewarded for hard work. Projects are fun and interesting.

Cons

If you have experience it helps to be an independent worker, because not much time or effort is invested in employee training. Planning and preparedness are sometimes not a priority.

Advice to Management

Invest in inexperienced employees training and encourage continued training. Offer more employee incentives. Drop billing rates to become more competitive and provide room to train.

    I worked at Leighton Group full-time

    Pros

    Not a lot of micro-managing. Good at Project Management activities for client only.

    Cons

    No mentorship. Left on your own to execute a vision. Old boys club-with most of the staff working there for over 10 years-set in their ways and not open to a new way of doing work. Not very technically strong. Hire and Fire mentality to keep old staff around. Huge turn around for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Get ride of the oldies if you want to see change and growth.
