Good engineers to learn from, good managers

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I worked at Sinclair Knight Merz full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI joined as a graduate and stayed for three years before moving overseas. I was lucky to have some great managers and project managers that knew how to deal with people. Also there are great technical staff to learn from. I also had the opportunity to be seconded 6 months to another office in my second year though that was requested by me. The project manager during secondment was amazing. Work life balance was good due to good technical people and good service delivery.

ConsOffice layout at the time meant teams were separated on different floors. Though in new office this may be different. Younger less experienced managers moving up was not as good with people management just through lack of experience. Not a con, but at the time they were trying to improve retention of mid career consultants 5-10 yr experience, and developed some programs. Appears management was trying to respond quickly to needs and trends. Not sure if that has improved since I left.

Advice to Senior Managementnothing specific
