    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Various work sites and fast paced work environment. The work season tends to go by very quickly

    Cons

    Very long hours and a lot of time traveling and being away from home. Although safety really does come 1st with this company any construction related work comes with some risk.

    I have been working at Hanson Aggregates

    Pros

    Exposure to the whole business as a Grad. Great experience and knowledge to be had. Heading in the right direction with training and safety. They look after you if you work hard in regards to promotions/moves.

    Cons

    poor pay increase after grad program.
    work/life balance or money could be better. one or the other.
    senior management at the moment doesn't have the balls to stand up and say we need to retain our staff and the reason they are leaving is because we don't pay all that great, expect the world and don't realize that just because a RGM is willing to work 60-70hrs per week not everyone else is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a little more, people will stay in roles longer. Build stability and sustainability. The Melbourne business has "fallen" apart when it comes to senior managers leaving and all operations have had new managers. Although the managers are keen and skilled they are picking up the pieces from what is left over after disheartened managers have left. This is costing a considerable amount of money. Why not just pay everyone well and stop with the "one day you'll get your reward attitude". Show me the money and you'll have an unbeatable business for years to come.
