    Pros

    The compensation and benefits were generous and competitive. Working from home was a perk (and at times a challenge). I respected the management and my peers.

    Cons

    We had a client that was a total meat grinder. The expectations were unreasonable, but we were desperate to keep the contract. I wanted to like Lend Lease, but that client was unbearable to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Your supportive culture is totally undermined when you allow a client to beat up your entire team. I always had a sense that it was a layoff or tolerate situation, so I guess thanks for keeping me employed. Sorry I couldn't hang in long enough to get through that contract though.

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in working times and PTO. The pay is great. The team that I work with are a nice group of people to work with. There is a high turnover rate, whether it's to move within the company or move laterally in another company. Oh and Safety, Safety, Safety.

    Cons

    The benefits could be a little better, especially where dependent coverage costs are concerned. There is a high turnover rate, whether it's to move within the company or move laterally in another company.

    Advice to Management

    A great manager should see positive growth with their employees. If you take the time to train and empower your employees they will strive for excellence. A way to know that you are doing a good job managing, is to see your employees moving up within the company.
