    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Pay is consistent with industry average.

    Cons

    Policies take too long to be passed down to the construction project level. By the time changes reach the project level they're outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Align individual growth, career advancement and performance with compensation increases. Cut some of the red tape and institute proper changes.

    Pros

    Good pay Usually takes in 2-3 year projects which creates stability at your position Chance to work with some very smart people who can build just about any size project

    Cons

    If you don't rub elbows with the right people you can consider yourself an outsider and thus expendable Work very long hours and they expect weekends as well, even if a project is on schedule The management and leadership vibe can be very secretive and create a feeling of separation from those who are "in" and those who are "out". Expectations are high, depending on who you are working with, even if the leaders of a project don't hold themselves to the same levels of expectations. Safety is a huge factor with this company, almost to the point where it feels it is a safety company trying to do construction, not the other way around. Safety is important but common sense has to be used when planning and performing work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to better communicate with employees so there is not such a feeling of uncertainty and separation.

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Active, engaging work usually involving high profile projects. High-end marketing but uncomfortable internal politics.

    Cons

    Restructuring and combining all 'Lend Lease' companies (such as Bovis and Actus) created one "Lend Lease" with significant internal clashes and turf battles. They have been shrinking for years and have lost a lot of really good talented people. It was a much better company when it was Bovis Lend Lease.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management seems to surround themselves only with yes-men. This makes them insulated, out of touch and generally clueless about important issues. They used to go on sincere 'listening tours' and send out employee satisfaction surveys and address low scoring items the next year (as Bovis). They haven't done that in a long, long time and it seems like they (Lend Lease) doesn't really care anymore.

    Pros

    Commitment to military families, live the values, great leadership, community involvement, great benefits from not just typical medical, dental and vision but also health and wellness bonuses.

    It's downtown do you must deal with the commute

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    You are building newer and better housing for our men and women serving to protect and defend us all

    Cons

    Inexperienced senior management. No training. No support. All departments operate within their own swim lanes and do not cross support each other to mutually achieve company objectives and goals.

    Advice to Management

    When harassment cases are reported to HR do not dismiss them. At least follow up so good people are not lost.

    I worked at Lend Lease full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice projects. Some really excellent, intelligent people. Very safety conscious. High gloss marketing. They have an attractive, prepared 'talk' that they don't always 'walk'.

    Cons

    Tendency to be clannish and secretive. Restructuring has created negative dynamics (fearful and insecure). Some major-league ego maniacs and power trippers resulting in back-biting and in-fighting. Horrible for women at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to get honest feedback from all aspects of the business instead of relying on sycophants.

    Pros

    There are very talented people at Lend Lease. Their repuation for safety is incredible, and ingrained to all employees.

    Cons

    The company has lost 30 plus employees in the New York office, some of which have been with the company for 20 years. It seemed that every week 1 to 3 people have left the company. The company made little to no attempt to keep employees on the brink of leaving.

    I worked at Lend Lease (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everybody is very friendly and willing to help. Despite the big firm, the office is very close and personal.

    Cons

    There weren't really any cons. The people were great and the work was challenging.

    I worked at Lend Lease full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are very professional and required nothing less than complete safety on this job.

    Cons

    The job of course ending.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really. They had meetings frequently so you could voice your opinion.
