I have been working at Transfield Services full-time for more than a year
Pros – A great company. I've had many opportunities working with Transfield to help grow my career. I've been with the company for 2 years and it's one of the best places I've worked. I love the teams I've worked with, and the management. The company holds true to it's values.
Cons – Complaints throughout the company are regarding payroll and wages staff being paid incorrectly. I haven't been efffected but I know many who have. It's difficult to sell this comapny as a "great place to work" if people aren't getting paid!
Advice to Senior Management – I know that the company's payroll system is currently under review but we MUST get this right! We should also have better training systems in place. Perhaps a team dedicated to travelling to new contracts to show them the processes and how to find answers.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Transfield Services as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – They gave me a job when I needed one, HR were helpful, my direct manager was friendy and approachable.
Cons – The work was boring. To get the job required an engineering degree but used no engineering skills. The pay was less than other graduate roles and my supervisor (below manager) was incompetent and unable to lead.
Advice to Senior Management – If hiring for a leadership position make sure that person has experience in leading a team, can identify with the team and earn their respect and be able to get results which out hvaing to resort to 'cracking the whip'.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Transfield Services full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – - Varied opportunities provided you are willing to take initiative
- Good people at the front line
- Great HSE culture
Cons – - Typical big company, top heavy and bureaucratic, poor organisation structure
- Poor client relations
- Apathetic middle management
- First cost saving measure during the GFC was a stop on all training programs and graduate training, which seems very short sighted
Advice to Senior Management – - Focus on streamlining the company, reduce cost by reducing unnecessary management
- Focus on retaining good employees and provide training
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Transfield Services
Pros – Encourage Grads to rotate at 6-12 month frequency
Offer international rotations
Cons – Senior management seems to have its head in the right place but the business as a whole seems to not really know who it is. Lacks a focus.
OK starting salary bit 3% annual increase in pay barely competitive with CPI

I worked at Transfield Services
Pros – There are some potentials working on strategy side as the Company has a large portfolio of business and investment. Some operate good while a few of them perform poorly which needs good strategy guidance and adjustment.
Cons – The management team needs great development on experience in a global company management.
Advice to Senior Management – Grow organically and don't put too much emphasis on M&A. Please improve the core capabilities of business development and winning contracts.
