Positive Outlook

I worked at Lend Lease full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many companies talk about their values and ethics. The senior management at Lend Lease is striving to put it into action. They adopted JMJ's Incident and Injury Free Program and it's working. As a woman I was allowed to be the project manager on a $117 million construction project. I don't know of another construciton company that would give a woman that opportunity.

Cons

There are still many managers who are dinosaurs and they instill their archaic attitudes into younger managers.

Advice to Management

Get down in the weeds more. The Australian business values are clashing with American business culture. The ideals you are trying to instill don't make it down to the project level because there are managers who kill them along the way.

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very good benefits. Good training. Decent pay. Flexibility. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Good ole boy network. If you are connected, you are fine. Inefficiencies produce repeated duplication of work effort. Very heavy work load and very long hours with very high demand for results. Review process is cumbersome, lengthy and usually does not apply to current tasks.

    Advice to Management

    The 7 P's apply strongly. Take a good look at the reasons for so much inefficiency.


  2. "Excellent Company for someone wanting to drive their own career path"

    - Can be somewhat political, even at middle managerial level
