I worked at Transfield Services full-time (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 Management

- Focus on streamlining the company, reduce cost by reducing unnecessary management
- Focus on retaining good employees and provide training

    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


  2. "Good potential"

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

    Grow organically and don't put too much emphasis on M&A. Please improve the core capabilities of business development and winning contracts.
