    I have been working at Fletcher Building full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The new leadership team has real commitment, our new GM is a good man who has brought a clear vision, drive, open inclusive environment, employee and customer focus and positive change is happening.

    Cons

    At Fletcher building we have clear silos. People are good in both sides of the fence, though the fence needs to be removed to get more things done, the good intent is there, alignment and one team mentality will help

    Advice to Management

    Corporate, executives and leadership team need to increase support to shared services, remove silos to create common practices.
    Keep promoting the values we have through examples everyday, we have good people in shared services, give them more recognition.

    I have been working at Fletcher Building full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - lots of work to do if you like a busy and challenging environment
    - good people
    - the diversity and scale of the portfolio is massive
    - lots of opportunities to improve

    Cons

    - not as agile as a small business, very complex
    - the old mentality needs to go, embrace and drive change
    - will be good to see more recognition of staff that are working hard
    - politics

    Advice to Management

    A lot of good people in this business but management has not been consistent in recognising these people. You need to wake up and start recognising them. I've seen some terrible decisions over the last 12 months in promoting the wrong people.

    Pros

    Vast programme of transformation work across corporate and shared services

    Cons

    50 different businesses all with their own processes, coming together for the first time, presents its challenges
    Not enough proper process reengineering. No clean standard established to aim for, which compounds the problem of trying to get anything global to work

    Advice to Management

    Leadership lacking consistency of vision and drive to keep moving in the right direction. Need to break down pre-existing empires

    Pros

    Input into your career and growth to take you where you want to go is impressive. The company invests heavily in L&D. You get to work with quite fantastic people every day and you get the challenge to grow and push yourself. It's a big company and the opportunities are big. You see people move to new roles and ones outside the traditional fits. The Vision & Values are great and really fit with me personally. I like being able to balance my life outside work and that getting the work done is more important than where you do that.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a cruise'y 9-5 job this isn't for you. There are a lot of challenges and lots to do, but you can see the impact of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the Vision and Values

    I have been working at Fletcher Building full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a big global business which does create opportunity to develop your career in a number of ways. I love the values of the company and the fact they really do want to make a positive contribution to the communities we are in. It's a very down to earth culture where you can be yourself.

    Cons

    It's still a business in transition which creates loads of opportunity but you've got to be happy in environment of change and be pretty resilient. With so many different businesses it's hard to build a single culture and to communicate effectively across all.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership group are generally excellent - they just need to maintain the pace and keep people on board.
