    I worked at Fletcher Building part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great aspirations around business transformation. Many really great people working all through the organisation and committed to what they do. Fair REM and flexible working policies.

    Cons

    Hard aspects to the transformation including knowledge how much should go to the corporate centre versus leaving accountability in the business. Great aspects to the old culture and family values but also lack of performance focus that leaders are trying to shift.

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain balance between loading up the corporate centre and maintaining accountability in the business units. Think carefully about what is best to sit out in the business and what can be generic in the centre

    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.

    I worked at Fletcher Building full-time

    Pros

    It has a very easy going and relaxed office environment. You are allowed to do your job with minimal supervision. Staff are very friendly.

    Cons

    Sometimes the upper management is to hands off in areas they shouldn't be, poor communication from upper management to staff, this is slowly changing however.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to staff more regularly about where the business is going and how it is doing in the market. Remind staff about courses available through the company.

    Pros

    great people development, great challenges. If you are looking to work in a complex diverse environment that is just bursting with opportunities, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    change takes time and can be demoralising

    Advice to Management

    Empower and trust your people.
    Lead by example.
    Make change stick.

    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.
