    Pros

    This is the best company I've ever worked for. Interesting projects are given to you as an admin. Managers are flexible and actually care about you. Growth is encouraged and pay raises are regular. Between holidays, wellness days / incentives, PTO, fantastic benefits, and exceptional coworkers; I'd say there's no place else to work in the construction industry.

    Cons

    Projects get chaotic when you're on tight schedules - if you don't have fantastic time management skills and the ability to switch gears at the drop of a hat this job is not for you. The hours can get long too as you are expected to complete objectives no matter what (the norm in this industry).

    I worked at Lend Lease full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Continuing Education, Employee Programs, Stable Company, High Aspirations, High Profile work.

    Cons

    If you are not Australian, be careful. They think Americans are all basically idiots and cowboys. This is not a construction company per se. It is an investment company that does construction on the side. They claim to be - and are- unique. They are a powerhouse in Australia but a paper tiger in the US.

    It is very easy to lay off employees of yours in another country - especially if they aren't in your clique.

    Keep your head down.

    Advice to Management

    For God's sake - Live your own values. You're not fooling anyone.

    Pros

    High standards, excellent benefits, good people. Lend Lease is very proactive about caring for employees and creating a positive working environment. It's a very large stable company.

    Cons

    The Property Management part of the company is going strong. Construction development continuity needs to improve. The construction side had to lay off many experienced professionals due to lack of work.
