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

    Pros

    Good Salary that is not the best in the industry but not the worst.
    Good Benefits and PTO plan.
    Great opportunity to learn on large scale jobs with some amazing and talented people if you on the right team. Great culture on the surface

    Cons

    Very aloof management style with definite favorites that have little to do with skills or talent and more to do with hours spent on site or being seen.
    New management team and portfolio in this market has led to a very cutthroat style of business in the field. I was told to look the other way too many times to be comfortable with due to the "global pressure".
    Unless you are one of the chosen few, your options are limited.
    There are other options out there if you want to preserve your integrity

    Advice to Management

    Spend time with your entire workforce, and get to know all of your people not just your favorites. Practice what the entire company culture preaches.Understand that some people value their time away from the job site as well. Try to make the culture that is a promoted throughout the company a reality on the job.

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Career opportunities within the Washington Area. There is opportunity among a wide variety of jobsites (residential, office, school, lab) that are usually available if you talk with management about placement onto thos jobs.

    Cons

    Benefits vary. Many great programs (Summer hours with early leave on Fridays) but only available to those working out of the head office, not usually extended to the jobsites. Leave/PTO programs favor those countries with general cultural acceptance of work/life balance, not within the US. For example, parental leave favors AU or european areas vs. the US. Expect to work up 6 days a week at least once a month if on a jobsite. Some may have periods of 6-7 days every week, though rare.
