    Great PTO/benefits
    Smart construction
    Top of the line projects
    Great office space/location

    When projects start to go sideways it's every man for themselves. Watch your back. Also minimal investment in training.

    Pros

    Good company, struggling in LA. Good PTO and compensation. Trouble retaining local talent. Opportunity to move internationally. Good training through company.

    Cons

    Trouble adjusting to local market conditions. Management is too internally focused. So many layers that it’s hard to be nimble.

    I worked at Lend Lease full-time

    Pros

    I was able to relocate to California

    Cons

    Pay not up to local living expenses.
    HR. is useless in dealing with bad line management. They only protect the company in the legal areas. By not following through on employee complaints of bad managers, it fosters a hostile work environment and bulling.
    Safety is used as a battering ram. The expectations for safety are only for the public, internally they skip safety over cost frequently. Then EH&S blames field supervision for everything, without giving any support to project management or field supervision. EH&S is not held accountable for anything.
    Executive management rairly walks the projects. When they do, they ignore the work force.
    They have so many processes in use, there is no flow or consistency from one project to another. They are using 3 different project management program on the project.
    The executive leader in the LA office seems to have little to no real construction experience, (corporate office experience only).

    Advice to Management

    The Americas overall management needs to be scrutinized. They are a stubbie short of a six pack. The Los Angeles BU is a bit shonky.
