    Pros

    The company takes learning and advancement seriously. If you demonstrate the willingness and ability to learn and work hard, you will see yourself moving forward. Company also has an active hear in listening to your interest so they place you where you say you'd like to be and do what they can to see you advance there.

    Working with union trades is a challenge. Sometimes the relationship/responsibilities between supers and pm's can get crossed.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lend Lease full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Competitive Salaries (but nothing fantastic, negotiate high in beginning)
    - you'll work with some fantastic people with outstanding knowledge of the industry
    - Decent New Grad Program
    - Diversity is great
    - International Company so exposure to coworkers from different countries and their experience
    - PTO is amazing and they do a better job of the work/life balance than most GCs although still expect long hours.

    Cons

    Corporate Structure prevents talented managers from doing greater things.
    Terrible raises and bonuses
    New to LA has created several learning curves that company has not yet overcome
    Success in other cities has created an arrogance in Los Angeles that has not provided good outcomes
    Pure GC with no interest in self-perform aspect
    In several legal situations with projects
    Set up to be an owner/GC not a pure General Contractor with such high overhead.
    Not competitive
    Promote people based on varying merit - nothing is guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    LA is not New York, Chicago or San Francisco - it needs to be treated differently
    Stop putting the responsibility on owners and subcontractors, negotiations need to be better.
    Diversify Market - high rise is not sustainable
    Worst New Hire program I have ever seen, if first impressions are key, then Lend Lease LA is the worst.
    That it takes months almost a year for people's promotions to kick is absolutely absurd and pathetic. Completely takes any reward away from the achievement and makes it a fight to get the salary and title you were promised. Absolutely pathetic.
