    I worked at Lend Lease as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Company to work for, it was actually my dream job. Great peers and fun environment.

    Cons

    They like to hire a lot through recruiters and don't end up hiring most contract workers. I worked 3 months past my 9 month contract with great feedback and mention of full time hire. Never got hired, felt like broken promises and they ended up firing coworkers on contracts as well. They just used us for the project needed and let us go.

    Advice to Management

    Dont give false hope to contract employees, just be straight.
