    I have been working at Lendlease full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Business unit direct boss encourages their employees to enroll in courses to learn more about construction safety.

    Cons

    In this competitive US market, the values of this Australian based company makes it very difficult to remain fiscally competitive while adhering to their corporate safety rules. There isn't much room for safety team members to grow in this business unit. You are overworked and underpaid. Many of our job sites are understaffed from our business unit. They can easily go elsewhere with better pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management is not up front with their employees and they treat their administrative support staff like crap. If you aren't a favorite of a higher up in your business unit you don't get far at all. If you say safety is a priority, then make your safety teams feel like they are valued.
