    I worked at Multiplex full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I had a great mentor and pathway for career growth.

    Cons

    Unnecessary stress, long hours and a lack of cohesion within the wider team.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the hazing attitude of ‘this is how it was when I started out’. You need to show that you value your younger staff.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Multiplex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    An insight into the operations of a Tier 1 builder. Interesting projects to be involved with.

    Cons

    Complete disconnection between HR and site teams with not enough construction knowledge to be allowed to impact decisions. Long hours, poor flexibility and work life balance opportunities. Site cultures can be good, however mostly poor. A company structure with too many leaders and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is critical. Given the demanding jobs, managers should be more personable and honest with their employees.

    I have been working at Multiplex full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexi day once a month. Training offered if wanted/required. Equality in the workplace. Lots of opportunities for promotions. Bonuses offered yearly too.

    Cons

    Can be long hours but that is typical in construction.

    Advice to Management

    None - managers are approachable, level headed and have time for everyone: from the site cleaner to the Project Manager. Get rid of Workday though or at least only once a year. Oh and brilliant parties!!!
