    I worked at Lend Lease full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good package and salary.

    Cons

    In the UK it’s led by a culture of fear of loosing your job (stated to make you perform better). Senior management don’t enagage and no regocnition if your not in the Bovis old boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to get to grips with what motivates your employees. It’s not the occasional free drinks in head office.
