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

    Pros

    Flexible working from home or office, reasonable pay, London office has good quality employees, MHFA training, good quality grads, nice London location and amenities, lots of training and CPD opportunities, really good support staff for health and wellbeing.

    Cons

    Line managers should be trained efficiently and appropriately and only matched with their team members based on complimentary personalities. Not enough monitoring of Line management quality, some line managers are very poor communicators. Constant senior management changes. Business not transparent enough, not enough projects.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to restructure, stop changing senior management, start listening to employees, take mental health more seriously rather than going down the traditional HR route which is NOT appropriate. Ensure staff who transition to new roles are looked after and trained appropriately rather than assume we can just get on with it by mindreading.

    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.

    Pros

    Good culture, good health and wellbeing plans, open minded and good opportunities within to move around. A lot of good people to work around you just need to spot the good ones.

    Cons

    Too much business changes from almost year to year, lack of stability in management. Old bad log can be detrimental to a team.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent be accountable make decision and stand by it. No point of having layers of management where no one is giving a firm decision.
