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

    Pros

    Good benefits, free fruit and snacks. That's it.

    Cons

    Sexist, top heavy, expect 3 people's jobs from 1 person, bullying culture which is ironic as they pride themselves on being people friendly. Could not wait to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Examine the support staff roles and their functions. Senior level management need to be accountable for their behaviour.

    Cons

    Reducing employee benefits poor leadership choices

    Advice to Management

    Lendlease are reducing employee benefits I.e. travel, subsistence so it’s more of a risk to the employee. How does this retain staff given other companies offer more competitive options?

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Lendlease full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very relaxed. No pressure. Management never bother you if you keep hidden.

    Cons

    Management are never seen and only look after themselves. Hard to get promoted as management are too busy dealing with gaining new contracts and not dealing with the ones they currently have. Training is only for management. No technical training currently offered.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your good staff and reward them. All your good staff have nearly gone as you too bothered about your own jobs.
