    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good and interesting projects. Employees are well resourced. Good Salaries, a little too much for some employee's level of output. Excellent HR.

    Cons

    Corporate machine - out of touch with what happens day to day/on the ground. Communication very poor at project level and from Head Office. Poor supply chain relationships. Impersonal to employees - does not utilise employee's strengths and experiences to their advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees - their background and experience, use them to the best of their abilities and to the advantage of the project/business. Communicate more - from top-down. Clarity is best, keeping employees in the dark is how misinformation escalates.
