Great company to work with, good pay. Not much project going on for them.
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Ichthys Tanks Project Darwin15 June 2017
I worked with Laing O'rourke for the Ichthys Tank Project in Darwin for 4 years and it's been tremendous effort to be one of those hundreds of workers involved in building the tanks for this very sophisticated LNG tanks project. Despite of the many issues and challenges during the construction we managed to built the tanks with the cooperation of the client, Inpex and our own construction team.
Building tanks is a life time experienced which I will never forget especially as Surveyor's involvement in those critical moments during construction.
Great experienced which is unforgettable.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Bit of politics going on, must know someone at the higher level to stay with them.
