Communication & Culture Need Improvement
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Western Sydney, NSW – 17 March 2018
Worked for Transfield Services (now Broadspecrum) for 7 years, experienced both good and bad periods across a number of roles, however the whole time I was there I felt undervalued and underpaid.
In the final year of me working for them, I worked 110+ hours a week, every week and was loaded with at least three times that of any of my colleagues in the same position. I was paid under $80k including super and tax.
The termination of my employment with the company was soul destroying, and handled horribly.
The management promote work/life balance, career progression and good culture, yet knowingly act very differently... ensuring they have a good work/life balance, not their sub-ordinates, they create a horrible workplace by talking poorly about staff and management to others staff and management, and don’t promote from with in - making that decision well before interviews even begin.
The company once was an amazing place to work, at least I am told - It had great potential to be great, but there’s no way it can be with the people that are there now, the culture is now to inbred to be removed. It is incredibly sad.
Relocation opportunities nationally and internationally, Tend to keep staff on for long periods.
Poor work/life balance, Poor pay conditions, Bad culture, Company seems to change direction too often
