Plant Manager in Whitsunday QLD
Downer upper managing should have close relationship with the customers.Downer is a great company but due to greedyness of middle management Downer is loosing its reputation. Middle management misleading the higher management and it is too late them to realise the mistakes middle management has done. As per my experience, non of the councils that have given contracts to Downer will not reconsider to give a contract again. As ex-Downer employ I feel sad about the situation. On the other hand water & wastewater business is about 1% of total business and Downer may not worry about that but it is damaging the Downer’s reputation. It is very sad.

Supervisor in West Australia
High Speed Revolving Door Turn over is very high. Whoever not escaped from the long term staff are overloaded with work and don't look happy. Casual workers are being tricked in accepting roles as long term roles that usually end up un expectidly in just weeks. Low paid existing staff exploit casual staff and dont give them a chance to breath. Cost is what is in the brain of staff.Forgot to say HR staff don't look low paid and more suitable for retail work.

Lead Electrical Estimator in Newcastle NSW
Average place to work,I have been at at a lot better.quite a few bettDowner management at the time I was there approximately 7 yebetter9ars was a boys club very insular and nepotism was rife. Purcasing preferences within this company were given to suppliers who were giving the most benefits to those providing the orders, thus providing a lucrative overall package to those in the club. Not a good place to work if you are trusting and basically honest.
