A great Company to work for.

I thoroughly enjoy employment with Downer as the Management are great to deal with, answer any questions I have and any problems sorted out immediately. A good work place environment, fellow workers are also ready to do a good days work without any fuss or bother. Always doing a high standard of work and adhering to Safety rules keeping everyone safe.

Management change was the end of a great company

Was a great company to work for until recent management changes and what seems to have become a culture of being just a number instead of a valued team member.

Pros

Great team onsite

Cons

Management needs to value their long term employees more
