Downer Group Employee Review

Downer makes you feel the way the name sounds

Downer was a very disappointing and toxic workplace. The pay was underwhelming, nepotism is high and incentive is low. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here.

Used to be a place everyone wanted to work.

When I was there years ago it was fair and the interview process was non biased. Now it is very much a boys club, and experience counts for nothing. But if you have a relative, friend or someone elses family member who is part of the current management circle of friends looking for a job with no associated experience welcome to Downer.My advise would be unless you fall into the above category .Look somewhere else, don't waste your time! Because you will be wasting your time.

Interesting and Varied Work, in various W.A. Non Ferrous Mining Industries.

The typical day ranged from designing, Man Power Management, Project Management.The Division had been brought by Downer and there was a clash between the original owners processes of "Deal Done with a Handshake" and the "The requirements of Quality Assured, Paper Trails" and so many old clients lost. The range of possible projects that could land on your desk was brilliant.
