An opportunity to learn about a new and growing industry

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
For a foreign company working in Australia, difficulties are expected. The project was interesting, upper management was young and lacked construction /manufacturing knowledge in remote location. A culture between upper management initially declined opportunities for improvement when it mattered, hence could have managed the project smarter. The location for this project was perfect environmentally, weather events were extreme.

Pros

A good oppurtunity to learn about renewable energy

Cons

Young PM micro managed and declined early opporunities to streamline processes based on knowledge

No recognition of efforts

Needs change of leadership that actually understands construction and EPC. Demanding management with minimal guidance and quick to blame, for events out of your control. Do not conduct risk analysis on projects and typically go for cheapest contractor without consideration of past performance an risk to project.

Pros

None

Cons

None
