The management within the commercial team are not to be trusted. They are manipulative & feeble in managing the work. They absolutely have to control over the cost and zero understanding of D&C. Their only goal is to cut corners and save money on the job, being unfair to Subcontractors. Not to mention placing graduates and staff with no real qualification on the billion-dollar project just to save on $, (i,e family members without qualifications on the commercial team & site admin with experience on panel beating are put in charge of claims) and often promoted by the change of title to sweeten the deal at no extra pay.Some contracted HR are terrible and have no sense of managing staff. Most are there for their own benefit. it is a grat place to gain some experience but that is all its good for.
Pros
pay, system
Cons
weak management, untrained and unqualifed staff, no work life balance

Worst work experience ever. Some EGMs are totally unqualified and will do nothing but preserve their position, bring along former mates equally unqualified and make redundant everyone that stand on their way.High turn over of staff and no interest in creating IP = no future for the company
Pros
None that I can think of really
Cons
Bullying, disrespect, no training, staff are disposable

John Holland has no interest in anything or anyone other than its own survival. The senior managers and specifically Alliance/Project Managers quite openly state that there is no such thing as fatigue and will work project employees to excess. Don’t complain or you’ll be removed You can and will be dismissed without notice and they will lie about their reasons for dismissal. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY
Pros
Absolutely none
Cons
Excess unpaid hours. They treat you badly.

I began with John Holland at the beginning of the TSA Alliance with RailCorp. At the time we were learning as the Alliance grew. I enjoyed my time at the Alliance and believe also learned much under the Alliance Manager. My time at TSA was both rewarding and challenging and some of the most engaging of my career.

- Great company to work with as you will have opportunity to grow and enhance your capabilities with involvement on large and complex projects. - I felt that my significant contributions on the Project Team ... may not have been appreciated and recognised.

It’s no surprise that they lose so much money on projects JHG need to divorce themselves from CPB, learn how to price projects and get decent design managers project directors are given too much autonomy that allows them to work on their egos they talk a lot about safety but it’s all talk and pathetic ineffective initiatives the GM for safety has never done anything other than preserve his own position Enter
