Great opportunity for autonomy

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
High safety compliance that sets up the company to operate in various contracts with clients of different levels and systems. There was a family feel to the projects and the socialising was valuable.

Worst work culture ever

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

Ok to gain some experince

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

Do not work for John Holland... EVER!!!!

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.

Good company to work for

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.

Recent organisational changes may have affected the team moral.

- 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.
