Day started with all management team having the days prestart an hour before the workers were given theirs in order to deliver the same message across all disciplines, then out to site to oversee the days tasks, coordinate labour, plant and materials for the men, attend daily briefings, to deliver days activities and milestones to management team. Learned some good practises from the daily briefings to carry over to future projects. Senior management were very professional and had time to listen to issues raised by supervision teams and act in a timely manner to address the issues. Very good culture driven by management that flowed down to the workforce. Hardest part of the job was being away from home for 21 days at a time Most enjoyable part was helping deliver a quality project that was extremely difficult in terms of scale and being a one off, where many awards were given for ingenuity, safety and performance
Working for John Holland is a mixed bag, there are some very good upper management people and some not so good. They expect a lot of time to be spent working without getting that work life balance right. Some of the middle management could be more adaptable to change and not use the heavy hand tactics which I have witnessed. Overall 75% of the people are good to work with and take pride in what they do.
Mostly good people to work with.
Lack of support from corperate, Some people within the organization feel that it is acceptable to demoralize others, (Field to corperate)

Good company while they are prosperous. There is a good work life balance and a friendly place to work within a team. Management reasonable and understanding. Enjoyable part of the job is seeing a project through and seeing your design come to fruition. Sadly, permanent or contract, there is no loyalty in business. The HR redeployment team do not offer a great deal of support when finding another position in the company. A common theme here is redundancy.
