Commercial / Contractual role more focused on cash flow analysis and forecasting

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Common feedback amongst peers & my personal experience includes: Commercial / Contractual role was more focused on cash flow analysis and forecasting rather than a more traditional role. High-intensity workload including 6 to 7 days a week up to 6 months straight before departing. Could be regarded as a top-heavy organisational structure.

High stress, high tempo, but more than fairly compensated by good management

I worked for Lendlease across multiple projects and found that the tempo and pace of work was often grueling when project deadlines needed to be met, but this was more than fairly compensated and addressed by management. From flexible hours to comp paid days, if you worked your tail off trying to deliver something, my experience with management was that they would see you had time to rest and recover. There was a constant push to take advantage of alternative compensation options such as lendlease paying to send you to certification or training courses. Their leave policy on the projects I worked was "please don't screw us over if we need you, but you don't really request days, you inform us when you're not available and we adapt." That was definitely an eye opening and pleasant way to look at PTO.All in all, I would highly recommend Lendlease, but state that your management experience will depend on the project you're attached to. While corporate level policies are excellent and the pay and alternative compensation is outstanding, you still have to consider each project you're hiring onto individually.

Pros

Good pay, training compensation, advancement opportunities, and benefits

Cons

Long hours

Good bunch of workers on the floor, who supported each other

Management not involved with workshop staff, not safety oriented just get the job done kinda approach. Job Work/Life Balance: Good Salary/Benefits: Good, I would say above average Job Security/Advancement: ZeroManagement: Working at Lendlease I felt like it's not what you know but it's who you know. Employees moral was very low due to management's attitude towards them.

Pros

Rdo

Cons

it's not what you know but it's who you know.

Management who carry out illegal covert surveillance on staff. Non stop bullying, management only care about themselves.

Do not work for lendlease, you will be spoken down at, looked down at, and become demoralized. Disgusting behavior from management, making staff & contractors carry out unsafe work practices, also breaking work place law by forcing staff to work without lights to save money & make management look good. Do yourself a favor & stay away.

Pros

going home

Cons

too much to list

I enjoyed working with a large contraction site office

I was with the project team from the commencement of the projects to the finalisation of the projects. The hrs works were Monday to Friday from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm and if required on a Saturday. My position was their HR Officer/Payroll Officer, their project's meeting minute taker, purchasing officer, and document controller. I enjoyed working on these projects are the variety of work and the interaction with the whole project team which included Clients, Contractors, Sub-Contractor and the whole of the project team.

Productive with great people

Culture is good and flexible when need to be. Lendlease are willing to train their staff in relevant areas of work. Management listen to ideas and safety is definitely a high priority.

No loyalty

Overall Lendlease was a great company to work for with great friendships formed but when you’re no longer valuable they’ll find a way to get rid of you.
