Just another EPCM company but stuck in a 1980s time warp with out dated technology and very conservative approach to new ideas.
Very tight clique of long term employees that try to keep new hires out of the inner circle.

Payroll serviced by Labour Broker in Melbourne who has a reputation for dodgy practices especially late payments

Still a bit better than Ausenco but thats not saying much.
Pros
Quiet office location
Cons
Not a friendly workplace. Payroll contractor unreliable payment. Out of date IT systems

Very behind the times and backwards business. Toxic culture, sweeping bad behaviour under the rug. Treats 50% of employees as disposable once they’ve completed a project but if more work comes up, expects the people they let go to be ready and available to come back, vicious cycle, but has a gross surplus of project managers without having projects to manage. Wouldn’t work there again and wouldn’t recommend any major players utilise them for their projects.
Pros
Minimum full time hours
Cons
Toxic management, workplace bullying and intimidation, office location, no noteworthy projects, huge staff turnaround

Once the project is over you very quickly discarded despite having another project coming up.Project Managers do not communicate about other projects for staff and in fact, some do not even realize you are available. I have done seven Projects with them. Overall the Senior management is a good bunch of blokes.
Despite my criticism, I would work for them again.
Pros
Overall Good Management
Cons
Purple circle

The site team were a close knit squad. Dealing with the SMP contractor was easy and flowed well, daily issued were dealt with at our level and management never really needed to be involved. The project involved merger with brown and green fields, the client group resisted at first but then realised we were not a threat and soon become in alliance with us, the project finished well and on time , Really enjoyed it
Pros
Good Management and leadership
Cons
project was short

Living and working on a site based project is always full of new challenges, heaps going on, and always trying to achieve positive outcomes.
Working with a wide range of skilled people encourages and develops your own skill base as well as assisting others to look forward to working better in their own team environment.

Assistance is always available when you need help with certain management decisions.

I enjoy the interaction that is the key factor to a site placement, and the most hardest part is not completing a task by the end of the day, due to the work load being so demanding. but in the end it all seems to get done,

I pride myself in working in a site position due to the variation of work required to complete the daily requests and requirements of the job.. I Love it.
Pros
Good team to work and extremely supportive, as they are our family away from home
Cons
Material teams are always isolated from the construction side of the project, but with out this team, things would not as run smooth.

Head-hunted and brought to Perth on a 457 visa, fully sponsored. Just a terrible pity that I had to return to South Africa as a result of restructuring of the company due to the global financial crisis. I would return in a heartbeat if I was given the chance!!
Pros
laid-back approach to work; excellent directors and managers, very simpatico.
Cons
none.
