Stuck in the 19th Century

Was contracted through GHD to Main roads.Total waste of time. Lack of resources to fulfill the role properly.No real understanding by Main roads of how the construction industry works as most long term employees have been there for over 25 years and dont know anything else.Some good people , but trying to get improvements is a brick wall.They need to step into this century and realise there are better ways and more efficient ways of getting things done

Pros

Always food supplied at training sessions

Cons

Efficiency and Upgrades

High expectations from management

The management had high expectations of employee participation and output on a daily basis. Targets normally achievable, but flexibility was required some afternoons to complete required tasks.

Great place to learn

I was only there for a short time but it appeared that the majority of staff were happy and the learning opportunities were abundant. I found the opportunity fulfilling and enjoyable.
