My role within the company was hands on which was fantastic, but I was ridiculed for doing my job by managers.
Having worked at Stowe for some 10 years in a stressful position, I took ownership of the role and gave 110% every day. I enjoyed every aspect of my work, but unfortunately was made redundant.
Management did not appreciate a person who carried out their work and was not part of the boys !!
Spent many long hours completing tasks for projects .
Loyalty is non existent and the managers do not care about your health and safety. As long as the job gets done , the $$$ flow , that’s all. Stowe was once a family run business with values but that changed when certain people left. The staff are underpaid and overworked.
Too many to list.
Company as a whole is excellent. The Toowoomba Grand central shopping center construction management have a lot of room for improvement. Unfortunately the project management was not a true example of Stowe which I am assured from my workmates on the site is a progressive and collaborative company.
I worked for Stowe through WorkPac Labour Hire. The job had a good team spirit. As with all job with target dates, ie the opening of the Commonwealth Games, questions were asked by Stowe Management to the Client and delayed answered given. The crew still met the dead line.
Run by some really incompetent managers that have nothing but self interest. There wasn't much to learn with them as they keep you in the dark, except for the select few which are pretty much all related somehow to managers
Working for them
At Stowe, we measure our integrity by the relationships maintained successfully over decades with high profile clients, It’s not just about how viable the relationship is but instead , our workmanship is second to no other company. I am proud to be an integral cog in the Stowe Australia wheel of success . We have been in business for well over 110 years for a good reason.
There is no team work, its every man for him self and its who you know not what you know, and very clicky crowed. Watch your back! There is no proper communications between management and they are very quick to blame others for there mistakes.
A1 Company to work for. Underpinning and driving the success of the company over this time are two fundamental business objectives: “To build and maintain a satisfied customer base through superior quality service with fair dealings based on trust and respect.” “To create long term relationships with customers, suppliers and most importantly its employees.”
the vast majority of the people I worked for and with were really enjoyable/organised to work with. Which made my many years at Stowe very enjoyable.
The worst project manager ever. When you have to beg for material to do your job and get nothing, you know things are bad. Tasks were taking way longer than they should because the lack of gear, they couldn't even supply fixings or screws, we needed to ask other trades or find them on the floor. If you couldn't find the gear you are then instructed to steal gear from other trades to finish the job. Corners cut ever day, using gear that was not suitable for the job because it was onsite ( either Stowes or another trades) not a professional finish to a very large comms project.
