Toxic
Commercial Director (Current Employee) –  Melbourne VIC10 October 2018
Overworked and mismanaged staff; if you are French you are valued, otherwise you are treated as a consumable. Politics rule and decisions are made by the French around the coffee machine.
Pros
Central Melbourne
Cons
Not treated as a human being

- Good Engineering Practice
- High respect but not much recognition

- Everyone tends to be a leader on their own accord

No job satisfaction
PROJECT PLANNER (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, Australia3 September 2017
I feel like this role is a glorified data entry role.

I did not gain any job satisfaction during my time in this role.

The work performed was dictated by the Project Managers and no suggestions were really made by the planners. We were purely there to run reports and enter the monthly budget that was given to us.
Pros
Supported staff development
Cons
No job satisfaction
