Reviews by Lendlease graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar3.9GradAustralia surveyed 51 graduates working at Lendlease. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 51 responses.
- Working with passionate people who want to shape Australia for the better
- The encourage diversity, in people, in thought and in ideas. They have a huge focus on delivering the biggest and best projects and are genuine in their ambitions.
- Scope of project types company involved in, allowing me to gain experience/exposure to many different areas of construction and maintenance
- The opportunities it provides to work on projects no other company is. Work/life is fairly balanced and actively encouraged in my current team.
- Diversity and development
- Working in a big company there are at times lots of red tape to cut through before achieving results or getting approvals
- Heavily project based, with very internalised operations (not much communication between projects)
- The bureaucracy of big business. Obtaining approvals for relatively small sums/engagements is tedious.
- Difficulty maintaining a work/life balance
- Development courses outside of the day to day roles could be made more frequent and allow for more opportunities to work with graduates outside of my stream.
What insiders say about…
My work mainly involves doing the financial accounting for our property development projects throughout Australia. That includes; posting journals, raising billing events, advising finance managers, project creation, maintenance and closure.
Everyone gets along really well in our team but the company is too big and Newcastle to far removed from Sydney to feel any company culture.
I was a part of a second intake for the year because they suddenly had a whole bunch of spots open up. The process only involved the online questionnaire, a quick chat over the phone and a single face-to-face interview with two of the people leaders here. They were friendly and easy to talk to.
I was asked things like "do you know what the position involves?", "where would you like to be in the future/ 5 years?", "why have you decided not to do architecture?" "How do you manage all the extra curricular with uni and work?" But mostly we just had a conversation. They threw a couple of curveball questions in at the end like "can you recall a time when you had a to make a quick decision?" but I think by that stage of the interview they had already decided they were keen to hire me so even though I may not have answered those ones that well, there wasn't so much pressure. They also got us to watch a couple of training videos and asked me what I thought about the company's diversity policy (i.e. men and women, different trade backgrounds, experiences, etc)
Just relax. They're friendly here and if you've made it to the interview, it's because they're satisfied with what they've read in your questionnaires and seen on your resume. They want to know if you have a personality. So have a conversation with them, keep it light, make a joke - just don't think too much and act like they're just people (because they are!).. Get on the website, learn about the company. Read about the company values and what's important to them and it should be pretty obvious what they're looking for in those questionnaire responses - it's not about grades and work experience as much as it is about making it clear you like to try new things, that you have a good work-life balance (extracurricular activities), what do you enjoy besides work, and how you fit in with their values
I work from 7-7. Previously I've worked every day in the month on average 12/13 hours per day.
I am very happy with my graduate salary. As I have only been with the company less than a year, I have not received a bonus
The best perks at Lendlease is the Wellbeing Day and the Stella Points
Good communication and support
Comprehensive training program and lots of on the job training
As a grad, they have made it difficult to progress to site engineer. I have worked with graduates who are more than ready for a promotion and are held back by the grad program. In my experience, I have felt trapped by the Lendlease graduate program.
We have received training regarding cultural awareness. There is also more women being hired. Generally ethnic minorities are somewhat represented but they are still largely outweighed by the majority male white society. LGBT is not discussed often but it is acceptedJoin us to bookmark!
