  • The opportunities awarded to graduates goes above and beyond anything I thought it would be.

Career Prospects
I believe from graduate to engineer can be challenging from what I have heard from people in that area as well as the requirements to be promoted. However, I have also heard that by being charted it will definitely help and allow this to happen faster

Corporate Social Responsibility
We have a great wealth of skills and knowledge in our company and could be putting it to better and skilled uses. Instead we do token charity type work which is good, but any unskilled person can do. However, we could be making a greater impact based on the skills of our people.

Office is on Southbank overlooking the Yarra, it is a great location. Site offices as can be expected are not as great however the head office is and will always be less than 400m from a train station as stated in our contracts. In comparison to most offices I have visited ours would definitely be ranked near if not number 1

We have a training budget however it is like trying to get blood from a stone which is disappointing. I know in other teams this is not the case and if they ask for training it is not to hard to get approval
