Management at WSP Australia

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

All very good. The only thing would be time allotted for managers to do this is not enough at times.

If you seek a mentor, you will most likely be able to find one however it is best to wait until you meet someone who you think is a good mentor and then ask. If you are really struggling, then ask a senior friend or a manager for a recommendation. I have several unofficial mentors who I feel comfortable to go to for advice.
