Corporate Social Responsibility
What Graduates Say About Them
  • The culture and everyone here are so supportive. Managers consistently encourage employees to take personal leave when going through stressful situations (eg. death in the family, relationship breakdown, burnout). People are approachable and much more willing to provide advice/help than I am used to. There is also a clear effort to build personal relationships despite being a large company, through regular optional social events and a culture of checking in socially
  • The culture here, everyone is nice and welcoming no matter what office you visit. They are flexible with work hours and care about you as a person. You get a day off on your birthday
  • I feel like the workplace cares for and belongs to me
  • Provide graduates with lots of learning opportunities, and knowledge transfer opportunities
  • I feel like the grad program component wasn't as relevant to my role as it could have been, I think this is because all grads regardless of whether they are engineers, architects, or accountants complete the same grad program content. I have learned heaps about my role from the people in my team and content for geotechnics outside of the grad program though
  • If you don't have a strong work ethic it's easy to slack off or not get given work
  • When there isn't a lot of project work available to work on
  • The company structure is sometimes too liberal and DIY, meaning direction, feedback, and management are hard to find for an early career professional
