    I have been working at Fletcher Building full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees passionate people. Starting to understand the power of divisions working together, collaborating with each
    The pay well.

    Cons

    The current culture is very poor. Middle management working long hours, the CE's don't seem to be too concerned. If you have lemons, allow management to move them on. The CEO hasn't quite understood the value of teamwork, 99% of his speeches is about what you (the employee) can do for him. Went through a downsizing last year and has gone too lean - being run by accountants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to what's been said in the employee surveys and make the needed HR investments., invest in quality employees.

    Pros

    Great opportunities in terms of education and support, not only for staff but their dependents as well.

    Cons

    Divisions are quite separate - not much room for work between them, quite inefficient

    I have been working at Fletcher Building

    Pros

    Largest construction company in New Zealand provides access to some of the most interesting projects around. The Fletcher empire has everything you might need here in construction. Because of its size, its a great place to exist as an Engineer if you are average in abilities and ambition. Promotion will come with time served.

    There are also some great people to work with and good managers. It can just be hit and miss.

    Cons

    Being the largest construction company in New Zealand and encumbant firm. The company's rhetoric and literature is of ingenuity, adaptability and continual progress. The reality is often quite different - and is entrenched all the way up to senior management. Being the largest firm with access to resources no other firm in New Zealand has, Fletcher Building relies on its size. In any other larger and more developed country it would not survive as it currently does or be the firm of choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the huge range of skills and abilities that Fletcher has in it's people, particularly Engineers and skilled tradesmen - ingenuity and performance should be better valued. New Zealand and Fletcher's wonder why so many are crossing the ditch. A lot of the answer lies at home.
