Overall, enjoyed the work & colleges at Downer. Work in theTechnical services department for Mining Production side, but also work with the Plant / maintenance department in the office & on site. Predominately in the area of GPS, HPGPS systems, data intergration / management, etc....
On average would arrive to set up and do quick stocktake and monitor emails and respond and action. would put in requisitions for stock and get early orders ready for customers to come in and pick up, no waiting. Workplace culture was great.
i have learned a lot of things from the company and from my work mate also,everyday is new day so exited to see my co-workers.the management is very helpful to everybody and if there is a new thing or they going to share to everyone.the hardest part is if your away from family.

Recognition of good work
I worked at DOWNER full-time for more than 1 years Pros - Talented employees - Great potential - Good skills & knowledge Cons - Very biased leadership (Enterprise Technology team and other pockets) - You are either "in the circle" or "out of the circle" - If you didn't play your cards right, you were bound to be targeted - Bringing people back to the business that were never any good
Good place to work with like minded colleagues to ensure wideband activations were supplied for Telstra customers within Telstra benchmarks. I am very familiar with Telstra activation provisioning systems. The work group culture was cooperative and work as a team between the design and construction teams
Downer is the worst thing that can happen to good professional. The IT department is headed with a bunch of morons with no experience and qualifications. The environment is confusing and almost all the projects over run time and costs.
Large and complex organisation
People are treated poorly... no leadership, no clear direction, no training providing or any career development. My manager was good with her spreadsheets, but had absolutely terrible people skills. She wasn’t a good leader and just a terrible manager. The whole team hates her and waiting when she will get another job somewhere else.
A very bad manager
Micro surfacing teams working for downer EDI need to be constantly/regularly tested for other drugs apart from alcohol. Marajauna etc as it is causing division in work teams from melbourne/somerton depo
Pay is good
Poor team morale
-Contrôle de la circulation (informer,assister et sécuriser les automobilistes) -Aménagement des infrastructures terrestres avant travaux sur chantier (Installation des panneaux, balises, cônes de signalisation) -Travaux publics ( entretien, rénovation et construction du réseau routier)
Emploi à l'étranger
60 heures par semaine
Typical rail and construction sites. willing to train and induct workers in areas the downer group are working in. Management are good the only management are the people on site. consistent with standards with the in electrical field. Work with the sites sometimes requires other skills and can be good to with equipment required. Not much mucking around with work all workers are keen to help and aslong as your working the work keeps rolling in.
good team leaders
can b hard to get to at time.
