A good company

If you work hard and put in the effort, then you will be rewarded. Salaries are not the best but there are good benefits and a good company culture. Worked here 4 years and I would work here again in the future if given the opportunity.

Good place to work at to upskill and get ahead in your career

Typical day of work to show up motivated and ready to work, learnt everything I needed to know about project management. Management can treat everyone like robots communicating through emails and other people. There was a blue blood initiative which really brings everyone together. The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of something big.

Pros

being part of a range of civil projects

Cons

Management communicate through emails and other people instead of foot and mouth

Generally Average Civil Engineering Company.

My experience with Fulton Hogan in the early 2000s might be colored by the company's performance and my particular department at the time so please bear that in mind. Fulton Hogan (FH) is an NZ wide civil construction company with a quite solid reputation in the field. Not a huge player in Auckland, they nevertheless did much work in the infrastructure of the city and maintained a good standard of work. The laboratory arm where I worked ( Testing and QA/QC focused ) was busy and a good workplace. Despite the industry tendency to consider this part of the operation rater an afterthought, the FH lab staff received respect and accolades when performance was well above requirements. However, during my period of work, the culture in the management of the laboratory was not conducive to promotion or retraining - if you showed a talent for a particular segment of the work, that work was all you did, and you were rarely if ever asked to retrain or advance into other capacities. Staffing was often cut to a minimum, especially when a night shift was required and therefore the fewer staff in day shift where expected to perform at a level of a larger team with less resources of time and manpower. However, night shift workers did enjoy a large weekly bonus for that work, and competition was fierce for such positions. Workdays were a minimum of 8.5 hours for a five day week, and weekend work was quite infrequent ( Again, a bonus was paid for weekend work in the laboratory and the position on the roster was strongly contested ). The social and cultural atmosphere of the company was - 

Pros

Good remuneration, bonus schemes, great social culture.

Cons

Very long hours, little opportunity for advancement, an external cleint-minded management.

Family Orientated, caring.

Typical day of work varied from dig outs, to potholes, road maintenance. I learned quite a lot working with Fulton Hogan to do with the road environment. The management do their best to make sure that all daily jobs are completed in a proper time frame. The workplace culture at Fulton Hogan is family orientated and safety orientated as well to make sure that we are healthy and able to work well. There are various aspects of the job that are difficult due to unforeseen circumstances and weather etc. The most enjoyable part of working for Fulton Hogan was my work colleagues and the the work friendly environment at the work place.

Fantastic company to work for with strong managers and a good workplace culture. Spent days managing the site operations and was given a long tether to work but had good support when required.

Productive and knowledgeable place

Everyday you meet a lot of people on the site and everyone is really friendly and helpful in your tasks. It's a really good work place for person who doesn't want to sit at one place the whole day. Hardest part is the weather conditions. Most enjoyable part is friendly nature of people and to work with them.

Fun work

- Every morning you'd have to be highly motivated. - You learn how new things every now and then - managing to finishing a task you set can be difficult sometimes when you have unexpected barrier in the road - working alongside a bunch of good co-workers is always the best. - The hardest part of the job, I'd say is trying to complete a set goal. - But the most enjoyable part of the job, I'd say is heads down work completing a job in the time given.

Pros

When our project manager shouts lunch

Cons

Long hours

It is a great place for the interim, and to help them out while they needed another staff member

The day would start at 6.30 and I would have particular sandwiches, rolls and sweet buns to make up, general food assistance. I learnt a lot about speed and accuracy in my job, and the Management was lovely and very supportive. My Co-workers fantastic and helpful, the hardest part was trying not to eat the tasty food, and the most enjoyable was seeing people resting and relaxing in the cafe and the organised way of doing things there was well structured.

Pros

Free meal on break

Cons

The job was only Casual
