I was employed on a construction site, the site management was very well managed. Our site project manager was very professional and very supportive of the employees working for him. The working environment I would describe as being pleasant and informative, bearing in mind the conflict of interests, of the the various project employee functions. Generally the project management team and the main site contractor had a good working relationship, which resulted in a good client relationship, and a successful project

Good company to work for.
Opportunity to interact with contractors, suppliers and colleagues.

Big plus is the opportunity to improve management and social skills, which are underestimated; compared to discipline skills. Project managers are great at mentoring and advising fellow workers.
Pros
Mangement and social skills improvement
Cons
Company is dealing with tough clients

Mott MacDonald was an excellent company with Global outreach. I learnt how to manage projects, the working staff was diverse, and there was continuous internal training programs. The only problem was looming retrenchments every year in the later years of my stay there. This made the working environment very insecure.
Pros
Very cordial and friendly working atmosphere
Cons
Looming retrenchments

last year January 2016, I was appointed to do some raft design
of low housing in chatty 1060 (number of the 1060 units). they were 4 different houses. My line Manager gave me the responsibility of the job from the Design of the work in office up to the inspection of reinforcement steel on site, which was a very challenging work, as to all 23 Small SME constructors were unable to prepare reinforcement. but I showed them how to fix reinforcement steel, and how to read drawings. eventually I was appointed as clerk of works/ inspector of the project, that includes of inspection of the complete work from the raft foundation up to the completion of the house. During this project I learned how to handle contractors especially during our weekly technical meetings , and advising beneficiaries, presenting progress of the work on site to the client, challenges meet on site i.e ( missing connections of drainage, bursting of water pipes etc).

My co-workers were impressed with the work I did, and am profound of the it, I manage to supervise project and complete it within the speculated time.
Pros
