MY experience with Murray and Roberts was delightfully productive! Developed my character with sense of professionalism, they provided training for our enhancement. The people appreciate the way the company treats its employees, thereby providing a trust-based environment between employer and employee. Being among people who appreciate their employer, we wholeheartedly displayed loyalty to the company that treats its employees right regardless of salary. It is company who discusses to its employees of its status in the market and future plans and upcoming bids makes the people even more enthusiastic to perform better. Also it is a company who truly looks after the interests of it people, salaries never came late and it is even given earlier than usual whenever holidays fall on the regular salary dates.Truly a wonderful experience to work for a prestigious company that treats its people professionally deserves to be supplied with the same level of professionalism and easy to be loyal to.
Pros
Lots of free enhancement training, yearly gathering of employees and business updates
Cons
They will never force you to extend your work hours, but it is hard not to extend hours, even if you don't want to extend. Its a debt of gratitude kind of a thing.

The quality department is supposed to be an independent unit however management would make construction override the QUALITY team and that is why there were always changes made and new managers coming in and going out. I world say management on the project had no clue how run a major project like that. The work packs should be signed off progressively and not at the end of the project

Typical day at work, planning, organizing, scheduling and completion of daily tasks in co-ordination with welding department/metallurgists. Good marriage between management and employees. Workplace was sometimes difficult, because of the fact that we had an open plan office. The most enjoyable part of my job was achieving our goals and zero percent infringement rate.
