The business volume and workforce size is huge and support systems have issues with decision making and tends to be lethargic and prone to red tape beaurocracy. The civil Projects are adversely affected because of building machinery availability in time and procurement and sub contracting has to go thru many loops.
Pros
Great trained workforce . Great goodwill in the market. Visionary leadership. Most Recognised brand.
Cons
Lethargic systems. Pace of automation slow. Large non productive assets.

Job schedule have to submit to Management prior to start the job,
co-ordinate the site team to follow the time line and proper dealing with clients.

daily plan have to submit the allocation of crew at site with behalf of clients by mail.

daily have to attend the site management meeting, client meeting in weekly basis.

to avoid the time delay due to break down of any equipment and to prevent delay of schedule.

we reached 85% of job completion and attending the Punch points.
Pros
Monthly party for achievement.(got continuously)
Cons
PDO announced the shut down to complete the job within 5 days, but its not possible to complete, then we discussed to split two shift crew work day and night work (long hour work in shut down week)
