    Over processed People block you from performing Boys club mentality amoungst older staff Employees dont embrace change well Pushback from other divisions Lack of support Alot of redundancies annually Silo operation Poor communication from senior management No accountability No collaboration Constant cosst cutting leaves gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate better with all levels of employees regardless of status. Remove Silo operating and allign kpi's so that divisions are working together to achieve the same result. Really believe company objective and try and make it a positive experience for your customers to deal with Boral.

    I worked at Boral full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy schedule to work around. Decent pay coming in. Looks really good from afar. Good for younger worker starting out.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Management and higher up are reactive not proactive. Company quick to make quick/rash decisions. Operating procedures not enforced for salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more information, education, and advice to employees. Offer pay increases to match cost of living increases and individual worker output. Also communicate with all employees to expedite day to day work. Actually enforce quality control procedures to save business.
