The worst employer I have ever had in 35 years!!!
Manager (Former Employee) –  Manus IslandNovember 16, 2017
This company has cut corners in every area of the operations on Manus Island to suck every last cent out of the Australian Tax payer. Promotions and management jobs of people who are far less qualified and experienced than other staff but will put up with and assist in the cover up of poor and corrupt practice. Immigration Australia should Audit all qualifications and appointment of all staff in all areas particularly Management roles. Merit based appointments is rubbish. Australian Tax Payers should get their money back!!!!
Senior management staff frequently drinking and two in particular torturing animals, this was reported and deliberately covered up and not actioned by HR Manager to protect these staff because these staff did not rock the boat.
Several deaths of Asylum Seekers there were 100% preventable and if BRS was doing their job by employing and promoting the correct people which actual expertise in their fields some of these deaths could have been avoided.
Information systems have been tampered with in terms of data entry, reporting and changing of case notes and processes, all you need to do is go in the back door to see when information was inputted or changed.
Appalling organisation and management, Do Not employ people in Management from this project particularly any HR staff.
Pros
3 week on 3 weeks off
Cons
Everything About the Manus Island Management - Particularly the HR

Fast-paced work culture with opportunity for promotion.
Safety Attendant, Mechanic Helper, Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Carson, CAOctober 23, 2017
Safety Culture is a major part of working here. Their core values set them apart from most other businesses within the same industry. Promotion is based off of hard work and dedication. The long hours are not for everyone, but are necessary if you want to work for them. The most difficult part of the job will be your first day. After settling in to the hustle and bustle, it becomes like a second home. As long as you work hard and go the extra mile, the possibilities are endless.
Pros
Plenty of work hours, benefits.
Cons
Away from family costantly.
