Fine Company to work for
Bridge Consultant (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, MEOctober 15, 2017
Contech is focused on getting the best out of their employees. My manager was skilled and gave me a lot of autonomy. The culture depends on the office that you work out of. There is certainly a feeling of comradery.

Decent But A Mess

Pros
good pay

bad management

CAD Technician, Precast Engineering (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHSeptember 24, 2017
Working with the Precast Bridge group, I created the contract and fabrication drawings for engineers. I also worked on specialty products. It was easy to get along with almost everyone that worked at the company. The hardest part was getting along with my manager.

Had the material we needed easy to talk to management
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Kemah, TXSeptember 20, 2017

Pros
Management was very understandable if we needed time off for family

Unfortunate Merger with Quikrete
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Arlington, TXAugust 8, 2017
Contech used to be a quality place of employment. However, the recent merger with Quikrete has been a terrible turn of events which puts undue amounts of stress at the plant level with no accountability of upper and executive management to provide any sort of identifiable leadership. Direction is confused and in disarray, with no clear chain of command. Quikrete has no idea what they have purchased in Contech, and will not allow a company that operated well previously continue to operate in that manner. Thus, the application of Quikrete culture and management into Contech has been extremely detrimental to the health of Contech's workforce, with many resignations at mid and upper levels. This is already working to destroy the small teams at plant level as leadership is being replaced with younger, less experienced managers who will have to become "yes" managers.
Pros
Management bonuses, management fleet vehicles
Cons
Undefined leadership and vision, terrible benefits package, corporate culture that refuses inclusiveness

Great Place to Work
Sales (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHJune 27, 2017
New opportunities to learn everyday. Atmosphere and culture are one of a kind. No one office is the same (and on a positive note!) Staff are friendly and always willing to share their expertise. Management is very professional.

Not a healthy environment
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORApril 13, 2017
Typical day is the usual gossip within certain cliques.
Certain "Team Leads" doing the usual gossiping and tattling.
So much more could be done there.
Pros
.25 pop
Cons
Too much gossip - not enough productivity - too much "other" outside activity.

Hard working employees / Poor management
Mill/Press Operator (Current Employee) –  Ankeny, IAApril 3, 2017
Large company with little experience in management. More concerned with image than turning out good product. More concern with big company orders and not local order to the common person.

Steady work.
Utility Operator (Current Employee) –  Winchester, KYApril 2, 2017
It is a steady place to work. You have to be patient if you want full time though. But overall it is an alright place to work at. Hours are not bad if you work certain departments (I.e) tunnel liner. If you want overtime you can defientely get it (I.e) aluminum, galvanized.
Pros
Steady work, set breaks.
Cons
Have to be patient to get full time.

great collaborative environment
Customer Solutions Manager (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHFebruary 22, 2017
This review is based on Contech prior to its acquisition by Quikrete. It was a great place to work. The company cared about its employees. There was a work/life balance. It was a very collaborative environment where departments would work together for the greater good. The only downside was the rate of change. Change was so constant that it created "change fatigue".
