Change is very slow and difficult
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Watsonville, CAApril 23, 2017
Change is slow and the culture makes it hard to get anything meaningful accomplished. Business units are disjointed. There are many good people there, but overall the culture is negative.

I really enjoyed this company the people that I met and worked beside on a daily basis was awesome. I learned a lot from while at this company but it's also a tough job working on a highway with traffic flying by you at all times of day or night
Pros
Awesome Supervisor
Cons
Upper Management

death by a million wounds
Engineer (Current Employee) –  NevadaMarch 22, 2017
It's the McDonalds of construction companies. Nice office, trucks, equipment, financially stable. Pay scale is generally below average. Company is run by frat boys from top to bottom. There is a distinct lack of diversity. Have seen new employees, who didn't fit into the fraternity, quit their first day. Managers are poor communicators and do not help propel careers forward well. Human resources department operates like the central intelligence agency. Better company for single younger employees to learn. Difficult place to work for more experienced employees with families. If they don't like you they will literally ignore an employee until they resign.
Pros
Provides good tools / equipment
Cons
sink or swim mentality, poor, manipulative management

Watch Your Back
Project Management (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaFebruary 28, 2017
Granite claims to be a very employee friendly company; however, all that upper management really cares about is pleasing their stock holders. They will do anything to their employees to make their financials look good. Watch out for surprises, because they will happen.
Pros
Safety Program
Cons

Don't expect to have much summer
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKNovember 29, 2016
During the summer the work picks up to massive amounts of hours 70 plus depending on the positions. They expect you to work 70 hour plus weeks all summer long which is good on the paycheck but stressful at times.
Pros
All the hours you want.
Cons
Strenuous hours

Just fine
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTNovember 2, 2016
The days were long and grueling. I do understand that I got this job through a friend and I was the only person under 25. My co-workers didn't think i could handle much of the manual labor.

PROJECT ENGINEER INTERN (Former Employee) –  Indio, CANovember 1, 2016
Great culture to work. you should be able to be a good team player. They look for people who fit into the culture, not in the project. Thier strong culture is their way of work.
