Really depends where you are at
Operations (Former Employee), CincinnatiAugust 24, 2014
Pros: company will continue to get work, stability, well respected cm, esop, decent pay, some great people, vehicle, tools provided
Cons: support structure broken, the few bad seeds outweigh the good, disloyalty, meetings to have meetings
Will discuss negatives first covering aspects of operations. You have to know how to play the game, volunteering seems like the right thing to do, but could lead to demise. There are so many good people that work for this company, but it is overshadowed by the few that are considered cancer by some, watching them slip through cracks. The company is – more... very "cliquish", behind your back conversations are constant, good employees have left or been removed due to hidden agendas. People that are loyal sometimes find themselves on the outside looking in and have been replaced. IT issues with their internal construction management system were constant and program changes were frequent, one jobsite could be using one program while another used a different. Review process is laughable, it's only your IDP plan in terms of ink on a piece of paper. It's a safe place to work, but there has been turnover in that department in recent years, changing the guard from those who cared to those who are peaking around every corner. Promotion priorities are granted to those willing to relocate. Lengthy temporary assignments outside your office/region is sometimes only option.

The positives, steady work, high profile projects with higher education institutions, healthcare facilities, and public infrastructure. Turnover in operations is low, the company completes self-performance work for multiple areas, they attract good subcontractors. Most of the senior leaders whether it be regional or corporate level are wonderful, supportive, and allow you to make decisions. You can achieve a work life balance. 100% employee owned ESOP company vested after 3 years. It's a good place to build your career out of college or continue from another company, given the right region, if you are willing to relocate, you will climb the ladder quickly. Compensation raises were consistent. IT is competent and responsive. Labor force brings in quality employees. Good benefits package. Per diem adequate for out of town assignments. – less

Decent benifit package
Lead Carpenter (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INDecember 30, 2013
Pros: retirement package
Cons: lack of management communication, not very good vacation time off, no holiday pay
Although a job with possible potential as an employee it has been my expierience that I have been told only what they think I want to hear and not the truth. To me a company that does that would not be loyal to its employee therefore I find it hard to call it home. The company does not have a handbook for the employee to read so that we are aware of – more... the rules and policies. The company does not have a redily available HR department so it requires contacting at least 3 or 4 people and you are still not sure if what you needed was even taken care of. The company lacks communication from management to the craft force. Some employees are aloud to miss work with no dicipline while others get diciplined. Those that do show up for work have to carry their work load as well as the undependable employees. Some employees are aloud to continually do inferior work then are moved to another job and good quality workers have to do their work as well as fix what was aloud to take place prior. It is a large general contractor which seems to do well but their self performance section needs a serious overhaul by people that have been in the construction business actually working. At this time the most enjoyable part of my job is that my work has been noticed by the company in which we are building a job for and that they have requested me to stay on this job until its coompletion. I enjoy doing my job in a way that the customer actually appreciates and is happy with the product we provide. – less

General Skilled Laborer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OhioJuly 3, 2013
Pros: opportunity to work overtime
Cons: working in the elements
A typical day consists of morning safety and production reviews, prior to pre-shift stretching. I learned basic carpentry skills as well as general house keeping and teamwork on a construction site. My managers were informative and respectful through out my time at Messer. My co-workers were easy to get along with and willing to teach more efficient – more... ways of working. The hardest part of the job for me was working through the elements. The most enjoyable part of my job was to see the progression of the final product everyday. – less
