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
