Safety Professional
Health, Safety, and Environment Supervisor (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CAFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: employees were great
Cons: accountability at all levels
I was assigned to many projects, the last in Inglewood, California on an oil & gas lease. The hardest part was leaving. The best part was working with great employees in the field.

Benefits are great and that's about it
Estimator/Scheduler (Current Employee), Atlanta, GADecember 10, 2013
Pros: good insurance
Cons: long hours and bad management
Great insurance and that's about it.

Forget about having a life. You are told how to dress, how to act , who to vote for and who to give your money to.

Management, you can't call them that. IF you aren't in their club forget it. Also they shoot the messenger.

Stocks are offered , but it feels like a Ponzi Scheme.

Estimators and Schedulers are ground – more... up like hamburger, while everyone else waits for the next big to come. It never comes.

Expect long hours and traveling on your own time, and nickeled and dimed on your expense report.

You work 10 hours and are paid for 8.

You get vacation time , but are shamed when you take it and you can't roll it year to year. – less

safety coordinator (Former Employee), Port Arthur, TXMay 8, 2012
i had high hopes of working for this company, but i learned that it was a family affair. most of the god jobs were filled with upper management relatives. if you were not related to someone in upper management you were first on the lay off list.

It was a good place to work with lots of diverse projects
Welder (Former Employee), Kearl Lake, ABJuly 30, 2014
Pros: well organized and tidy job
Cons: jobsite congestion
-starts with morning debriefing and exercises
- you learn you have to make effort to get along with people
despite all
-management is no problem what so ever I found
-my co-workers were composite of mostly permit hands and a few
union hands from across Canada
-the most difficult thing was working in a highly congested area
-being part of a large project – more... and watching it come together – less
