Supportive, career centric environment with path to promotion
Project Manager I (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – September 6, 2018
The people of Gilbane truly follow the company's mission statement, and reward personnel for exhibiting behaviors in line with that doctrine to positively reinforce the culture of providing ethical, safety oriented execution of client objectives within budget and schedule parameters. They have a mandatory learning requirement each year, and have outlined both the internal education requirements and on site experience each person should have to be promoted. They Senior PMs, Direct Managers, and Project Executives all help streamline your experience and tasks in accordance with your stated work goals so you don't stagnate. You are always leaning, always improving, and every person's suggestions for improving the ways they efficiently and effectively do business are welcome. Overall it's an awesome family oriented company and they have very little turnover assuming the area/region has further work when your project ends, and even then relocation is always an option. Many people have 20+ years under their belts, which isn't always possible in the construction industry, it shows a definite desire and policy of retaining talent and promotion from within.

Layoffs if you are in a slow region unless willing to relocate
