Construction Intern (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – October 30, 2013
In Gilbane respect is the key to the amazing environment I have experienced. Managers regularly interact with younger engineers to support and add to their knowledge. I think I had a work and life experience in Gilbane in that internship
Work Ethics and Management
Not involved in Infra stucture projects, ex. Bridges
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – July 9, 2018
Challenging work environment. Co-workers were exceptional in talent, professional skills, ethical and extremely dedicated to the mission of completing quality building projects on-time and on-budget, and always to exceed the owners expectations.
Project Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 21, 2018
Company turns work and family life into a enjoyable balance by making all their employees feel the value of family and team work that roots the development of structure into daily life and most well developed environments.
Directed consulting practice in non-traditional line of business
Director of Transition Project Management (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 7, 2018
The company has a strong culture and a long history in the commercial construction industry. The consulting division that I started served to both generate profits and resonate as a marketing differentiator for the sales teams.
The clients that we provided transition planning services for were located throughout the US which meant I had to travel the majority of my time.
If you produce and maintain good client relations you enjoy relative freedom
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Albany, NY – April 24, 2018
The only tools required for this job are a laptop and cellphone. If sitting behind a screen for the majority of the day interest you, this job would is the right one for you. But, if like me, you need to be moving and wearing a tool belt, this side of Construction isn't for you.
The company and employees are amazing people with great goals to achieve the fulfillment of the company. Before working, make sure values you want out of job meet the values you'll receive sitting all day.
Very difficult life to live on the road all the time overseeing projects in numerous New England states.
General Superintendent (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – April 16, 2018
A usual day at work meant you opened the site at 5:30am, had all persons (including subcontractors) sign in at the beginning of the day and signed out at the end of every day. Typical work day was from 5:30 am to 6:00 pm. At all levels, management was very supportive and pro active. We always had a good project team. Very important in order to have a successful project and happy client. I loved working with owners reps and designers. Coming up with solutions to hurdles we encounter on construction projects. I was very proud to receive the Thomas and William Gilbane Award for the Corporate Safety Person of the year for the New England Region.
I worked with a lot of very smart and interesting people.
Due to the financial crash in 2008, I was laid off due to lack of projects.
Intern (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 25, 2018
During my internship I learned a lot about the construction side of commercial development. But with this internship it lacked structure and I did not really have a clear job task when it came to day to day duties.
Gilbane Federal, the subsidiary, is NOT Gilbane quality
UXO Technician (Current Employee) – California – December 25, 2017
At Gilbane Federal, even though you are a full-time employee, you are not eligible for the benefits packages available to Gilbane. There are no health insurance or 401k opportunities, rather a federal fringe amount. After scheduling a corporate meeting to voice concerns and several years with the company, we were given a $20 giftcard as a "thank you." Federal per diem is handled through expense reports on an ever-changing inconsistent schedule. Gilbane Federal refuses to acknowledge that this effects their employees enough to remedy the situation.
lack of benefits, expense reporting, no proper management
Help Desk (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 20, 2017
The work environment at Gilbane is highly competitive due the construction culture. Everyone works very hard but they are very encouraging and communication is one of the best aspects. The communication in the moment of any given project is exceptional. The reward of hard work for this job was constantly recognized and expected.
IT Intern (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – December 18, 2017
The environment here is amazing. The employees are nice and willing to work with me. My manager is nice and knows what he is talking about. It is a medium pace environment. Sometimes its a busy day but other times, its a slow day.
Holiday party, food being provided, engaging conversation with employees
Project Manager 1 (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX / Mexico – December 7, 2017
Gilbane is a very good company as a whole. In my experience the issue is that I haven't gotten the attention some others do which has not helped in my career advancement. What I mean by this is that depends on the manager or direct supervisor you are working for. The company has move me around a lot and its hard to get settle with a family.
Facility Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – November 5, 2017
Gilbane is an awesome place to work if you don't mind traveling. If you choose this as a career you will have to relocate every three to five years and that is a problem for some. I give this place a thumbs up because of the pay and other compensation.
Construction Intern (Current Employee) – Glastonbury, CT – November 1, 2017
A typical work day can either be the same as the one before or different every day. Everyone is helpful and willing to teach you. Gilbane really takes their GilbaneCares approach to every aspect of their business and it shows.
