As a Manager at Groundworks it is exciting to see the growth and expansion of the company. People who are willing to provide good work and support for their internal and external customers thrive. The ability to advance and learn is there for anyone who puts forth effort. The company culture tends to be one of team spirit. Most team members face their day with "we can do it" and "how can I help you" attitudes. The best part of this company is that the people who want to excel can and do!

You get to know everyone and everyone looks out for one another. The management is very helpful if you need help with anything and they're always looking to give someone a promotion. Real sensible guys
Pros
Pay, bonuses, promotions

I liked the job overall. Unfortunately, due to too many workers, I ended up getting layed off a lot. I usually worked 2 to 3 days out of the week and got low pay checks.
Pros
Water when you need it
Cons
Short breaks

This place is always hiring for a reason. TOXIC work enviorment. Does not value its people. Do your self a favor and stay far away. Looks like a great opportunity at first but things are not how they appeared.
Pros
Cant think of any.

Toxic enviorment, poor pay, poor management

Well if you like working 100-120 hours a week for minimal pay, while being constantly bombarded with unrealistic expectations from an out of touch management team, thennn you’re gonna love this place. I performed above and beyond for months on a promise for a promotion, aaand they fired me on hear-say. Facts: Foundation work does NOT pay well, is physically draining, and rewards those who organize the monkeys (laborers) most efficiently. My advice? Find another trade, save your back, make more money.
Pros
Thanks for the tshirts, excellent fit
Cons
Yes, all of them

If you want back breaking work down in the trenches. Literally hand digging trenches and holes for $14 an hour then this is you. Management smiles in your face and tells you all you want to hear to keep you moving. No appreciation. No regard for your safety. OSHA would have nightmares with some things these people pull. Not to mention if you get hurt might as well say goodbye. They will find a reason to get rid of you. And watch out for the brown nosing. You will find out your first day who does the kissing. Think long and hard about working for a corporate monster like this. Glad to help....

It all depends on your title on whether your job is enjoyable or not. •Cfi’s (sales) are treated like gods •Foreman and installers work like dogs •Superintendents are used as service techs instead of supervising their crews to ensure great, quality work. •Service techs have little to no supervision •New Upper Management is hard to get to help with day to day operations but when they’re available they’re great. •The current “office manager” is incompetent. She pawns her duties off on the admins, avoids the phones (especially when it’s an irate customer), won’t help in other ‘departments’ with simple tasks, she’s more worried about being called the office manager than actually doing what an office manager should. No matter what your title is, you’ll work long hours. Most go home to have work follow them there (That’s not recognized by management, you won’t be compensated for it, you won’t even get a thank you for handling something before it could escalate). The turn over rate of employees is unbelievably high. Only benefit was the friends made along the way

Typical work day varied depending on appointment, this is really a self motivating position, the company relied on you doing your appointments and finishing your work off site or home in proper time. Company provided training and all the tools to be successful, but again most success depended on the employee finishing thier work independently.

I enjoyed working at Groundworks. it is growing at a rapid rate due to acquisitions. At times, the growth felt out of control. Groundworks really does great things for it's employees.

Managment could definitely be better, they care more for the customer than they do employees. They treat workers in the field bad. Everything is a excuse for the workers. Pay ain't great. NOT A JOB FOR YOU TO SUPPORT A FAMILY. They will lie to you so you'll be happy. Not a job for a career.... overall horrible company. With a Rich boss who's pushy and doesn't care for employees. General manager and production manager are the worse people to be hired for this company. Hood like envirmont which explains the bad pay and bad attitude to employees. Very high turnover rate. No room to move up unless you know someone in upper management. This is a start up job to get you going for something better than this job.

The owner and the manager of this company was very unprofessional and didn't like to pay their employees. I don't have anything else that I would like to say about this company.

Family owned and operated company that treats you like family. Great management all the way to the top. There is a mutual respect and true understanding that your success is their success.

Great place to work for motivated professionals looking to be directly rewarded for their hard work. Team / helping atmosphere. Ongoing training and support. Lots of room for advancement with hardwork and dedication to continued growth and improvement. Wouldn't work anywhere else.

No processes and procedures in place. Employees fired every other day! No control over your job as other responsibilities from fired employees are heaped onto you. Lack of communication! 18 years of backlogged problems that you are expected to reconcile, but they refuse your solutions! Very poor management with no forethought! Do not plan to work here. It’s a slave galley with no office space or proper tools to accomplish what they demand!

They are terrible do not work for them!!! They have no idea what they are doing. Management is terrible and tells you nothing but lies. They still owe me $1800 from jobs I sold. So if you like working for nothing they are a great choice.

Not enough time in the day
