Construction Project Manager (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – November 26, 2018
Found MasTec to be a very disappointing work environment with little or no guidance or assistance from the available management chains. Where the culture did provide lots of online training for meeting company safety and Human Relations regulation conformance, the company offered little or no training both onsite or offsite that would help me grow my experience base and / or career goals. I left Mastec with enormous respect and appreciation for my co-workers with whom I worked in the field. They were second to none. My Management was another story. They were basically not willing to grant us any assistance or guidance on our projects. We were expected to understand and operate all corporate and customer software programs without formal training unless the customer was displeased with our performance and only then would we receive "remedial" training. We never really prepared for upcoming project design changes or schedule changes. The environment was completely reactionary when we should have been spending more of our considerable resources on planning and education in order to better manage a dynamic and challenging work environment. Finally, employment security is mainly "project based" and our job security was sketchy at best.
Good benefits and support of field travel and operations.
Project Based job security with no planned "Off Project" work available. Layoffs are common.
Business Services Technician (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – October 8, 2018
The work enviornment is very fast paced at times, good technicians are paid well, it's piece work so the kore you do the more you're paid. Overall very satisfying customer service experience. At&t has made it somewhat difficult to make a good career from being a technician due to the pictures you have to take and all of the corporate guidelines you must follow. Every little bit more time on a job you have to take adds up to less pay over the course of a year.
Senior Construction Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – October 5, 2018
Great company to work for. They really do promote a positive culture for employees and for customers alike. The insurance, company truck, company cell, laptop, credit card, etc..is a fantastic benefit that many companies don't even offer anymore.
Excellent work life balance. Flexible remote work policy.
Sr. Operations Manager IT and Warehousing (Former Employee) – Columbia, MD – August 31, 2018
Telephone and online activity. Improved project and program management skills.
Diverse and open workplace culture Hardest part of the job was maitaining mission clarity because the organization was in the process of acquiring assets with different skill sets and core competencies. The most enjoyable part was the operational autonomy and the work life balance.
Construction Manager (Former Employee) – North Florida – August 28, 2018
Typical day was @16-18 hours with 15-20 sites in construction simultaneously. market coverage for the project was from Melbourne FL to Daytona, Orlando FL to Clearwater and Tampa FL to Ocala FL and everywhere in between.
After the mandatory site visits to the sites in construction you started your second shift of reporting for all your sub's, site audit reviews and punch requirements to close-out the sites working well into the night and morning.
600+ sites in just over 2 years with CD, ZD reviews of NSB on top of close-out and multiple site audits was a daunting task to say the least. The initial North Florida LTE 4G ended up launching before the anticipated launch date and was a great since of accomplishment.
Mastec has a very relaxed atmosphere. Executive Leaders are very visible and invite dialogue. I learned that being proactive and self managed was an asset. The hardest part of the job was the fast paced environment and the tendency for constant changes. This also served to be one of the most enjoyable aspects. Knowing that you have accomplished a goal when time constraints were the major challenge.
Construction Manager Gulf coast region (Current Employee) – Florida – August 12, 2018
In the morning go over emails from the day, and any left from previuos evening. Meet up with GC'c at various site to make sure everything is good, perform safety audit on the crew. Order any missing materials that the crew did not receive during pickup. Verify with crew a completion date for the site.
Great company to work if you have the right manager
some managers are micro managers, unfairly treat others
