Still growing
Plumber Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDJuly 7, 2017
S & D is a company that's still growing in the DC metro area. With Virginia and Washington, D.C. going through a growth phase, Shapiro and Duncan have what it takes to share the volume. There's a bunch of good, knowledgeable people to work with, and all seem to love what they do.

The downside is that they don't offer sick days, and the health insurance premiums are a little high, but not too bad.

A Great Company With Potential
Plumbing Leadman (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDApril 20, 2016
Everyone from the top down is on the same page on every project concerning budget and production. Continuing education is pushed and encouraged with a whopping $6k available to every employee to use per year for just that! The owners of the company will come out to the jobsites to shake hands, talk to the men, and host different parties and conventions for everyone in the company.
They have moved up quickly in the big leagues in regards to company size which match the bigger projects they have been awarded. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I enjoyed working with everyone and everyone I have worked with here had a great attitude towards the company and life in general.
Pros
Parties, Conventions, Education

Great people, you are part of the team.
Information Technology Manager (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MD.July 23, 2015
Even though there are very different working parts, and sometimes you don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, this company makes sure they bring you along. There are ups and downs in many departments, but all in all, this is a fun place and great owners to work for.
Pros
You are part of a team, great fun culture, and you will usually be properly compensated.
Cons
There is some nepotism, and you're going to have to accept that.

Very Productive and steady workplace
Apprentice Plumber (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 6, 2015
Everyday is planned according to the job status. Much to learn and a lot of positive people to be around. The hardest part of the job is the early mornings but once used to it, it becomes at natural habit. The most enjoyable of course would be the weekly compensations on Friday.
Pros
flexibilty
Cons

Alright Company, not really any perks

Mechanical Contractor (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDOctober 17, 2013
S&D has been the top mechanical contractor in the MD/DC/VA area for many years. But personally, the management and project management teams are the main reason why S&D is #1 in their field. They treat every employee as family, never hesitating to assist in their job or personal problems. They give you the tools to make yourself a better person and employee, including but not limited to education, training, etc.
