Lab Coordinator in Colorado
Great stepping stone company for anyone new to construction looking for experience and certifications for resume building. You will have to bear poor management, poor communication, "trial by fire" growth, non-transparent expectations, and harsh criticism when missing those expectations if entry-level career experience is what you seek. I would not recommend this company to anyone with over two years of experience.
Architectural Historian in Lawrenceville, GA
You are paid for 40/week, but are automatically expected to work at minimum 50-55, usually working close to 60. Training is nonexistent, including any opportunity to be trained for promotional opportunities. Performance expectations are far beyond an employee's ability, with the inability to meet expectations used as a disciplinary tactic. The health benefits are expensive yet mediocre, while the retirement benefits are expensive yet above-average. Working from home is typically acceptable, with travel needed occasionally. Safety is extremely important, and a valuable aspect of the company experience.Advice to managers: Provide training opportunities, and offer consideration for employees who have not been fully trained. Offer additional job flexibility to employees who are in training and/or learning, while allowing for opportunities to cross-train.
Assistant Project Manager in Midvale, UT
I had a great experience working for Terracon in the Midvale (Salt Lake City) office over the past four years. My favorite aspect of working for Terracon in SLC was the unwaivering commitment to safety. I could stop a job at any time, if something feels unsafe, and I trust that there would be zero repercussions. More than that, I would be supported in my decision and assisted in finding ways to make that job or task safe. The CEO, office managers, and supervisors are very firm on their commitment to supporting employees making decisions about safety of themselves, other employees, subcontractors, and the public. Terracon sets the bar VERY high in this regard. Terracon also has an amazing culture overall for a consulting company. Of personal accountability, of producing quality work, of coworkers supporting each other and each other's projects, etc. It's a great environment to grow professionally in. It's a growing office with a steady flow of interesting and diverse projects and a really committed staff.
