    ProsBovis is a big company so you can transfer worldwide if there is an opening, however, you have to dig to find these opportunities.

    ConsIn CA, Bovis only does construction management, which has dried up for them over the past 3 years. Sometimes when you get placed on a project, you are stuck there and can't move around to other projects if they like you. You can get pigeonholed into a position, and your career growth stops.

    Ok place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    Prosworks hours are long, but the job is rewarding. However, with commerical real estate getting hit, I'm worried about our long term prospects.

    Conssometimes the work hours are too long. Would like more vacation time. My manager is a pain because he is always trying to meeting quarterly targets.

    What has happened?

    Preconstruction Manager (Current Employee)
    Bethesda, MD

    ProsLike many construction companies, safety if a critical success factor for their employees and contractors. Everyone who arrives on the jobsite in the morning, needs to go home safely at the end of the day.

    ConsJust not sure where this once highly recognized company is headed. With an exceptional resume from the past, their efforts to diversify their market portfolio seems to have put them in a precarious situation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeveral of managements ideas and philosophies need to another look. The attempts to increase your presence in the industry hasn't worked and finding scapegoats to sacrifice is a feeble attempt to keep your doors open. You lost too many of your key people and those that are still there are not happy.
