    - Well established systesm/processes

    Cons

    - Upper management doesn't communicate well with employees about where the company is going, prospects...etc
    - Upper management is very clickish. You need a "daddy" to advance
    - You get stuck in the middle of the ladder for a long time with no guidance on how to take the next step
    - Your work long hours and you are pushed to the limit
    - Very conservative in utilizing new technologies

    I worked at Clark Construction Group

    Pros

    One of the biggest general contracting firms in the country -- and easily in the Mid-Atlantic. Many intelligent people work here with lots of experience. Good place to get your feet wet in construction.

    Cons

    No regard for the employee and all about the business. It's understood to get the work done, but there are several other ways to handle scenarios and issues in lieu of what was done. Bureaucratic -- probably because of its large size. Almost no chance to to progress in your career if you are dealt the wrong hand in senior management. Some play favorites and really take care of employees -- others act like employees do not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pete and the extreme senior management is fine and seem to care. It's that lower tier of senior managers that need to wake up.
