    Pros

    Excellent company to work for, great opportunity to excels, It was 10 years of hard working environment, great potential for young person

    Cons

    better team coordination, better structure, too much early advancement for young and inexperience, too much buddy buddy leadership. Advancement should based on the maturity and leadership ability along with knowledge. Leaders must separated them self from the team they lead during after duty hours.

    I have been working at Granite full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Has some good people especially people that specialize in fields like materials management or logistics.

    Cons

    There pretty much is no structured career path. You're pretty much a part of a variable workforce working on GE projects until you get laid off or decide to quit.

    Current Employee - Technical Advisor- Wind Install in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Granite full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company had fair training, good travel opportunities, and reasonable pay. Granite is horrible to deal with in between projects, but once your on a GE site; it is quite pleasant, and I enjoyed my work.

    Cons

    No clue in the HR department of what talent they have. They don't know a good worker from bad! Classic Nepotism, "Good Ole' Boy" Network. If your not included in it, you might be out of work for 8 months. No job advancement, if your hired for a certain position, you may have a chance at a lead position, and nothing further! If you have any problems to be solved (computer issues, insurance, 401k, etc) good luck, your service manager NEVER gets back to you, along with the staff at Tampa! I could go on for hours about the issues of this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would eradicate all the inept, middle managers, especially the service managers from the wind segment! I would get back to the tradition of when it was Penpower, and hire the best talent who could do the job the quickest and best. Hiring people off the street MUST stop. There were some of my colleagues who could barely speak interpretable English.

    I have been working at Granite as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Good Benefits, Great Building block

    Cons

    Only a job not a career and management will prevent you from crossing into other fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to grow otherwise they'll leave and you'll have lost experience that you've help build. GE Training cost money.
