    I have been working at Granite full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Travel on the company's dime. Lots of experience. Diverse work force. Management works around employee needs.

    Cons

    Personal time is based on customer needs - r&r scheduled every six weeks doesn't mean you'll get it at that interval. Little room to move up in the company. Certified training seems based on favoritism at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your techs. If they say they don't want certain training, they don't want it. If they say they do, they do. If they bring up issues regarding other techs, take it seriously - they don't like to take minor issues to management any more than management wants to deal with minor issues. Create opportunities for employees to increase their skills and responsibilities. Stay in closer touch with field techs - know what drives your employees.

    I have been working at Granite full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced and there is always something going on whether you like it or not. Supervisors can be fair and reasonable but employees also have to be fair and reasonable. Work load moves quickly and being flexibility will reward you better opportunities.

    Cons

    Gossip is so terrible and you always have someone trying to compete with you. Some departments are lazier than others, making you work harder. No real growth, there are only opportunities to move to different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your those you supervise. There are a ton of bad apples just hanging on to the job just to get paid.

    Pros

    the work is challenging the money is good the benefits are ok. great people to work with in the field office not so much.

    Cons

    management is out of touch with employees it would rather hire new management outside of it company than advance its own employees. Some of the Forman's use there power to get what they want even if it means running over you to do it. and office will lie to you on a regular basis to get you to do something.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring up in what you have instead of going outside your employees know more than you think if you give them a chance. get rid of the bad foreman's .
