    Fast Pace, Strong Management

    Field Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsI learned more about the construction process in one month with Hensel Phelps than I did in 5 years of college. They provide constant training weekly. The fact that every employee including the CEO started at the Field Engineer position makes working here so much more fulfilling.

    ConsI work from 5:30 am to 4:00 pm. Monday through Friday. I would like the bonuses earlier than 5 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up.

    My first project was a great experience, I look forward to establishing a career with this company.

    Carpenter (Current Employee)
    Santa Rita, GU

    ProsGreat People...the fast and intense pace is exhilarating. I appreciate that I learn new things everyday. Upper management greatly supports growth and learning.

    ConsJust like with every company...too much micro-managing can make the job harder to fulfill.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to see employees who are performing 200% be more recognized. Take the time to know your employees..."Our long-term purpose is to guarantee our company's competitive edge in the industry and aid employees in realizing individual goals for career growth in their chosen fields."-Jeffrey K. Wenaas, President and CEO.

    Office Engineer with Hensel Phelps Construction Co.

    Office Engineer (Current Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsGreat benefits and competitive salary. The company is employee owned. They contribute 15% of you salary into a 401k without any contribution from the employee. Once you reach the Project Engineer level you do start to earn S-units and a yearly dividend payout.

    ConsEmployees work very long hours. You have to be dedicated and love your job. If you aren't willing to put in the effort you won't experience the benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat company. Keep up the good work. Great company culture.

    Hensel Phelps creates a rewarding work environment.

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsHensel Phelps provides their employees with the opportunity to succeed. Responsibility is allocated based upon the employee’s abilities. The allocation of responsibility creates an environment that fosters pride in work. The Hensel Phelps employees all take pride in their job. This includes salaried and craft. All of the craft are skilled and great to work with. Salaried positions are filled by individuals who enjoy their work and want to complete projects to a higher standard than the typical contractor.

    ConsLong hours and possible relocation are possibilites. The long hours are not bad since the time goes fast when working hard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHensel Phelps does very well in creating a profesional environment. Long hours are compensated by great oppertunity, good pay, and a respected benifit plan. Managment does a great job of sharing benifit and corperate information to their employees.

    Great place to work

    Area Superintendent (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsI have worked for several companies during my career and HP was the most supportive companies I have ever worked for. The benefits package is exceptional and salary is consistent with other companies in the industry. Personal well being seems to be a company value and the practice of safety is unmatched. Employees are valued and respected. The company expects a lot from all employees and gives as much or more in return. Working there was the greatest professional experience I have had and only left for a family relocation to a state HP was not currently working. I highly recommended Hensel Phelps for anyone seeking employment.

    ConsHours are long at times but there is a level of give and take and the hours do usually balance in the end.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to hire aggressively even in this economy. You should replace those undeserving of their position or those who take their position for granted and don't value what they really have with HP.

    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsLearned a lot, and was given plenty of reponsibilty to strech myself and grow. Good compensation

    Good place to work

    Field Engneer/Intern (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsLot of training, good work relationships. More of a family atmosphere and relaxed. I've heard not all projects are like that.

    ConsRelocation is a downside to every big company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership I had was really good, I didn't take the position offered to me after college because I was able to start at a higher salary with another firm. Give higher starting salary college grads are poor and need cash right away. Usually we aren't thinking about the long haul. Now I realize I should have.
