    I have been working at Lease Crutcher Lewis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great culture of mentoring young people to pass on success and knowledge.
    - Countless opportunities to get involved with company events, recruiting, networking, business development, etc.
    - If you want to learn how to use a program all you have to do is ask. One on one BIM/Revit/CAD sessions are available via our BIM Dept. There is no restriction on who gets to learn what.
    - Big emphasis on being at the cutting edge of construction technology. All new PE's get two brand new monitors, double screens! IT is always trying out new gadgets and PE's are usually tasked with testing out tablets, new programs, etc.
    - Brand new office being built in Westlake/Bell Town area. Refurbished an existing brick building from old Seattle era. Used to be the Union Stables Building. The bottom floor will have a restaurant and coffee shop. For the many employees that bike to work, there will be bike racks and a locker room.
    - Great group of repeat clients, all doing interesting projects.
    - Some very cool, one of a kind Seattle projects underway and on the horizon. Backlog of new work is looking very nice.
    - 100% employee owned through an ESOP.
    - Always pushing lean construction and LEED.
    - Good starting salary. Raises and Bonuses given in the spring.
    - People don't spend their life working. Everyone at the company keeps a good work-life balance. No pressure to stay late. Most people pack up at the end of the day and go enjoy the outdoors.
    - Awesome company events and get-togethers. Always great food.

    Cons

    Like any company, as a new employee trying to figure out where you fit in can be intimidating. However, most new employees are informally assigned a mentor to help guide them along.

    I have been working at Lease Crutcher Lewis full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone is interested in what is happening, and constantly trying to improve themselves and the company. Tons of resources to get yourself going on a project. These people know what they are doing because they've been around for 130 years!

    Cons

    Some weekends require work, but that's construction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the job training up. That is where new employees learn the most. Continue to incorporate every person involved in the project. This maintains top interest and dedication.

    I have been working at Lease Crutcher Lewis full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been in construction for 15+ years, and this is the best group of people I've worked with. Outgoing, smart, and just a please to work with all around. The leadership trusts employee's to go out and do what you were hired to do, and to do a good job at it, and they seem to all do that. There is no micro-managing with the company!!

    Cons

    It's difficult to find anything that is a "con" with Lease Crutcher Lewis, maybe that they are moving further north into a beautiful new building, and I live in the south end. Longer commute, but this "lean" company pays for public transportation. That's FANTASTIC!!
