    Former Employee - Senior Contract Administrator in Knoxville, TN

    I worked at Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very little, if any; management involvement in daily activities.

    Cons

    Very thing has to be approved by a Vice President or above. They either do not know how to delegate authority or are afraid to delegate authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to delegate authority. Chasing for Vice Presidents to get signatures for routine business matters is a waste of money / time.

    I worked at Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure

    Pros

    Diverse, interesting projects, fun work environment, access to technology and resources, great peer group/team working relationships. Fair Salaries (if you negotiate), flexible hours, and travel opportunities. If you can find an advocate in the upper managment structure, you can do well.

    Cons

    Constant M&A integration and re-organization. No apparent long-term vision. Never ending cycle of middle management changes. Poor implementation of mentorship and staff development programs. Bitter employees of acquired firms that were not integrated into corporate could create a poisonous work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better integration of professionals from acquired companies, you purchased them for a reason, integrate them or help them move on. Build bridges between entry level staff and technical and operations management, the generation gap is widening and will become a real problem in the next decade. Stop the management roller coaster, and keep employees informed, our generation is the driven by the 24 hour news cycle; if you don't provide information on the vision and direction of the company on a consistent basis or follow through on previous management plans you will not be able to maintain a connected, dedicated workforce.

    Pros

    A good place to work with benifits and vacation.

    Cons

    The pay is way below the average for this area of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give executive bonuses when you don't give cost of living raises to the "troops" that perform the work.

    Pros

    Good amount of time off, they offer 9-40 schedules so every other week you get a 3 day weekend which is nice
