    Pros

    Ability to run the project like its your own company with the project management, construction management, marketing, and sales teams. Also, incredible growth opportunities within the company and people are open to new ideas, constructive criticism, and making processes more efficient

    Cons

    Very little training. Either teach yourself or bother someone until they give you some help but the company doesnt invest any time in face to face training...the only training they've got is online via videos from corporate

    Advice to Management

    If you advertise the APM training program to new recruits, then actually have an APM training program. Also, if Project Managers are tasked with leading and training their teams, they should be taught how to do so before taking over projects, otherwise you get projects where people struggle to succeed in-spite of management, not because of

    Pros

    The company is very large, and as a result, is resilient to most economic downturns. The benefits packages are standard for most larger companies as are the salaries. There are many opportunities to acquire extra pay through overtime, and occasional incentives for increased production beyond the yearly bonuses. The overtime is optional which means that there is a very fair balance between work and life but if you choose to participate, you can make large sums of extra money. There are always new initiatives for employee satisfaction to increase morale in this department. Company (not department specific) Perks: On campus gym Game/Break room Lots of friendly people Holiday celebration contests/parties

    Cons

    The work is monotonous and will largely go without any type of accolade. Because there are employees that have been here for a while and plan on staying around, there is slim to no chance of upward promotion. The promotions are, as far as can be discerned, not based on any objective data but rather seem to be handed out in terms of year of service or at managers subjective discretion.

    Advice to Management

    Architecture Specific: When implementing large scale updates to the product, allow time for employees to fully finish what they need to before implementing another. The backlog of outdated work will only hurt the company in the end. Allow lower level employees to experience more of the company operations outside of the office environment.
