I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
I've worked at Granite going on 2 years now and I couldn't be happier. Granite has a team atmosphere and is a very philanthropic company; the two going hand in hand. Granite offers employees interesting work in a cutting-edge industry with a clear path to advancement as well as good compensation (including regular company-wide bonuses tied to how well Granite is doing . . . everyone shares in Granite's consistent and continuing success) and good benefits (e.g., 401K plan and healthcare). Granite provides a much better work life balance than I have had in my prior jobs, typically Monday through Friday and only seldomly needing to work nights or weekends (a handful of weekend days in 2 years), with a generous number of paid time off (PTO) days from day one. I plan to stay at Granite for a long time and continue to contribute to and benefit from its continuing track record of impressive growth.
None (except for the commute . . . I should live closer to work or live closer to a T stop, Granite is within walking distance to the redline and a lot of employees commute using the T).
Advice to Management
My only advice to management would be to keep at it; continue to work to grow the company and continue to listen to Granite's employees and share the company's growth with all of the employees.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
Helpful (1)Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Quincy, MA) in April 2015.
A recruiter got me the interview. Spoke initially with the lead recruiter at Granite, whom frankly had a really abrasive attitude and seemed to be looking for a reason to turn up his nose at me. After he left, I waited 20 minutes to speak with the manager, whom was much more pleasant. I was asked very basic behavioral questions, they basically tell you that the 3 month contract they start you on is how they gauge you. I received an offer early next week but declined it because I had heard what an awful place Granite is to work for.
