I have been working at Suffolk Construction full-time
Suffolk has some of the brightest, most passionate, and dedicated professionals within the industry. In recent years the culture and management structure have been completely transformed into a well integrated team. The enterprise is growth oriented, dynamic, and always strives to improve. The company is highly focused on work-life balance, with 5 Summer Friday's off, a highly progressive paid time off plan, and more employee flexibility. There has been a huge boom in female leadership in recent years, with 25% of the management committee positions filled by women!
On rare occasions politics can still rear their ugly head, but they are much less frequent, much more contained, and have a limited impact on the company's ability to grow and evolve.
Advice to Management
