    I have been working at Timmons Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting projects. Timmons Group is involved in every type of project. Schools, hospitals, subdivisions, local projects, national projects, civil engineering, surveying, GIS/ software development, environmental projects, water and waste water projects, transportation, etc . . . I love the fact that i have had an opportunity to be involved in so many different types of projects. They are a values based leadership company and i really appreciate that they care about the employees.

    Cons

    They have a "work hard, play hard" mentality and have high expectations of everyone. This may not be for everyone. If you are looking for a 9-5 job, probably not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The president/ceo of the company (Brian Bortell) spends tons of time meeting with employees to get their input/thoughts, having lunches to inform everyone about what is going on, being a cheerleader at company events, keeping everyone focused on the company mission. my advice - keep it up.
