    Pros

    Company cares about its employees. Continually focused on improvement and how to add value to their clients. Many opportunities for training and learning.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. As with all construction companies, we go through cycles of extremely busy work periods where work / life balance suffers, but that how the industry works.

    Construction market can ebb and flow with the economy. A&P is a growing company with regional exposure but does not have a full national presence.

    Pros

    Friendly environment and company appreciates employees. Often caters in lunch and breakfast. Company works hard to promote safety and education within the company.

    Cons

    Management seems to be more concerned with keeping things how they are than keeping their employees around. When I was there, they were laying off people constantly, but never cut back on the perks. I would rather of kept my job than be fed every day, or have all expense paid fishing trips for a handful of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See cons section. Don't say everything is fine when you are actually planning the next round of layoffs. If you tell the company what is going on, they will be more willing to work with you. If you state that either you cut this bonus/frill out of the budget or people will get laid off, most people (the people A&P want) will stay with the company.

    Very disorganized and largely unsatisfactory.

    I have been working at Adolfson & Peterson

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and better than average health benefits. Location of office is centralized. Still a small amount of family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Upper management for the Midwest lacks leadership capabilities and largely does not appreciate or respect the employees. The continued procurement of employees from one specific other local General Contractor continues to prove a hidden agenda from the Region's Vice President to realign his former "buddies" he used to work with and help them procure the titles and salaries they have seemingly desired. One can only anticipate that this level of leadership can and will destroy what has long been built by the Adolfson family. Disappointment and frustration are two words of a long list of cons that I could list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't listen and are " me" people, so they believe they are not the problem. Selfishness is a hard habit to break.

    A great company with great ethics and business model but needs better communication.

    I have been working at Adolfson & Peterson

    Pros

    The benefits are very good, the people I work with are great to work with and the projects are very good and challenging where I feel like I am being challenged every day.

    Cons

    The communication between management and employees is poor at best when it comes to future or upcoming growth. The salary also seems average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest better communication to young employees looking for advise on where they are to be heading and what to be focusing on.
