    I worked at Baker Concrete full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Family run business where the owners have an overwhelming sense of responsibility for each employee. Compensate their employees very well relative to their true contributions and/ or market value.

    Cons

    From an organizational standpoint there is a complete lack of leadership at all levels. While the owners care about their employees, they are unable to figure out how to transition the company from a family run business to a professional organization. New ideas are welcome so long as you leave them at the door when you arrive. They talk about vision and strategy but do not know how to define or implement either. These factors, along with many others, mean baker is a place to get a job but not a place where you can build a career.
