    Strong values, glad they've stayed private

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsGreat benefits; promote fast if you work hard; Dan Baker is very humble and very involved. Baker tried hard to keep the staff robust through the downturn but they were up against a changing economy. They offered to relocate me out of state which was more than I expected.

    ConsConstruction is a tough industry. Baker has the same challenges any construction company does.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work, I know of no other form contractor that offers such a feeling of professionalism.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hires out of state because of high wages in statr

    Carpenter (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsThey do take care of upper management

    ConsBeing a field hand, you know how expendable you are.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your field hands better. Give them fair wages comparable to the area you send them to.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Make sure you get everything in writing

    Project Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you need a job they will hire you!

    ConsMake sure you get everything in writing for every year you WORK or you will only get it the first year. They will slowly cut your pay and benefits. They do this to everyone don't be fooled if they hire you. Make Sure it's in writing for the duration of your employment with them.

    great learning experience for those starting out in this trade

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosall over the country
    big projects

    Conspay scale
    relationship between corp. and field staff nonexistent

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your co-workers and you may see most are willing to give a little if upper management took time and put forth a little effort of getting to know your own people. Giving a little more money instead of taking it from them would help with relations and success also.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good for a job, bad for a career

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFamily 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.

    ConsFrom 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
