    Pros

    Great compensation. Willing to help but expect you to learn everything by yourself. Too many policies and procedures.

    Cons

    Some co-workers make life miserable.

    Was a great company but lost much of the small company feel as they expanded (quite rapidly) over past 6-7 yrs...

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

    Pros

    Good people, decent training opportunities

    Cons

    HUGE disconnect between executive leadership and the entire rest of the organization resulting in employees having little to no channel for providing input, voicing concerns, etc. other than to their direct manager (which has lead to conflict in interest on several occaisions...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get around the office and talk to your employees more often, know peoples names (and how to pronounce them), and bring back the small, family-owned feel that was once present...

    I worked at Boland as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is really nice and try to keep the company closely knit and pay very good attention to keep associates happy. The atmosphere is really fun and the management is really welcoming at every level and sector.

    Cons

    Work for interns is either extremely demanding all the time or very far and in between and depends on which department you are landed in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intern workload should be more balanced

    I worked at Boland full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere in a brand new building with all the amenities. Coworkers and management willing to provide support for the most part. Constant free training available onsite.

    Cons

    Very flat organization with limited opportunities to get promoted. As with any other company in the construction field the job site hours are 6am-2pm, and office work would prolong to 5pm. Therefore, 10 to 12 hour workdays were frequent, but PM's do not get overtime. Salary was not competitive.

    Pros

    Great people here. They are willing to help and share their knowledge. The company shows concern for their employees by listening and making changes, but it can be a slow process. Overall, the company treat you well.

    Cons

    The company seem to be hiring most of the time, but this mostly won't be a position for you to move up to. It's very hard to climb the ladder due to the lack of need. You need to know the right people to help get what you want and you might have to fight for it. Office politics.
