    Pros

    Brand is continuously growing so there is always new opportunities and a defined career path for employees to advance. Management team is very down-to-earth but professional and interacts with all levels and regions throughout the company globally.

    Company cares and really strives to be safest in the industry. Makes sure employees are taken care of.

    Cons

    Could use more work-life balance sometimes.

    Pros

    General Forman and Supers are easy to talk to and flexible with odd days off for a mile and emergencies.

    Cons

    Foreman and leadmen on the scaffold can get out of hand with doing the work all on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Education for foreman to show them how to delegate tasks to journeyman and apprentices.

    Pros

    They pay you in dollar's instead of peso's. Honestly it's a job and nothing more, don't expect to be here too long if you are looking for a career.

    Cons

    Safety Managers hiding deficiencies from the customer, coaching employees to lie on written statements about what happened, withholding (stealing) bonuses from Safety Tech's assigned to turnarounds, hiring unqualified, unethical and unmotivated junior Safety Techs depending on who they are related to or sleeping with. So it is no wonder why I was there almost a year before moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how a professional organization operates.

    Pros

    The VP has an open door policy. If everything fails with the chain of command, you can contact him..

    Cons

    If you are a woman of minority (African American) you will be treated unfairly. You will not be able to get in a higher position if you have the training because supervision and upper management only hires family members, who have no experience with top pay.

    Advice to Management

    Train management on proper treatment of employees and have the hiring center place employees in proper job positions based on experience not the fact that they are family..

    Pros

    good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Used to work for Harsco, however we were merged with Brand this past year. Old fashion management styles and concerned petty. Willing to give up new business because it didn't meet their 'threshold' however now the competition is taking over.

    Advice to Management

    consider advice from your employees and look at the entire market not just what you want.

    Pros

    Provides training for Project Managers, Superintendents and promising employees. Office culture is the same as most places. You will always have "that one guy"

    Cons

    There is no definitive career path. It is luck of the draw sometimes. You have to earn your time off based on hours work and other aspects.

    Pros

    Company was good early on when they were focused.

    Cons

    After sale in 2013 they became too large to manage themselves, losing great talent and retaining mediocre ones based on who you know

    Advice to Management

    Get to better understand what you are trying to do and communicate it to everyone. Figure out who can do things and let them do it instead of changing priorities and not using the good talent there.
