    I have been working at Charles Pankow Builders as an intern

    Pros

    - You get the field perspective of the construction engineering process. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    - Long hours of work and stress. They load you up with work with just enough to be able to walk on your own two feet.

    I have been working at Charles Pankow Builders full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great... good camaraderie among your peers. Within the last year, flextime has been adopted to set your 8hr workday (ie: 7am-4pm) doesn't really work too well for those in the field but office staff can take advantage.

    Cons

    hours on site can be gruesome. most lower level employees are overworked and underpaid. upper management plays favorites based off who strokes their egos more and not based off performance. promotions are difficult to come by, management doesn't know what their people do so they rely on a list of competencies in order to "check all the boxes" which doesn't always make sense due to the opportunities given to employees.

    Advice to Management

    all employees should have 360 reviews. middle management is killing the company. listen to what employees say in exit interviews and MAKE A CHANGE or there will continue to be high-turnover

    cubicles, lack of teamwork vibe, too serious

    get rid of the cubicles in the accounting department make it feel more like a team as oppose to individual.
