    Great start, Terrible to Finish

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)

    Pros- Level of responsibility
    - High profile jobs
    - Ability to climb the ladder fairly quickly once you're able to provide proof of results
    - Good team environment

    Cons- Severe lack of diversity in management
    - Very poor work/life balance (don't listen to how much they preach, it's nonsense)
    - Less and less transparency at the higher levels
    - Too much bravado, not enough innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing future MANAGERS not Engineers. What do you get when you throw a bunch of untrained, impersonable, highly intelligent Engineers on a job-site? Make sure people are happy, not just paid on time.

    Clark Construction is an excellent company that cares about their employees.

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsClark's professionalism, polished processes, and consistency make them well respected by subcontractors and owners alike. The company culture fosters a positive team spirit on the jobsite. As a result, I get to spend each day surrounded by people I truly like working for a company that I'm proud to be a part of.

    ConsIn my experience and observation, the promotion process can be tedious and often promotions are overdue by the time they are awarded.
