    Good overall experience

    Vice President Sales (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsFair compensation, good working environment, open communications are just a few of the reasons CMC was a good company to work for. They always had an eye for growth and weren't afraid to invest in needed infrastructure to get that done.

    ConsEarlier in the 2000's the company leadership was lacking but their ideas and direction were good. The culture was in need of changing and the route chosen to make those changes was flawed.

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

    Some good

    Reinforcing Steel Detailer (Former Employee) Fredericksburg, VA

    ProsI enjoyed the people I worked with. I learned a lot about reinforced concrete and the construction business while working in the detailing department. Always harped on working safely.

    ConsThe detailing department was under staffed. Expected to work a lot of overtime. Pay raises very small. Saw a lot of people come and go. Never really knew how I was doing or how to improve. Always implementing new ways to do things, hard to keep up.

    True corporation

    IT Curriculum Quality Analyst and SAP Trainer (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsGreat benefits, regular hours, little to no supervision or direction on project or duties. Convenient location to most of DFW.

    ConsNot competitive on salary, little to no compassion for employees needs, unfriendly work environment, Company seems to lack direction for the future.

Previous employees will be happy to consult with the management to help you rebuild the company in a manner that will make current employees more satisfied with their jobs.

    Honest work, honest pay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seguin, TX

    ProsThey pay well, willing to accept most applicants willing to work. You'll get paid well but also work really hard if you're actually someone making steel. Many interesting people to work with.

    ConsHigh chance your coworkers will be rude, obnoxious and not the smartest people around.

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