    Safety conscience and working to give the very best in the construction field.

    Current Employee - Operator  in  Tulsa, OK
    Current Employee - Operator in Tulsa, OK

    I have been working at Crossland Construction Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New Equipment and if you need it they get it weather its safety equipment or getting a mechanic out to get you up and running again. We get regular bones at completion of every job . Our crew always succeeds at getting our jobs done at least 2-3 weeks early and under budget.

    Cons

    We only receive raises once a year and if you put back money in 401k and roth they make it impossible to get to. promotions are very small for working 6 days aweek and 10 hr days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to honoring the men that really do the work and not just the office help.....

    Reluctant to change with growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek outside expertise and implement best practices.

    Pros

    Large midwest company with 8 offices yet strives to continue a small company feel. The execs know you by name know your family. Makes you feel appriciated.

    Cons

    Management practices between offices not yet consistant and on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we grow and traveling becomes the new way of life, continue on the relationship basics that have made this big company seem small and everyone feel appriciated for the work they do.

    Pros

    great benefits package especially their health insurance. PTO policy rewards time off for number of years with the company. Education outlets let you add to your resume. They want to see you grow and move up in the company

    Cons

    Some jobsites work larger hours depending on the circumstance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward your supers and field engineers for the extra time they put in on the job. I hate keeping my crew away from their families knowing they are working for less.

    I have been working at Crossland Construction Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Crossland has a story, a good story. It is built on a solid foundation with strong leaders. As a family owned business, it strives to treat and think of all of its employees as extended family. Lots of great values are put into place every day with the education program, giving back to communities, jobsite cookouts, internal awards for achievement/commendable work. Employees are proud to say they work for Crossland.

    Cons

    Still trying to work to achieve outstanding communication in all areas. When communication fails or is not present, all sorts of complications can arise. Continue to direct employees on career paths, take the time to see where employees want to be and see themselves in the future. If they have a goal to reach for, then they can work to get there. Employees will stay loyal to the company if they feel as though they are working to better themselves and the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees achieve more than even they think they are capable of. Put your trust into the employees, push them, don't hinder them. They might prove to more than meet your expectations. Ivan Sr always believed in his employees and looked for their best qualities, he made them believe in themselves and want to do their best for him.

    Pros

    Challenged every day to do your best because of the example set by CEO and others in management. Invest in employees through training and education. Belief in their Mission Statement. Company is successful because management is always striving to improve, and is sustainable because of their vision.

    Cons

    Travel. But that goes with the territory in construction, especially in this economy. We have to go where the work is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of how you got here. Try new things, but if it doesn't work, give it up. Continue to listen to and reward employees who are doing it right.

    Pros

    Its a family business. They haven't lost sight of that. Which is a good thing. They will take good care of their 'good' employees. There are lots of politics, but in reality, name one other company that doesn't have politics.The number of offices all over the country is good as well. The company is growing. Their 401K is pretty good.

    Cons

    There are very different rules for male and female employees. Also, the males are paid more for comparable positions. The vacation policy is well below the industry standard and there is no sick time. The health insurance is a little pricey, but in today's economy that is to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    View men and women as equals. Change the vacation policy. Happy employees are productive and loyal employees.
