    Tons of work in and around Houston and very safety oriented.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery structured, great leadership, tons of high profile projects, great opportunity to build your résumé, plenty of training offered.

    ConsLittle possibility of advancement, micromanagers, some office politics, good ol' boys club, sometimes there is too many chiefs and not enough Indians, you are sometimes given responsibility but not the authority so you're often on the hook for others actions and they won't hesitate to throw you under the bus if you're not careful. Wages lower than a lot of competitors. I've been in the company for several years and feel as if I've hit the glass ceiling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate some sort of management training program in which you can weed out candidates from duds, create more clearly defined job duties and delegate responsibilities as such.

    Harvey is a hard working company with many opportunities for young project managers and superintendents

    Superintendent (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsLots of work going on in the Houston area right now. They have good opportunities for growth in the company depending upon how hard you work.

    ConsSome office politics. You have to work extremely hard to get promoted and sometimes it may take a while to obtain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLots of good leaders and bad leader within the organization. The ones only focused upon their own personal achievement and not the companies tend to be micromanagers.

    Not a bad company per se, but not for the faint-hearted.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Pros360-degree view and responsabilities of project management

    ConsGood old boys' club, make sure you get the right people in your pocket.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClear definition of goal, consistency and enforcement of rules would make up for sometimes inherently unequal treatment of employees.
    A better benefit package would not hurt.
    Year-end bonus calculations need to be shared.

    D.E Harvey Field Office Manager. The things they don't always tell you.

    Field Office Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFair salary, great benefits, different atmospheres of work. Your experience will depend on your team so do your research and listen to what you hear. PPE is not always stylish but with the right set of jeans and a nice blouse you can rock it most days. Interior Field Office Managers have it easier so unless you like the great outdoors be specific when they hire you what you want. Bring your admin skills and you have it made, don't shy away from learning to read blueprints and getting your hands dirty.

    ConsYou move around a lot in my job. May not always have a/c and it's killer trying to find something to go with a hardhat and steel toe shoes. You don't always get the same perks everyone else does. Play your politics well for this company. Watch what you say and who heard you say it, gossip makes the world go round and this company is no exception.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with some shoe companies to let the ladies wear more comfortable shoes. Be more consistent on what you offer your employees at time of hire.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
