    Overall Great Family Owned Business

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFamily owned company. Direct access to the executives and owners of the company.

    ConsBad chain of command. Political. Lack of yearly reviews for raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of employees and provide yearly reviews/incentives.

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

    "Just a number within a very crooked company"

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Greensboro, NC

    ProsHas exclusive perks such as... gym memberships, phone plan discounts other hidden privileges set in place to make life just a little easier.

    ConsTerrible Management...Most Supervisors are under-qualified for the positions in which they hold; according to the managers they're ALWAYS right no matter the situation. Workers are treated as peasants with zero input or opinion; Supervisors are family and friends of the family meaning you have to be mindful of what you report out fear of losing your job. Very Political if this person doesn't like that person every worker is affected. Little to no opportunity for advancement; only promotions and upgrades are given to family and friends of the family. There are "zero" pay raises I've worked my position for 3 years with "promises" of pay raises until I had to go over the chain of command and straight to the CEO and even then I was at risk of losing my job. The pay is next to minimum wage and you are basically forced to work overtime just to make ends meet. Once your locked in there's absolutely no time for things outside of work such as family and well-being.At this company everyone is just a number some last 10+ years others last 10 days

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's base positions off of actual qualifications and work experience instead of favorites; and also pay attention to the needs of the employees instead of the next paychecks

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An overall decent place to work, with a few drawbacks

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsFriendly small-office environment, growing company that continues to expand, a remote office in Greensboro, NC, and very diverse experience with a vast variety of projects

    ConsVery high employee-turnover rate, employees have little say in what projects they will be put on and where they will be working (sometimes out-of-state), medical is the only employee-paid benefit (employees pay extra for family), no 401K matching for any employees, complaints that upper management micro-manages too much, but this aspect has improved from about a year ago

    Advice to Senior Managementthere needs to be more uniformity in how the company operates, and less micro-managing

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Feel Like a Number

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsFor the most part you are free to perform your work as you see fit with minimum interference from management.

    ConsNo job security. As soon as the work load slows down they are quick to lay off employees. Mid-level managers are not well trained and need to be more responsive to the needs of Project Managers and Superintendents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a total lack of uniformity from one project to the next. The lack of an established policy and procedures is evident from one jobsite to the next.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
