    Pros

    DPR Construction deeply cares for their employees. They want to see each individual excel in both their professional and personal lives. I've never felt so strongly about my future with a company than I have at DPR.

    Cons

    Some internal growing pains throughout the acquisition in the Southeast, but nothing to be unexpected as two cultures come together.

    Pros

    Uses a lot of technology. Benefits are great (If you are lucky to be salaried).

    Cons

    They don't give you the chance to prove yourself. Hourly employees don't have any benefits except health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and promote hourly workers. They are willing to do their best to succeed.

    Pros

    Awesome company, profit sharing, benefits, good vacation, never boring, great people, locations change. Extra week sabbatical vacation after 5 years. Great maternity benefits.

    Cons

    None worth listing or being descriptive about
    I wish they were in Idaho where I live

    Pros

    The office environment is great. No one...NO ONE...has an office. We are all on a level playing field here.

    Cons

    We have a 'pay your dues' business. The longer you are here the more you opportunity you have.

    Pros

    The type of projects are great

    Cons

    The management team is not always great at communicating.

    Need more communication at the regional management team nation wide. Not consistent throughout company.

    Pros

    Career growth, they have fun, and they care about their people. Their projects are always interesting and cutting edge.

    Cons

    They put a lot of trust in their employees. You have to want to work independently and willing to be a decision maker.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever lose your culture!
