Pros

If you are part of the upper management team, they will treat you good. Good enough that they don't make waves to fight for the field hands.

Cons

They hire in states with some of the lowest costs of living (i.e. Houston), and send them to work on a state with one of the highest (i.e. Stamford, Ct). Their per diem package barely covers half the hotel bill, if you get into the one that gives the company a discount, otherwise a quarter of the bill. They don't compensate you for the cost of living increase at all. The ave. carpenter there is making 14 hr. and the prevailing wage in Ct is 28 to 38 hr.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a dozen field hand (plus or minus) cycling in and out of that job on a weekly basis. They can't afford to work there and the management team there doesn't care. Ask yourselves why?

    I have been working at Baker Concrete

    Pros

    Great benefits. As a new mom provided days off as needed to take care of my sick daughter. Able to bring child to office with me if she doesn't have daycare. A lot of opportunity for advancement, if you're willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Very "man" oriented. Not a lot of opportunity locally. Workload and responsibily has increased tenfold yet have not had a pay-raise in four years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit giving raises and bonuses to the people who lose you money and start to show appreciation to the people who work hard and save the company money.
