The company treats all its employees as contractor.

Civil Engineer (Current Employee)
Florida City, FL

ProsThey match 6% of your base salary when contributing to 401k.
You will make more money than you ever thought possible.

ConsUnfortunately, it is unlikely they will retain you after your first assignment. Every assignment is treated as a separate job. The size of the company requires you to apply for every position almost as if you are applying for a job with another job. Barely any retention unless you are hired directly to their GBU home office. All classes and benefits are only offered to those currently working at the home office. Nothing is ever offered (classes, presentations, lunch-n-learn, etc.) at a field assignment. Most of the employees are on assignment and are ignored.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
