    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They're the largest GC in the DC area and build the largest and most interesting projects around. You can get exposure to a lot of different aspects of the business if you make an attempt to learn. Good job security...only 1 round of big layoffs since the recession, others have been here and there.

    Cons

    Compared to other companies, fairly weak pay and bonus packages. Bonuses are tied to jobs, and some won't reach you for 2-3 years. If you have a good boss they will take care of you at the main office. Many youngsters with 3-5 years in leave for more money and responsibility. Also a very top heavy company, to many meetings with 5 VP's who all have great ideas but depend on the guys at the lower ends of the food chain to do the work.....takes away some of the development opportunities for young managers to take the lead. The 10 days/year of vacation for the first 5 years is weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that better career development plans need to be established. It is so very dependent on who you are fortunate enough to work for and what exposure they give you. Good people get bounced around a lot, especially to some of the large federal jobs that are great for the company but not a lot of fun for your employees. Something outside of the yearly performance review is needed. Also, combine time off and sick to one PTO bank..maybe have 20 days after 3 years???
