Pros

room for growth, good financial state.

Cons

bad communication all around with apparent ambivalence in day to day operations of specific departments. morale is relatively low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

mid level management is not great. Corporate management seems to be aware and hopefully working on it.

    Pros

    At one time years ago.....it was a great place to work. The transformation was much needed but has dragged on for two years and people are worn out.

    Cons

    The executive team has been watching good people leave for two years now and still can't seem to lead the company in the right direction. Jim Roberts is not a leader. He should step aside and let Tom Case show him how to run a successful business!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jim Roberts should resign.....before it is too late.

    I worked at Granite Construction full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    At one time this was a very good company to work for; the benefits were good and the training received by employees was worth its weight in gold. Branch offices had a family atmosphere and everyone worked together to get the job done. Communications were good and you knew what was expected of you.

    Cons

    This is no longer a good company to work for. The cuts that this company have made in order to stay competitive in the industry have hitten the employees in the field right in the pocket; while certain areas, management, have continued business as usual. Money wasted on new computer system that required more research prior to implementing in the field has caused a lot of extra work and stress on a workforce already stressed beyond its limits. There is no longer a family like atmosphere; they have divided the company into a departmental nightmare. No one takes the lead in decision making; and everyone in the field suffers the consequences. Communications is almost nonexistent; too much information about things that don't matter, and not enough about what you need to know in order to get your job done. This company has lost a lot of good employees and will continue to do so unless there is a swift change in the management team and the way they treat the employees. People will only take so much for so long. Yes there is life after Granite!!
