I worked at Granite Construction

Pros

Lots of responsibility if you want it, at least on large projects, does Granite still do those? Haven't seen one in a while, and no, 50 million is not a large project

Cons

Reorganization of HCD/Branch was a disaster, Granite won't be building large work in the west for a while without help

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should have treated long time HCD craft employees better, now you don't have the large project experiance at that level.

    Pros

    Stability, "employee development", large network of resources. Coworkers generally happy to be at Granite. Opportunities to move around country. Safety culture is very important at the field level. Pursues a wide range of projects and alternative delivery method. The benefits package seems extensive, although some complain that the health insurance is substandard. Also the opportunity to pursue a career in aggregates, qa/qc, safety or environmental aspects of construction is appealing.

    Cons

    Large overhead, not an aggressive contractor. No formal training of any value. Also people are often promoted just for years of service, not ability or work ethic. Also it often times seems that once promoted some middle managers lose touch with work. Although, this phenomenon is most likely present at other contractors and businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut overhead significantly, let branch handle all functions locally, reward more on merit and less on time served. Allow employees the opportunity to evaluate supervisors.
