Current Employee - Production Manager in Oxnard, CA

I have been working at Granite Construction full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

-Provided a lot training to solidify your role within the company
-Given a lot of opportunity to work on your own
-Company truck
-You are given a lot of responsibility over many areas of the business(engineer, safety, environmental obligations)

Cons

-Company vibe changed from "we care about you" to "what have you done for me lately"
-A lot of lay offs, resulted in somewhat closing of the branch
-Medical benefits are not that great.....in fact they are the worse I have ever experienced. I had a part time job, when I was attending college that had better benefits than this; and I was working part time

    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.

    I have been working at Granite Construction full-time for more than 10 years

    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.
