Advice to ManagementAdvice

continue offering advancement and learning opportunities to young employees. A young employee who can go to work, learn many skills, and earn a decent check will hang around for a long time.

    I have been working at Graycor full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    An overall friendly, laid back environment. The company has very traditional core values, which they are very focused on (people and relationships, open communication, work/ life balance)--and I've found the upper management to be very friendly and approachable. Work/ life balance is great for those that have families. Very modest working hours with flex summer schedules (off on Fridays) for office staff. They also promote out-of-office social functions. They are a family-owned company but are growing rapidly and having record-breaking years, and are going through somewhat of a transition from a small organization to a larger one--and are starting to get some initiatives in place related to training, career development and succession planning, continuous improvement within operations, etc.

    Cons

    Still going through a transition phase, but making solid progress in putting more robust systems and programs in place. They're not perfect but they're making meaningful efforts to improve on all fronts.
    A lot of national work, so many of the Superintendents and PMs must travel.

    Current Employee - Assistant Project Manager in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    I have been working at Graycor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good variety of job opportunities, plenty of travel (if you like that), finally coming around to technologies and procedures others use.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay fair compared to the market, no work life balance and nothing is done to promote it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you value an employee you need to treat and compensate them fairly and recognize the sacrifices they make for the company.
