Great Growth Opportunities Come With Sacrifices

Field Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Hensel Phelps Construction

ProsLarge scale complex projects. Experienced senior staff who have generally climbed the ladder from the bottom themselves, which makes them a better balanced management team than at other companies. Employee owned. Opportunity to accrue a variety of experiences in both the office and the field. Young employees are given an unusual amount of control and autonomy to make choices that directly affect a project's outcome. Pay and benefits are comparable if not slightly higher than competing companies. The company invests a lot into training and development of employees.

ConsLong hours first and foremost, it makes work life balance difficult. Relocation is abrupt and expected, generally the company tries to relocate employees within their district, but in tougher economic times, relocation occurs countrywide, and even occasionally internationally depending on the active projects that require staffing.

Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive staff should take another look on improving work-life balance by more effectively using technology and other tools available, many methods used at this company are "old school traditional" ways of looking at organization and process, HP has the capital to invest in new innovative software, this could benefit company productivity (and employee satisfaction) a lot, particularly in communication.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
