At one time was great, but became a dreary, unfair experience for many people.

Pros

Leadership position from a size standpoint in the industry. Many solutions they can deliver to customers who definitely do need the solutions - trenchless. Neat people across the country in a variety of positions if you have the opportunity to interact with them.

Cons

Senior management is inept. The current and immediately prior CEO are/were focused only on their perception by Wall Street, not their employees and more importantly not their customer base. Do not have a realistic view of how to lead an organization and a business. They are/were paupers looking for approval from their board and Wall Street.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

LISTEN TO YOUR LOWEST LEVEL EMPLOYEES ON UP! They will talk to you and provide feedback that will help you if they do not think they'll get fired for being honest.

    Pros

    Good location...clean offices (at least the ones that have been renovated). Big player in their industry, should be one with upside.

    Cons

    Very political. Inept HR team. Poor executive leadership. Favoritism, back room deals run rampant in promotion discussions. Even those with years of strong service tossed aside for political gain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about your own team by talking to those a few levels down. Show appreciation for those that do the actual work.

    Pros

    If you have the right boss, you have tremendous support and opportunities for learning. The people that you work with can be absolutely wonderful and that makes all the difference between wanting to go to work and needing to go to work.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments and from upper management to the rest of the employees. It's not as bad as I've seen it but it's not good by any stretch either. The fact that they are a publicly traded company is a downside from this point of view because it puts management in a position where they need to hold their cards close to the vest instead of communicating honestly with staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more open with employees, be more accessible. And communicate the bad news as well as the good news.
