    Pros

    If the Portland division is any indication of the Seattle Lewis, the company has a great culture and most refreshingly a distinct lack of ego. Having worked for large contractors the attitudes, flexibility, and small company feel is extremely refreshing. Great people, innovative thinking, focus on efficiency, client focused, and good to it's folks... what more could you ask for in a general contractor.

    Cons

    Systems are not fully developed on many levels and although some may look at this as a con, others may find this refreshing and having great potential. Some of the leadership and people are not as aggressive as some may be used to in this business which could be looked at as a con. Compensation is fairly medium to low for the industry but this is in exchange for the pros that the company offers.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the current and original culture in spite of growth and new faces at senior positions. Keep the company feeling small and regional and resist overbearing corporate policies like the plague. Identify great talent WITHIN the company and reward as much as possible. Keep it lean, keep it green, & above all keep it humble.

    Pros

    - Great culture of mentoring young people to pass on success and knowledge. - Countless opportunities to get involved with company events, recruiting, networking, business development, etc. - If you want to learn how to use a program all you have to do is ask. One on one BIM/Revit/CAD sessions are available via our BIM Dept. There is no restriction on who gets to learn what. - Big emphasis on being at the cutting edge of construction technology. All new PE's get two brand new monitors, double screens! IT is always trying out new gadgets and PE's are usually tasked with testing out tablets, new programs, etc. - Brand new office being built in Westlake/Bell Town area. Refurbished an existing brick building from old Seattle era. Used to be the Union Stables Building. The bottom floor will have a restaurant and coffee shop. For the many employees that bike to work, there will be bike racks and a locker room. - Great group of repeat clients, all doing interesting projects. - Some very cool, one of a kind Seattle projects underway and on the horizon. Backlog of new work is looking very nice. - 100% employee owned through an ESOP. - Always pushing lean construction and LEED. - Good starting salary. Raises and Bonuses given in the spring. - People don't spend their life working. Everyone at the company keeps a good work-life balance. No pressure to stay late. Most people pack up at the end of the day and go enjoy the outdoors. - Awesome company events and get-togethers. Always great food.

    Cons

    Like any company, as a new employee trying to figure out where you fit in can be intimidating. However, most new employees are informally assigned a mentor to help guide them along.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it rolling!
