Former Employee - Pipefitting Project Foreman  in  Denver, CO
Former Employee - Pipefitting Project Foreman in Denver, CO

Pros

The paychecks never bounced and they almost always had work and OK equipment.

Cons

They always made promises they had no intention of keeping. I worked as a foreman for 3 years and made the company money only to see people promoted around me simply because of who they new or who their dad was.

I was not the only one doing the work and getting no credit for it, the seem to have a problem noticing with who put the hours in and who just talked the talk.

I think Rick really wished his dad had started something other than a construction company. He was always more in to investing in appearances than the people or equipment to do the job right. Case in point they spent thousands to redecorate the CAD department, but refused to replace the outdated broken down computers and network that the department ran on. He was also more concerned about forming alliances with general contractors than enforcing the safety culture he gave so much lip service to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the promises and the two minutes hate, and actually take care of your people instead of just telling them how well you are taking care of them.

Ask your Dad to come back and help out for the third time, you may be good at building a business, but you should leave the operation to him.

    Current Employee - Level II HVAC Service Tech  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Level II HVAC Service Tech in Denver, CO

    Pros

    There is some very professional,True Tradesmen in the service department. The company has been around so long that for the most part work is steady and the vehicles and equipment are new and for the most part in great shape

    Cons

    The biggest downside is very poor leadership. The managers have no training or skills in people communications and way to often close their ears and open their mouths when the opposite is what is needed. They fail to understand that respect is earned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close your mouths long enough to listen to what your people have to say!!. Exchange is the building blocks of growth!!. Install people that realize that we are there to perform services for our customer base and that your inability to separate your personal egos from that of your responsibility's of the well being of the companys ability to grow and prosper. Install a leader that can build a emploee base from the bottom up!!. That means recruit and train from the level 4 to the level 1. Loyalty is grown, not plugged in!!. You can not point to any current person because we do not have at this time a skilled leader in place capable of fostering such a program. The ten years gone by prove that !!. The lack of true tenured techs prove that!!. Let those that are good at policing if our vans are dirty or shirts tucked in do just that !!. Is it time for a change!. One would have to say yes when we look back on all the years gone by , and we can not show one tenured tech that came up from a 4 to a 1??. The unreal amount of turn over of techs!! Is it that they were all bad, That many bad ,Common sense would say no.If you would really look close i think you might find it is the fault of the those incharge. Those ivested with the responsibility to implement a program to grow a top notch, loyal work force!. Simple,Has the management done that?. If you look close and are honest,Leave your egos at the door!! What did you come up with for a answer?. In ten years you have developed how many top level techs. Was this really what you had for a answer when you put in place the current management team ten years ago??. Hope you answered no!!. Listen you too can learn.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Pros

    iits a job,you normally get paid on time and some of the people there are great to wok with.

    Cons

    THE PAY IS NOT GOOD!!! some of middle management has no business in that position. You are threatend with layoff if you dont work all of the overtime thay want you too. Thay talk about respect but show the people getting the work done very little Thay talk about qaulity then turn around and tell you to hury up and get it done. I think to move up in the company its more whay you say you can do and not what you can really do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    READ THE CONS I realize this is construction there are deadlines,busy times and slow times. You need to listen to the people getting the work done a little more and middle management a little less i tink some of them are just telling you what thay think you want to hear and sometimes thay get in the way of getting things done instead of helping. I have noticed some people truout managment talk the talk but dont walk the walk and that makes other people feel that it is JUST TALK.
