    Pros

    Shimmick Construction provides great opportunities, a variety of projects with new challenges, and a welcoming team of engineers and managers that genuinely enjoy working together.

    Cons

    Shimmick claims they value a work-life balance, but that would depend on the type of project and role you were given. They may be growing fast, which may lead to lack of focus on employee development that would otherwise be provided at a smaller firm.

    I worked at Shimmick Construction as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast-growing company that is pursuing the toughest jobs in California. You will not be bored or lack work to do. They put effort into making sure you're always learning, and encourage engineers to earn their PE license. Friendly atmosphere that encourages employees to get to know each other.

    Cons

    Not great compensation, especially for California. Chances to earn performance bonuses, but those are highly dependent on how the company did in a given year, not just just how you performed. Commutes can be horrendously long, because of the nature of the kinds of projects Shimmick takes on.

    Advice to Management

    Consider revising your pay scale. It's hard for young engineers from out of state to move to California on what you offer, even with bonus incentives.
