I have been working at Structure Tone full-time for more than a year

Pros

Awesome culture. Great people. Excellent investment in employee training. Excellent integrated CMiC business system.

Cons

Somewhat slow in advancement. However this is likely due to low turnover in higher positions. Annual raises small if at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advance employee pay every year. As they learn and grow, their value increases significantly, and other companies are more than happy to pay for that value. It will cost you less to give good raises than to hire new people.

    Pros

    Structure Tone offers a pension that is 100% vested after 7 years. They offer a good dental and vision plan. They have a good reputation in the construction field. They are a little looser in the Boston office than the "Type A" employees in the headquarters in New York, but not unprofessional. They are close to different modes of transportation; commuter rail, subway and bus. Senior management is very approachable and available. They seem to be pretty strong in this economy and have informed us by way of biannual town meetings of their business plan to help roll with it.

    Cons

    The time off policy is in paid time off that is used for both vacation time and sick time. Employees pay 20% for health insurance. There are not enough dentists that accept the dental plan. Benefit information is online and medical information some may not want to be online is required to be. Middle management is very unapproachable, unreasonable, and not open to change or suggestions. There is no communication between management and subordinates. There were a few lay offs which no one was aware of until they realized those people hadn't been in the office for quite a while. Favoritism runs rampant in the office and people who back stab, pass the buck and take credit for things other people do seem to be the ones who get the promotions or little "favors".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give middle management more training on how to motivate and give feedback to their subordinates. Have vacation time and sick time separately. Have more communication on decisions affecting all employees instead of doing things and never announcing it or explaining their actions.

    I have been working at Structure Tone

    Pros

    Great entry-level learning opportunity, due to the number of older, more experienced professionals.

    Cons

    Poor compensation compared to similar companies in this industry. Advancement and clearly defined career paths are not a strength. Too many flimsy policies, placing the corporation in control of making or breaking young driven individuals. The motto, "It's not what you know, but who you know" and office politics, are a must for people looking to make the career leap to top-level 'executive' management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Accountability for middle/top management is key. Change is the only true competitive advantage for long-term sustainability.
