Pros

Compensation and are benefits competitive.

Cons

Form over substance; they talk it but don't walk it anymore. No consitency. Management by the book of the month club.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Say what you actually mean and mean it when you say it. Have the guts to fire someone if you want them out, rather than just making, or trying to make their life miserable enough that they quit. Allow people to speak truth to power. Establish an HR Department.

    Pros

    Sundt is committed to its core values and continual improvement. In today's world, its refreshing to know you work for a great company with integrity. Although the construction industry is thousands of years old, Sundt is always looking to be innovative. If an employee has a great idea, the upper management will provide backing.

    Cons

    There are so many talented people at Sundt - a lot is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job.

    Pros

    Well known and is a leading contractor in the Southwest. Is very interested in staying on the leading edge of technology and construction processes. Sundt has good internal training programs. I took over 15 classes (2 to 8 hours each) ranging from public speaking to customer relations to legal employment rules and sexual harassment guidelines during my first 6 months. This continued with ongoing training beyond that. The company also gives $500 to $1000 bonuses for getting various certifications. The company is employee owned so there is profit sharing--but you have to have been there for a few years for this to make much difference.

    Cons

    Too many employees have been there too long and there is a group think mentality. They are trying to get the right people on the bus--but it appears the right people are just too much like those already there. A little bit of nepotism also. The current management, although having been there a long time, does not seem to be very cognizant of the overall business cycle and may be blind-sided by the economic downturn. This may affect the stability of employment there if they are forced to lay-off because of over-optimism. The benefits are also set up to overly benefit those that have been there a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stir things up a little and open up the middle management to more senior positions to outsiders. A lot of current employees just seem to have the attitude of passing the buck and want to get along so they stay along. Most employees appear to lack an attitude of excellence. If glossing over problems makes everyone happy then so be it.
