    I have been working at Terracon

    Pros

    Decent but expensive benfits. Project work varies and is not the same thing day to day. Good and steady employment. Corporate managment is great at implementation and ideas (horrible at follow through). Company functions are frequent. Have recently implemented a great safety program but it is going by the wayside quickly.

    Cons

    There is no leadership and it is almost as if it is discouraged. Low and mid level management are pretty well left to fend for themselves. They have a weird bonus pool where you are rewarded for working less and not loose the company money but penalized if you work too much and make the company money which is partly at the discretion of the department and office manager. As well the loss prevention attitude is so severe it is damaging at times. Internal promotions are in title only and seldom. You are expected to know you have certain responsibilities although you have never been assigned thos responsibilities officially. And chastised accrodingly!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention your lower and mid level managment and remember that you are a CMT, GEO, and ENV consulting company. Afford the same attention to all service lines and treat your technicians the same across the boards.

    Pros

    Safety REALLY is a priority, lots of opportunity to learn as much as you want to.

    Cons

    It is all about being billable. Pay increases are minimal.
