I have been working at Terracon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The stock plan seems to be really good and benefits seem to be ok. If you can get up into upper management you can have a real future here, I think.

Cons

Co-workers are not happy and always quitting, and the pay is horrible. Engineers are hired at $15.00 an hour. Upper management seems to busy putting out fires due to short staffing, and not focusing on the real problems, like hiring qualified staff, paying them accordingly and keeping them for the long term.

Advice to Management

To much to list.

    I have been working at Terracon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Freedom when letting non-essential personnel go, competitive with similar firms, staff personnel treated appropriately most of the time.

    Cons

    Hired some people with issues as support personnel.

    Advice to Management

    You can and should compensate staff better then field personnel. Field personnel are (not to be rude, but it's true) expendable and shouldn't be compensated more then $12/hr. I'm not going to cut my bonus just to accommodate these people. The world needs ditch-diggers too.

    I have been working at Terracon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not to many. Trucks were nice. Office was always air conditioned, coffee was readily available and always hot.

    Cons

    Long days, frequently worked 2am to 5pm or later. Long weeks, 70+ hours, including Saturday and Sundays. The department managers were a joke, only cared about their departments "charge ability". Pray that it doesn't rain, or you might as well pick up pennies in the parking lot to make a living. No room for advancement, "raises" were laughable. Columbia office was pathetic, watched 15 people get hired and quit within the course of a year.

    Advice to Management

    Go outside yourselves and work 2am to 5pm and then you can talk to others about working those type of hours.
