Pros

I.Grace can be an exciting place where one is confronted with pretty interesting and unusual projects. Then again this was when the economy was at its peak. Now, due to the recession and decisions made by upper management projects are small in comparison.

Cons

I came to realization that majority of the upper management has marginal construction experience and that it occupies its position at all costs. This creates a rather toxic atmosphere where upper management is helpless in assistance, while maintaining illusion of their purpose to the owner who is not involved in daily operations. With this in mind, prospects of growth are slim to none and there is a big turn-around on mid to lower level management. In addition to the management coming from accounting/business sector, decisions may seem right in short term, but not in long term - particular to treatment of clients.

Advice to Management

Perhaps it would be useful to realize that this recent lapse in economy clearly separated home construction builders into two categories: ones that are doing it because they build and ones that are in it for the money. (Building vs. billing). Latter ones are dropping out.

    Pros

    Good advancement and knowledgable people who are eager to help their employees learn and grow in their careers both with I. Grace and beyond.

    Cons

    Only two locations nationally which did not allow me to continue working with them when I left New York City.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working as you have with your employees. It was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to others any day.

    I worked at The I-Grace Company

    Pros

    Personally, I had a very pleasurable experience working at the I-Grace Company, though it was for a short time. My supervisor was highly understanding, firm and informative all while making my time there very enjoyable.

    Cons

    While my personal experience was wonderful, I can say that there was a very high turnover rate for other positions. The company is fast pace and at times placed high demands upon their employees, leaving them overwhelmed and literally in tears at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be able to communicate issues and/or concerns and follow them through rather than leaving some employees to fall on their face.
