    Good construction experience, but that's about it.

    I worked at Traylor Bros. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good construction experience for any entry level engineers. The job had lots of talented engineers and supervisor with years of experiences under their belt. I've learned a great deal from everyone in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Maybe it is the mining industry trend, but people at this job were very disrespectful to each other. Besides the vulgar language, there was no teamwork involved while working on the field. On the management site, there were no or very little training was given to the new engineers. There was no acknowledgment or motivation for doing any good work, but if a mistake was found, then the person would definitely be notified. The work place wasn't very diverse. The majority of the workers were Caucasian, especially from the Midwest. The management didn't care very much for the well being of their employees, but rather use them without any remorse. Maybe that's why, 60% of the employee left the company at the end of the project, including 4 engineers and the project manager on the job. (Which was almost all of the engineers on that project). From what I've heard, this company usually have 2 years employee turn around, which says a lot about them. The salary and benefits of this company were decent compared to other construction company, but the job didn't provide a good work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management should definitely look into improving the training program for their employee and actually have an HR department that cares for their employee. Better diversity would definitely help.

    I worked at Traylor Bros. as an intern

    Pros

    Good Salary, Fun times in the office usually. good exposure in terms of engineering projects.
    The team in constituted of young, recent graduates so we all understand each other, and are often helping each other.

    Cons

    Not very diverse company. Mostly caucasian men, perhaps because it's the construction industry.
    Some of the managers are unaware of potential sensitivity of new hires, using obscene language or not communicating properly (not saying please, yelling, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please Get better at diversity. Hire more minorities.
