This is not a place to start (or end( a career!

ProsGood benefits package and some very good employees at the mid-management level. Not much good to say about the company other than that.

ConsThis is a very small investor group owned LLC (currently only 3 owners left). They have lost 6 owners/executives over the last 4 years due mostly to investor infighting and political positioning, although some have been due to sheer incompetence. The leadership at this company is extremely egotistical with absolutely no reason to be (i.e. they truly believe they're the smartest people in the room, but have not much of a track record to back it up). They have unfortunately become a bit of a laughing stock in Kansas City (their corporate headquarters) and have run into serious problems with their bonding company. This is a Titanic ship in a really tough industry right now... enter at your own risk!

Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership HAS to stop worrying about making themselves look good to their peers. They HAVE to stop with political positioning and really get into the nuts and bolts of leadership (and that doesn't just mean quoting sentences from the inside of management book covers that you haven't read!). MANAGE... LEAD... DRIVE RESULTS... TAKE CARE OF DEVELOPING YOUR EMPLOYEES.... QUIT LOOKING FOR A FAST BUCK WAY OUT -- THERE ISN'T ONE.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Walton Construction Company


    Pros: Walton is a large company, and therefore offers many opportunities to get a "foot in the door" to advance your career.
