    Pros

    Family oriented company that believes in work/family life balance. Decent health care coverage and benefits like 401k. Growth over the past decade but not an impersonal corporation yet. Very flat Sr. Management structure.

    Cons

    Recent failure in the international market for U.S. State Dept led to financial losses and not meeting goals. Key Sr. management departed for other companies leaving less qualified VP behind.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to regional focus and real estate development which is bread and butter of success.

    I have been working at Foulger Pratt Construction part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Foulger-Pratt is a great company to work for. They offer their employees some great benefits and bonuses.

    Cons

    In the leasing offices, the employee turnover rate is through the roof. I enjoyed working in the leasing office, but I worked under multiple property managers, assistant property managers, and leasing consultants. It created a problem for me not only were we understaffed, but each manager had a different set of expectations and ways of operating. The last manager I worked under was very catty and gossiped with a lot of the staff, which created a hostile working environment.

    Advice to Management

    I think the corporate office is great; however, the high turnover rate in the leasing office leads to a lot of problems.

    I have been working at Foulger Pratt Construction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company paid uniforms, good insurance. The company does a lot for the employees and as long as you work there is not much trouble.

    Cons

    The Property management section is small so upward movement in the company is difficult with few opportunities.

    Pros

    Work-Life balance is pretty good. Stress levels remain pretty low for the most part. Some very knowledgeable and kind people employed.

    Cons

    Very low compensation. Benefits package is almost a joke. Foulger-Pratt has a complete lack of Human Resources. HR consists of 1 person who could care less about the average employee. Only there to serve executives. Absolutely no loyalty given by Senior staff. Most management staff making decisions are not qualified to do so. Very close minded company. Run by mormons. If you're not mormon, you won't get far. It's a family run company, anybody there with a large paycheck is Mormon, and a Foulger or a Pratt. I've never gone online and posted a bad review about a former employer, but with my experience at this company I felt compelled to share the inside scoop with potential new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of people that hold Senior positions need to go. Poor decision making and management paired with the most laughable "Human Resource" director I've ever had the displeasure of working with sum up my poor experience at this company. If the "Principals" were to wise up, I believe they could make some changes to really boost their employees morale, and push their company forward.
