    Pros

    Gilbane makes you feel like you are part of their family. Gilbane recognizes hard work and it is shown through appreciation. If I were to continuing working for a construction company, Gilbane would be my first choice.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure to participate in events after the work day is done. As an intern, this was not a 9-5 job, as there were a lot of what felt like obligated celebrations and events to go to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management did a wonderful job making me feel comfortable during the interview in front of 10 employees from upper management.

    Peers and office environment was always great. Strong team with great collaboration. Questions were encouraged and peers try to teach you as much as possible. Appreciation is shown by upper management and do a good job keeping everyone informed and up to date.

    Sometimes the work load was too little for the smaller project I worked on. However, hours and compensation was fair.

    Pros

    So many different things to do that you never get bored. Projects are very satisfying when completed. Upper management does a great job showing apprication for employees.

    Cons

    Too much work. The stress level is through the roof and the amount of hours needed for any project it seems is unreasonably high. Compensation should be based off of 60 hour work weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work Life Balance is stressed, however little exists. We work our butts off for a decent wage, however, the life portion of this should be greater emphasized.

    Pros

    Great pay, great management. You will learn many new industry specific skills, terms, insight.

    Cons

    Too much work, not enough people to complete the tasks due to budgeting, therefore you will get fair compensation for your position but expect to be overworked, and have long hours.
