    I worked at Holder Construction full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Holder works in some of the most exciting space in construction today. They have a truly innovative culture and push the boundaries of technology to provide high performing buildings and processes. They provide tons of training, move you around to different operating groups so you compound knowledge quickly and provide tons of opportunity to travel, should you so choose. Competitive pay as well.

    Cons

    Pretty demanding projects, plus you work projects across all time zone remotely, so can be very inconvenient starting EST at 8 am and finishing PST at 8pm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate more vision to younger associates.

    I have been working at Holder Construction full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very family friendly environment with a desire to help employees grow and excel in the company. Every employee gets a bonus in December which is very nice! The company is also very focused on being fit and healthy which I love!

    Cons

    I would prefer to be paid every two weeks but we are paid on the 1st and the 15th. I understand this is a more cost effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't think of any at this time. My experience has been wonderful!

    I worked at Holder Construction full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved being on the jobsite. As a Labor Foreman I was able to interact with 50+ subcontractors as a liaison gaining valuable insight which allowed me to also teach my subordinates.

    Cons

    Superintendents I worked with ignored certain situations that were not beneficial to the company to spiral out of control and allowed a hostile environment. They talk a good game, however, no room for advancement unless you're already upper management. On my second day it was suggested to me to write everything down...which I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr. Holder, please take the opportunity to find out what's really happening on your job sites.

    I worked at Holder Construction full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Better then watching TV at home. Trailers air-conditioned. Safety culture encouraged, if not practiced.

    Cons

    NO work/life balance, compensation below average, disorganization, frequent transferrals, poor workmanship tolerated or even encouraged, not enough innovation, too many meetings and not enough working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you assemble a team to tackle a project, be sure to have a couple of seasoned veterans heading it.
