McHugh Construction is a good, solid, reputable place to work.

Assistant Project Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at James McHugh

ProsIt is a very large construction company but maintains the atmosphere of a family-runned company. Co-workers are very friendly and supportive when approached for advice. There is a wealth of industry knowledge from which to draw on when confronted with unique dilemmas. The company enjoys a very good reputation within the construction industry which makes it easier to work with city officials, subcontractors, owner's reps, and architects. The company's quarterly newsletter is one of the funniest and more interesting pieces of official literature that I have ever come across. The general feeling is that it's compensation packages are fair for the industry.

ConsThere is very little feedback from upper management regarding job performance. Annual reviews consisted of filling out a job satisfaction form and returning it to the corporate office. Only recently did the company begin to require the use of standardized project management software. However, the software that is being required is not typically used for construction management. It is more of an accounting package and as a result many project managers are still using their own preferred software. The company operates an in-house print shop but does not have an over-sized color scanner or printer. There have been times when I have been forced to use Kinko's to scan and distribute documents to subcontractors.

Advice to Senior ManagementMeet with the members of your project teams to discuss job performance.
