    Pros

    Good Benefits, good pay if you're willing to learn and be a hard worked. You get sometimes get downtime to chill and rest.

    Cons

    It can get pretty harsh working in 100+ degree weather inside of a tank that was once filled with oil or gasoline. Hopefully you get a good foreman

    Advice to Management

    Pretty good management. No complaints.

    Pros

    Adequate pay for working long hours.

    Cons

    The cons are that this companies management and HR personal have no problem lying to your face and not doing their job just to cover up issues that are happening.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and eliminate the nepotism. Not a good way to conduct business.

    Pros

    Good working environment, treated employees well. Spent lots of time training employees in various new programs that were constantly rolled out with new company objectives.

    Cons

    Didn't have a real sense of direction or strong leadership on where the company was headed. Wanted to do everything and only excelled in a few core areas. Local leadership was very poor, they hired a few people that bounced around and listened to ideas they had. These new ideas took them away from their core skills and offerings, which ultimately hurt them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, stop trying to reinvent the wheel and stay focused on what built the company over the years. Stop trying to be a company that you came from.

    Pros

    The company is good to work for and the work life balance is great. Senior management is open and willing to hear out different ideas

    Cons

    The company is stuck in a lot of processing work. A lot of time is devoted to producing reports for management to review

    Advice to Management

    No advise

    Pros

    There is a lot of commodity between the estimators. I enjoy coming to work as I work with a great bunch of individuals that make every day unique and rewarding. I enjoy the take-off work and complexity of constructability issues, which is different on every project we bid. We are growing our EPC work and it is very rewarding to see you hard work pay off. Matrix does not usually require overtime for the estimating department, not to say that we don’t work overtime. It makes it very nice to have most weekends off.

    Cons

    The direct management seems to overlook your contribution to the company. Great benefits, pay is below industry.

    Advice to Management

    My advice, don’t forget those that put you in your current position with the work that you have currently.

    Pros

    Good matching from company for contributions to retirement investment plan.

    Cons

    Need to spend more of their money on advertising.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be treated as equals when Christmas bonus is given!

    Pros

    Good strong growing company, I like the direction we are going, long term employment opportunities are there for people that want to work hard.

    Cons

    Project managers seem to get recognition and bonuses for work and up sales done by Superintendents. No bonus programs. We are told we will get bonuses that checks just need to be signed but nothing

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people that really take care of our customers (It's not the PM's) reward the folks that deal with the clients, employees, Engineers, Inspectors, payroll, PM's, vendors, subs, equipment, tools, material, schedules, budget, Managment and of course SAFETY.

    Pros

    Top pay. Good training. Emphasis on Safety.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers leads to disorganization and poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same people on a crew as long as possible. This results in efficiency and positive crew member responses.
