    I worked at Morley Builders full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Project variety, people (depending on the project), work-life balance (depending on the project)

    Cons

    The company is (was) very top heavy. I always questioned whether there was room for long-term career growth.

    Pros

    Good Salary, Benefits and Projects. Company invest time and money into anything that has the potential to benefit the organization. Concrete division owns it's own forms, pumps and other equipment. Diversified in LA, OC and SD markets.

    Cons

    Superintendents and Carpenters Foreman are put above the Field Staff (PE's and PM's). This is a very out of date philosophy. Some Superintendents are very skill less and it shows. Projects are grossly overstaffed. Company will substitute employees of the concrete division into Superintendent positions. It is unethical to bill a Concrete Foreman as a Superintendent to a client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that a project will never be completed without your Field Staff, if money doesn't come in nothing is built. Projects are a TEAM effort and this does not exist at this company.

    Great Contractor & Excellent Reputation

    Pros

    Overall a great company to work for and regarded as one of the best contractors in Los Angeles. The company offers good benefits and the salary / bonus structure seems to be higher than average. The opportunities for learning are quite extensive since the company works on a broad range of project types and self performs concrete work. Employees are generally given the opportunity to take on as much work as they can handle/want and are subsequently rewarded for it. They also provide a good atmosphere to work in as management generally seems to care for the employees and most employees seem to enjoy working with each other.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there are no opportunities to leave So Cal as the company's operations are limited to Los Angeles & San Diego.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the annual review process. It's kind of a joke to have a VP give a review without directly observing employee work product... leave this to direct supervisors. A better education reimbursement plan would also be a plus
