    I worked at OCI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is a subsidiary of a larger company, Black and Veatch. Black and Veatch is a great bigger company. The company prides itself in being a safe work environment. The company was a great place to work while I was there. I was laid off but I understood the business was not sufficient to support my salary. I did enjoy and use the benefit plan. The staff is very nice. The company worked a 9-80 schedule. Therefore, every other alternating Friday, the employees are off.

    Cons

    However, Overland Contracting/OCI is much smaller and there is a lot of gossiping and unprofessional activities that create disgruntled employees. Some employees are not happy with their work life balance. I did not have this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the managers of Overland Contracting to stop encouraging the buddy-buddy favoritism system, be professional, and allow their employees to flourish at their job tasks.

    Management treats people unfair. You have to push to get your reviews. Very clicky office atmosphere. No training figure out your job on the fly. Everyone overworked not usually compensated.

    I have been working at OCI full-time

    Pros

    I believe their is room for growth within the company as they are planning on increasing their role within the construction industry.

    Cons

    I believe their is always a possibility to lose your way, whether it is in structure or vision, with growth if it goes unchecked. You must be sure of who is a fit for corporate vision and not sacrifice integrity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be true to vision, follow your plan, know your niche, develop relationships, continue to provide a quality product.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. The people are great to work with and you have a lot of variety in the work you do.

    Cons

    Company is going through growing pains which in itself is a good thing. However with fast growth comes other issues when your systems and processes are outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the strong leadership, but don't lose site of the little things that can add to an employees frustrations.
