    Pros

    The people. Whether you are in the office or in the field our people make the difference. When it comes to ethics, there is not a better company to work for. The top management team is approachable and has an open door policy - something not found in companies with 300+ employees.

    Cons

    Because we have so many projects in so many places it is difficult to meet everyone and interact with them. At our company picnic it is great to meet those who rarely make it up to our corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone, no matter what level. Encourage change! Keep your promises! Include everyone.

    Pros

    The last 2 years have been difficult due to the poor economy however weathering the storm hasn't. There have been some layoffs but who hasn't had to do that? The attitude of the employees all along has been to work hard and fill in where needed. We treat each other as we would our own family. I have almost 9 years with Roebbelen and love it here!

    Cons

    For my type of work, there's not a lot of room for advancement without a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking towards the future.

    Pros

    smaller company than the larger competitors. Excellent benefits. Family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Over bearing management, vague company direction, promises to employees not kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a clear path and stick to it. Be realistic about your goals and economic forecasts. Stop laying off one or two people per week, pick a group and move on.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere set in a great location.
    This company will continue to grow and will provide opportunities for all who want a challenge.
    Strong field crews capable of delivering quality work.

    Cons

    Roebbelen is capable of delivering any project they take on. Sometimes other companies are choosen for their name and not capabilities. Though most of our work is in the Bay Area, we are not always recognized as a Bay Area contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking for creative ways to increase market shares. Trust and empower the great employees you have to take it to the next level!
