    I worked at Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, team oriented co-workers. The company benefits were very reasonable for cost and offered a scale for single and family options. The managers at the site I worked with were the best I have ever worked with in a company.

    Cons

    Short contract work. At the end of the contract with the Corps of Engineers there would be no available place to go. There was not a lunch or break area, so workers at offsite or at their desks and were constantly interrupted.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to really consider advancement from within, instead of filling the position and then announcing the vacancy with it already filled behind the scenes.

    I worked at Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very little, if any; management involvement in daily activities.

    Cons

    Very thing has to be approved by a Vice President or above. They either do not know how to delegate authority or are afraid to delegate authority.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to delegate authority. Chasing for Vice Presidents to get signatures for routine business matters is a waste of money / time.

    A solid company with generally nice and professional people.

    Cons

    Encourage coorperation between offices and business groups to more fully utilize company resources.

    I worked at Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only pro that remained while I worked at Shaw was that I was employed and my home was less then 10 minutes away. I also met a few great people.

    Cons

    Micro Management; HR inconsistencies; No appreciation; Poor moral; Failure to train new employee's properly; Stone age processes; No willingness to embrace new ideas and processes. Failure to recognize a good job, and reward for it.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand and realize that the people in the field are the ones that should be applauded for their hard work. Not punished
