    Progress in the right direction from the top, but lack of communication from the middle.

    On Site Manager (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsAlways evolving, People really care about the company-including the owner, Culture can be very family driven

    ConsWork life balance is tough to achieve, Older employees do not understand the new technology- company is in the midst of a old to new transition with technology and some do not want to learn.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOne size does not fit all, and the way things are done in Boston do not necessarily work in other parts of the country. Consider more localized shot calling instead of from HQ.

    Don't Trust Anything That an Executive Says

    Senior Estimator (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    ProsThe company will give you as much opportunity as you can handle.

    ConsThey say they care about there people but they don't. It is a revolving door with employees. I had 3 General Managers, 4 Chief Estimators & countless Project Executives during my tenure. The executives do not give enough time for new ventures to be successful. New ventures take time & they expect results over night.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJohn Fish - Stop listening to all your "Yes Men". They are only telling you what you want to hear so they continue to stay in your good graces.

    A good learning experience, but too many politics

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) West Palm Beach, FL

    ProsIt was a great chance to learn new skills and interact with different levels of people. I learned how to truly multi-task as it was very fast paced.

    ConsThere are alot of politics, closed doors, and everything has to be a secret. If you cross the CFO or the resident lawyer, you are as good as done. Those two boys seem to run the company as they see fit, instead of having it as a team effort.
