    I have been working at Tarlton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. Family atmosphere because it is owned by a third generation family
    2. Not into placing blame on people, but focusing on solutions
    3. Generous with profit sharing, and maternity leaves, and health leave. I was out for three months due to a health issue, and they paid me during that time period when by law they certainly did not need to
    4. Travel is light for a construction company
    5. They hire quality, high character employees who mesh well together

    Cons

    1. The pay scale is not the highest, but I think the benefits of working here far outweigh the pay issue
    2. We may be growing too fast but time will tell
    3. There are a lot of senior people who are not retiring or leaving soon, so advancement is an issue sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being yourselves, and do not adopt a "corporate" mentality as we grow. This turns off employees here, and our subcontractors.

    I worked at Tarlton

    Pros

    The executives give respect to all levels of employees from managers to laborers.
    The company culture is to treat subcontractors and vendors as they would clients.
    The offices are really nice.

    Cons

    I felt there was favoritism in hiring and promotions.
    There was an anti academic attitude within the company.
    There is no formal training program for young people.
    The pay was below average and the bonuses even worse.
