    Pros

    Most management care about their people Good training programs for engineers and craft Not micro managed for the most part Great place to get experience while young

    Cons

    Terrible work/life balance (but this goes for general construction industry) Must be part of the "click" in order to climb the ladder

    Advice to Management

    Obtain better efficacy that will in turn allow folks to life a more balanced life. The next line of professionals will Not work 10-12hrs/per, no matter the pay. This is critical for the success of the company

    Pros

    Upper management was very supportive and it seemed like they actually cared about your experience. Having a certain level of autonomy was nice as an intern. Had a good opportunity to wear a lot of hats.

    Cons

    Not a very intellectually stimulating experience. The work was pretty boring/slow and unrewarding. Also worked a lot of hours (50+ a week).

    Good construction experience, but that's about it.

    Pros

    Good construction experience for any entry level engineers. The job had lots of talented engineers and supervisor with years of experiences under their belt. I've learned a great deal from everyone in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Maybe it is the mining industry trend, but people at this job were very disrespectful to each other. Besides the vulgar language, there was no teamwork involved while working on the field. On the management site, there were no or very little training was given to the new engineers. There was no acknowledgment or motivation for doing any good work, but if a mistake was found, then the person would definitely be notified. The work place wasn't very diverse. The majority of the workers were Caucasian, especially from the Midwest. The management didn't care very much for the well being of their employees, but rather use them without any remorse. Maybe that's why, 60% of the employee left the company at the end of the project, including 4 engineers and the project manager on the job. (Which was almost all of the engineers on that project). From what I've heard, this company usually have 2 years employee turn around, which says a lot about them. The salary and benefits of this company were decent compared to other construction company, but the job didn't provide a good work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management should definitely look into improving the training program for their employee and actually have an HR department that cares for their employee. Better diversity would definitely help.

    Pros

    Good Salary, Fun times in the office usually. good exposure in terms of engineering projects. The team in constituted of young, recent graduates so we all understand each other, and are often helping each other.

    Cons

    Not very diverse company. Mostly caucasian men, perhaps because it's the construction industry. Some of the managers are unaware of potential sensitivity of new hires, using obscene language or not communicating properly (not saying please, yelling, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Please Get better at diversity. Hire more minorities.

    Pros

    Very good training for employees. If time permits and training is in line with work duties. upper management strongly encourages employees to go for training. Company is very generous in that sense.

    Cons

    Health insurance quality less than desirable. Must be willing to pack up and move at a moment's notice. Will be moving from location to location on jobs that are typically 2 to 4 yrs long.
