    Pros

    I have been lucky enough to be on projects with awesome people that make me laugh and enjoy going to work. Work-life balance was nonexistent for my first 6 years but that was more my issue due to the fact I want to be on my projects to make sure things get done they way I like.

    Cons

    Not many perks due to the dreaded corporate ethics policy but that's where the industry has headed. that whole squeaky wheel saying is definitely true and it seems that while it matters that your ability determine your standing, your are more likely to be noticed if your direct manager is one of the in crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Less corporate PR-type speak please. Give it to us straight.

    Pros

    Get to learn from some of the best in the business and be part of some of the best and biggest projects in New York City.

    Cons

    Experience highly depends on Project Manager or direct supervisor. Speak up to be heard.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to have open and honest conversations about my compensation at least twice a year.

    Pros

    Understanding general contracting and relationship-building with subcontractors. Allows for opportunities above and beyond responsibilities. Lots of opportunities for internal training

    Cons

    Horizontal structure and not a lot of room for career growth; leadership is not always transparent in where they want to improve as a business

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering company training and be more transparent on a regular basis on where the company is headed.

    Pros

    Good Company as stated by ENR.

    Cons

    The HR does not have the very basic professional decency to tell their interviewed candidates about their results. It took me 3 months to get an answer about my interview and by then I was zoo tired that I had to beg them to actually reject me and put a closure to all this.
    No coordination between the HR and the Hiring Management Team as they interview international candidates and then tell them that they do not hire people who need sponsorship. The point is international students with 29 months of work visa have the right to work here in USA. But they would prefer local candidates which to me seems like give them the guarantee that they will devote their life to the company. Where as international candidates are even willing to sign a contract that they will stick with that company for a min. of 29 months. I just don't get their view point and I am open to discussion.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't claim EEO. and Tell your HR team to be a little well versed with the hiring policies for international students.

    Pros

    Happy to spend entire career with, Strong family oriented culture, vast opportunity for individual growth and advancement

    Cons

    Same challenges and demands of any company within the construction industry- demanding responsibilities but I wouldn't have any other way. When you work in a high performing best in class company, you always want to do more. Much of that pressure is self-induced, managers expect you to manage your workload appropriately.
