  1.  

    My experience with Vanir was excellent, they expect their managers to make their own decisions in order to succeed.

    I worked at Vanir Construction Management full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They give you all the tools required, this includes two weekends per year of full training and lessons learned.

    Cons

    Dealing with difficult clients is the most challenging, you have to be somewhat of a politician.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be more accessible at times in order to assist with issues when required.

    I worked at Vanir Construction Management (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, plenty of training, overall it was a good place to work. Now I am sure I would not recommend it to anyone with much experience in the construction trades.

    Cons

    The company lost its heart and soul with the death of its founder, the entire culture seemed to change and it became a politically driven workplace, if you know how to game the system you can go far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting on ability not just on office or company politics. Bring back the sense of family that has been lost.

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to provide feedback in many circumstances.

    Cons

    Very short sighted, very little follow through, method of acquiring new jobs ridiculous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster growth in the young employees and quit resting on your laurels.

    I have been working at Vanir Construction Management

    Pros

    They have annual training and since it is a small company, you there are a lot of perks and personal attention you wouldnt get elsewhere.

    Cons

    Since you go from project to project it is hard to get to know your co-workers. I worked as intern for over 2 years and they promised to hire me full time which never happened (I ended up getting laid off). They were nice enough to still give me a severance package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are limited numbers of upper management positions.
