    I worked at Webcor Builders full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company culture, company programs, sustainability efforts, training, and open to new techniques and cost savings, collaboration and innovation with 3D modeling. Benefits and lateral job movement is an option.

    Cons

    Since you are most the time based on certain projects you get core groups that work together and usually go project to project together. Seniority has its weight at the company and effects management decisions.

    I have been working at Webcor Builders full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented and professional people to work with. Good upper management with high integrity. Overall good company culture. Decent benefits and fair wage.

    Cons

    Long hours and weekend work are expected without any sort of additional compensation. Some company values are neglected, specifically work life balance. This is generally true of the industry, not just this company.

    I worked at Webcor Builders as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Strong feeling of community with very professional people. Webcor pays very well and has great benefits to offer. During my time with Webcor, I felt like my contributions were listened to and appreciated.

    Cons

    Honestly, the only con I can think of is that this industry is very much so dictated by the economy. When the economy is down, people will stop building and therefore, construction companies may have to lay some people off. However, this is true of the industry as a whole, not just Webcor.

    I worked at Webcor Builders full-time

    Pros

    Overall good work life balance, good benefits and training programs. Offer perks like tuition reimbursement, commuter benefits, bike to work program. Green company with green values that focus on health and the environment. Almost completely paperless and work with a great project management program.

    Cons

    Must be play company politics and well liked to move through the company. Compensation is a little low for the industry but the benefits and perks somewhat balance out. They work on mainly Federal/public projects which can become mundane and routine with paperwork and loopholes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better/competitive compensation packages. Even though there are perks to working here bonuses and compensation should be higher.

    I worked at Webcor Builders full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a company that is backed by a corporation in Japan. That allows them to go after large project because they have the financial backing.

    Cons

    Most of the staff is young and has a degree in CM yet still learning on the job. They need to stick with high-rise projects where their ego is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the difference between Senior people you bring on to the job and young people trying to make a name for them self. Look close at the nepotism within you company. Some feel they can do no wrong and convey that to coworkers.

    Pros

    Good people. Good benefits. Lots of lip service for those who are gullible.

    Cons

    Not so good management. Unreasonable expectations. Most managers out for themselves not company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention the employees have more skills than you give them credit for. You just cannot keep promoting your friends and family.

    Pros

    Family environment; trusting; allowance for individuals to learn more and receive more responsibilities

    Cons

    Too much of a family environment; Perhaps the close bond hampers key decisions that may need to be made on personnel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define our core values and live by them. make decisions by them.

    I worked at Webcor Builders

    Pros

    When you first start out, they really do pay you well.

    Cons

    However, once you start working, it's an unspoken rule that you work 50-60+ hours per week... and that's when the project is going on schedule. When the project is behind, you dont have a life outside the project. You start working 60 hours minimum, weekends, and overnight, if necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to balance home and work life! Your site management and field employees have life outside of the project.
