    I have been working at Zachry Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allows to have a family-life balance as long as not in the field. Also, employees are happy and paid nicely.

    Cons

    If working in the construction field, may be extremely difficult to have a work life balance (although you get paid well for being in the field)>

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more training once you are a new hire. There's a philosophy of throw the new people into the fire, and hopefully they manage.

    I have been working at Zachry Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, while they last.

    Cons

    Management at most sites are hispanic. Not a problem until they start hiring people based on race. Hiring office people who are hispanic even when they are unable to do the job they are hired to do. Other races are told to pick up the slack and receive disaplinary actions for minor things, when Hispanic insubordination and mistakes are completely overlooked. It'seems a very political place. They talk safety but everything is done just so they can say they did it. Nothing is done correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be held accountable for doing what they are hired to do. Corporate management needs to take a step down and look at what's going on. The company is losing a lot of good people, and hard workers because of this.

    None that I can determine.

    Some of the most arrogant people I have ever worked with or for. Seemed as though I was back in high school with all the back biting and games these supposed adults generated. Very dissapointing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who you have working for you.
