Straightforward, stand-up people to work with. Trust is given and reciprocated relatively well. Company is getting away from smaller gas station projects and looking to move forward with larger... brown fields projects. There's potential within the company, and upward movement can be expected if commitment, passion, and reliability is shown. Over the past year, I have personally branched out from a simple field technician, to a draftsperson, to an estimator for our largest projects. One cannot expect the same rate of upward movement in a multinational corporation. I've talked to several of the subs, and the company IS reliable. That's why we keep bringing in work. The labs that we work with have been fighting for our business. Lastly, the powers that be will work with your schedule. If I put in the extra time and effort, I can slip out of the office for an hour or two for something family related, or even to surf (the office is 2 min from the beach). A month or two off to travel has even been brought up and approved by management, once the timing is right with our projects.
The owner will often a hand me a large project, and explain what he wants in 2-3 sentences. This can be a lot to chew off at once. He likes to call it "baptism by fire". Fortunately, my project... manager is patient and understanding. If I feel surmounted by a large project, he will take the time to relate it to me and break things down into smaller steps. I get paid about the average salary for my position, without benefits included. Nonetheless, owner has supplemented this by paying for my EIT study materials (which are surprisingly costly), and offering to pay for a work truck. Owner also mentioned funding a masters program with a five year commitment to DES.
Advice to Management
Between the owner, PG, and field manager, things are going pretty well. That's all I can really say at this point.
