    Pros

    Some Pros you will benefit from working at Alares:

    - Use of Procore Technology software. this is A++++ and not found at many companies.
    - Large enough to get a $10M project completed, yet small enough to care about all their employees.
    - They foster a Vertical growth environment, but allow their employees to steer there own path to success.
    - You'll always be a name to the company and not just a number.
    - You'll be able to wear many hats throughout your role whether you're a PM, APM, or Super. Everyone has a hand in the process here at Alares.
    - Very fair and competitive salary
    - BCBS health coverage since 2017
    - Above and beyond basic vaca/sicktime/PTO time. A++++

    Cons

    They deal with strictly Federal work and more specifically VA hospitals. They certainly can deliver in that arena, but are hesitant to reach out and compete on typical public/private projects as of course profit margins are slim. Keep in mind this is a veteran based company and with that comes its Pros & Cons like any company in the construction industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
