    I have been working at Griffith Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In what is arguably the most challenging industry to work in, Griffith Company is adaptable, innovative and open-minded to doing the best for their clients, employees and stakeholders. The company, for better or worse, is always trying to improve. Unfortunately, change takes time and is tedious, especially the way the company is structured. With that being said, there is a system to the madness - from field to office. Upper management (from a field perspective) allows employees to do their work and is always in support mode in assisting with arising issues. Many benefits, growth, professionally challenging opportunities and learning experiences for employees who are willing to do the work, put in the time and contribute to change.

    Cons

    Multiple layers of managers and engineers due to divisions

    Advice to Management

    Hold the "C" players accountable

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Griffith Company (Brea, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone Interview followed by a Group Interview. It was a very easy process and the response time was quick. For the group interview, it was three rounds where you talked to two people from each division.
