    I worked at Wight & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Wight & Company is client focused and management understands what it takes to keep employees singularly focused on the client's experience. Engaged Owner, top-flight Group Presidents, collaborative work environments and great benefits all combine to develop young talent and energize the employees.

    Cons

    Occasional disregard of the value the construction group brings to the design/build process. No design is perfect. No "build" is perfect. But the synergies created through a dedicated and focused project team can get the project as close to perfect as is possible.

    Wight is, first and foremost a world class design organization and this single "con" does not argue that at all. The construction group constantly strives to deliver world class PROJECTS, and that's where the focus sometimes falls away.

    Advice to Management

    I am proud to have worked at Wight for thirteen years. It's awesome to see the growth of the design group through acquisition and to hear about the ongoing successes of the construction team. This is not an easy business to be in but Wight & Company has solved the equation through "obsessive attention to quality, detail and speed."

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wight & Company (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy to talk to Kathy Prock (HR). She is interested in knowing you and your personality. next step is to meet with managers. Our conversation was very informal in that the typical interview questions were not asked. Her job is to weed out applicants to make it to the next round of interviews.
