    I worked at Adolfson & Peterson full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This will obviously heavily depend on your project team. - interesting projects - intelligent management team - decent pay - opportunities to get involved outside of work AP Gulf States is a great place to work. The leadership team does a great job of not only listening and understanding the needs and wants of the project teams, but also takes the time to visit sites and remain involved throughout the project....

    Cons

    It’s construction, so be ready for some long hours. Depending on your project, weekend work will most likely be a reality. If you’re a PE or assistant super, the bad news is you’ll be the first to get signed up for weekend work. Also DFW is a big sprawling area, so you could be commuting long distances.

    Advice to Management

    Site visits by the mgmt team are key, everyday the team works hard to put together complex projects and most of the teams are proud to show their hard work off. I would be disappointed if the leadership never cared to view the jobs they oversee.

    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Aurora, CO

    I worked at Adolfson & Peterson full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Nice people. Busy work and a lot of hands on. Great culture with the exception of a few areas that need to be improved upon. Benefits are amazing!!

    Cons

    Like to hire new employees rather than promote existing. And also task employees above their pay level but not change their title or pay. Good way to lose people who have been hard working and done everything and then some that was asked of them.

    Advice to Management

    Management or rather higher levels of management need to learn manners as well as etiquette when speaking to others. Do not speak down to others as if you know everything.
