    I worked at Baker Concrete full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits; promote fast if you work hard; Dan Baker is very humble and very involved. Baker tried hard to keep the staff robust through the downturn but they were up against a changing economy. They offered to relocate me out of state which was more than I expected.

    Cons

    Construction is a tough industry. Baker has the same challenges any construction company does.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, I know of no other form contractor that offers such a feeling of professionalism.

    Pros

    We are a well-respected industry leader.
    Our founder, Dan Baker, is still very involved and seems to sincerely care about the well-being of his employees.
    We are the largest concrete contractor in the country and construct a vary wide range of project types. Some of those types, such as football stadiums, high-rises, LNG tanks, etc., can be very technically challenging, pride-inducing, and rewarding.

    Cons

    Few, and it would really depend on the individual as to what they were.
    In some ways, the company maintains out-dated, rather than modern close-to-cutting-edge, practices.
    I WOULD like to see our harrassment policy changed to go beyond what is strictly defined by the law as harrassment so as to define homosexuals as also being "protected" just like women, minorites, and religions are.
    And no, I am not gay.

    Advice to Management

    Not really sure on this one....
