    Good Company but needs work

    Jun 19, 2022 - Project Controls Engineer in Knoxville, TN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of career growth opportunity Above average pay in the industry Good Mentor program Fair amount of Employee Resource Groups

    Cons

    Lack of a formal Rotation program makes it hard for graduate hires to experience different roles/postions needed on the jobsite. Employees must stay in a position for 18 months prior to trying a new role which feels like an eternity if you've stopped learning and/or have been unhappy in your current role. Not many opportunities for employees to attend tech conferences/expos to keep up to date with the latest technologies in the industry.
