    I have been working at Bilfinger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've had the opportunity to work for a few different well known organizations and I can honestly say I have never had the wonderful experiences I have thus far at Bilfinger.

    Cons

    I have yet to see a con. Bilfinger is professional and invests in its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction you're heading and continue to invest in your people as you are doing now.

    I have been working at Bilfinger full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally a good group of people to work with and for. Overall good team for the tough challenges in construction and cost engineering. Company is evolving to adapt new and/or current technologies. - North America

    Cons

    Not a lot employee focus in compensation packages and not a lot of commitment to employee development. There lacks enough leadership to both drive the company and prepare future staff for the positions and processes of tomorrow in construction. Current and emerging tech causes struggles for some of the anchored senior staff. - North America

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work employee compensation into the business model that is people based services. Work Life balance is an industry abused concern that needs to be met with technology and better planning. - North America
