    Pros

    Good chance to work with diverse crew, practice time management, and learn the "on the ground" side of the business.

    Cons

    Sales was unrealistic about estimating jobs. Crews take great pride in delivering excellent work but the money isn't built in when bidding jobs to do job correctly. Crews and supervisors get dumped on from Superintendents and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver on promises made to new hires, give them training opportunities and prepare them for promotions rather than bringing in outside hires that don't fulfill and just move on to the next job.

    i think it is an ok company to work for. long hours and hard work. takes a lot of time to move up but it is possible

    Cons

    not great pay or benefits....it is long days and it takes time to be recognized for hard work and movement up within the company

    Advice to Management

    i would def offer more incentives..i would also advice you to be more mindful of those who work hard and those who hardly work and promote accordingly
