  1. "Growth opportunities are available at Centennial."

    I have been working at Centennial Contractors Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Centennial has given me the ability to grow and move up in the company. I started with Centennial in the summer of 1999 as an intern. Since then I have moved my way up into a senior position within the Western Region. Centennial values, and encourages, an employee’s continued education; as they have supported me in obtaining my PE, LEED AP and PMP. They also provide assistance in maintaining these certifications. If you are willing to work hard, want to learn, and embrace the company’s culture, you will grow.

    Cons

    No cons to report; no job is always perfect. I do know that when challenges arise, the team I work with each day is there to help.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the employees; they are what make Centennial the contractor of choice for our clients.

    I worked at Centennial Contractors Enterprises (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including investment in its employees through training, college courses and seminars.

    Expectation set very high - hard for women to excel in the construction industry due to physical limitations of some.

    I have been working at Centennial Contractors Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Tight knit office atmosphere. Feels like a second family.
    2. Management encourages personal career growth. If there's a certification, training or even a degree you're seeking management will help you reach your goals.
    3. A healthy work life and home life balance is important to the company. My manager in particular goes out his way to make sure everything is going good both on the job and off. That sort of management style is much appreciated.
    4. Corporate issued policies and procedures are very well written and all inclusive. It makes life easier when you have guidelines to 'lead the way'.
    5. Good compensation and benefits package.
    6. The safety culture at Centennial is top notch. Many contractors out there preach safety but lack follow through. Centennial has checks and balances in place to ensure all our crews go home safely to their families everyday.
    7. The wide array of jobs and scope we cover is very different than most contractors. At Centennial you may build a server room, do site work, large electrical/mechanical projects, tenant fit-out work, roofing, paving, secured access projects and on and on. This has to be my favorite thing about working at Centennial. There's never a dull moment. You'll never get caught up in the monotony that other construction managers at other companies deal with day in and day out.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say. No job is going to be peachy 100% of the time. But you will not find a better place or company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The restructuring of the employee award program is a welcomed change. Employees will perform better when they feel their hard work is recognized.

    Pros

    Great place to work. There's a true feeling that upper management cares about its employees. Examples include the incredible commitment to safety and the participation in community events. I've read negative reviews posted on this about the company on this site and feel they must be from people who were terminated because of performance. The average tenure of employees is very high.

    Cons

    Like most company's Centennial needs to find ways to combat the high costs of insurance. The company pays a good portion of the increases and the employees pay a small share of the increases.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees, keep communicating with everyone - the new monthly Eletter is great. Please keep acknowledging employees - that means a lot.
