    I worked at China Construction America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A job, with salary and insurance benefits

    Cons

    The management does not respect their people. Employee turnover is fast and no one cares. They hire new people but don't try to retain them, but only ask them to work long hours. If you make suggestions to the company, they will not listen but ask you just finish your job. You cannot even think of working with this company, since the contract says they can terminate you any time without reason and without termination pay.

    Advice to Management

    None, since they will not listen

    Pros

    Big company, big projects.. learning depends on the team you are working with.

    Cons

    The company is dominated by Chinese employees. It is not a place where international students of nationality, other that China should work. Because they rarely sponsor that too only Chinese students.

    Pros

    They will start you off with a decent pay rate and the benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Too many to list, This company isn't somewhere you will want to work for very long. They are very unethical and never give raises. They promote from outside the company and never look from within. A very common complaint in their corporate office is that the absolute silence they make you endure. No one is ever talking, smiling, or happy. There is no music and no one ever looks happy. It's like walking into the office of the walking dead. My advise is to stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Promote Women into management. Encourage happiness and smiling!

    Pros

    Not many. The benefits are alright and they do offer PRO that you are looked down upon for taking.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They ignore issues and brush off complaints. If you file a complaint about any issue, they will turn it around and make you the problem. You should look elsewhere, I am. They will fail on the Pulaski Skyway project. Too much corruption and coverups.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with new people. Stop taking on other companies rejects and hire some new fresh employees. Also, follow your own code of conduct!

    Pros

    Benefits, fair compensation and a tranquil environment,

    Cons

    No crossover team environment. Poor communication skills both internal and external. Senior management need to be more responsive and care about the well being of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better internal communication. More timely response to employees needs and wants.
