    Great place to learn, but not to grow your career

    Pros

    - Fast-paced environment allows you to learn a lot very quickly. - Good benefits (training, health insurance, company social events, time off, etc.)

    Cons

    - Clear division between the local employees and the Spanish. - Obvious lack of communication/understanding between HQ in Madrid and the US on various things. - More of a focus on "being seen" at work, instead of the actual work accomplished. - The only real way to move up in the organization is to move to a different location. - It can be hard to get feedback from management.

    Pros

    Excellent insurance, holiday structure and PTO. A ton of opportunity for growth if you are willing to travel/move to a new city. The company provides a significant amount of support for learning and sharpening your business acumen.

    Cons

    Work can be chaotic with quickly shifting priorities. The company is spread out into multiple businesses and at times those various business do not communicate well. The company is trying to work on that level of communication but they still need to tweak their direction.

    I'd give Cintra 4.5 stars - great, but not perfect

    Oct 25, 2016 - Executive Assistant in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Incentive based bonuses for employees which are generous 2. 16 standard holidays each year (paid leave for employees) which isn't common today with American companies (lucky to get maybe 8) 3. Private language tutoring provided (Spanish for English speaking natives & English for Spanish speaking natives) - paid by the company 4. Opportunities to move positions within the company, because of Ferrovial Grupo and all of its affiliates which are multi-national and diverse - as they often promote from within, and assist with the moving expenses & legal processes required to transfer from one location to the other, especially when moving to a new country. 5. Work-life balance. They expect you to work hard/ diligently, but are also understanding with you taking time for family & personal obligations as needed. 6. Continuing education training each year for every full-time employee (chosen by employee, then approved & paid by Cintra) 7. Fully stocked kitchen provided at no cost (including foods for breakfasts, snacks, & lunches, bottled waters, sodas, teas, Keurig machine, and multiple espresso machines) 8. Financially strong, stable company - which provides a sense of job security

    Cons

    1. Communication between departments, and between job levels (executive to management to worker bee) has improved, but still needs a lot more improvement. 2. There's a lot of last minute changes or final plans made, which can be difficult to juggle when it impacts multiple parties with already full schedules to work out. 3. The language barrier between Spaniards and Americans can be a challenge. ... Americans often feel 'left out' with the majority of management/ executive levels being Spanish & speaking primarily in their native tongue.

    Pros

    The benefits at Cintra were great. The health plan was good with much of the premuim paid by the company, 17 days vacation and 15 or so public holidays, with a week of those around Christmas. The job duties were varied, with plenty of responsibility, if wanted.

    Cons

    I cannot think of anything bad to say about the company. I enjoyed working there and thought that other people did too

    Pros

    Great people, collegial atmosphere, interesting work. People here work hard and are generally very engaged in their work. Overall very positive

    Cons

    Not being fluent in Spanish really puts one at a disadvantage within this company. Sometimes the intern work is tedious.
