    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth. Great opportunity to learn and challenge myself while getting the support from my manager. Great group of employees who are high-performers and proud of what they build
    Company leadership responds well to criticism and always looks for ways to improve

    Cons

    Demanding work schedule at times, though this is a point the company leadership is trying to improve

    Advice to Management

    Continue your work to create a sustainable work-life balance and a more flexible environment/culture

    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Strong performance and trust are rewarded with "stretch assignments" and more opportunities to prove yourself

    - Smart, high-performing employees who take pride in what they do and being the best

    - Lots of exposure to and interaction with executive leadership

    Cons

    Leadership is making a marked effort to create a more flexible culture with more emphasis on work-life balance, but the construction industry will always be schedule driven so at times you work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your work to promote a sustainable work-life balance and a more flexible environment/culture

    Lots of opportunities for both horizontal movement and vertical growth. They've really stepped up their game with their employee engagement efforts.

    Invite more upward feedback, rather than just giving it downwards.

    I worked at Clark Construction Group full-time

    Pros

    Free concert tickets in DC area. Great reputation. Complex, interesting projects. Looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Very difficult work/life balance. Not recommended for families with young children, particularly working moms. Intimidation-based management. No collaboration. No mentorship.

    Advice to Management

    Think critically about corporate culture and take steps to bring culture into the current day and age. "Old Boys' Club" will not compete against other employers in 2018 and beyond. Actually train managers to be effective managers. Look critically and humbly at high turnover rates and determine where the organization is culpable and how to fix it.
