    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility and opportunity when you show you can do the work and let management know what you're interested in doing. Typically Clark does really big, challenging projects.

    Cons

    Not too many small / quick projects.

    Advice to Management

    Revise bonus structure so that it is smaller, but more frequent.

    I worked at Clark Construction Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Learn a lot quickly, given lots of responsibility right away.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor work life balance, too much work on each employee.

    Advice to Management

    Allow new hires to get involved with learning project management sooner.

    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are given a high level of responsibility early on which leads to quick professional growth and experience in multiple areas within construction management. Strong support network for entry level positions to avoid overworking and to prepare for more responsibility.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, a lot is expected of entry level engineers. Expect a rapid increase in responsibility until you realize what you're capable of. Not necessarily a bad thing.
