    Pros

    Great company name to have on your resume. Get the experience and network your contacts and find a better rounded company

    Cons

    Work comes before everything, making friends with the right people will advance you faster than your actual work standard will. Not compensated for the long hrs and extra work that is expected of you for the slackers that have befriend the manager/supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    It's a place of employment not a meet and greet. Advancement should be based on work ethic not after hr parties and weekend meetups.

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

    Pros

    High profile projects. Great people and project teams.

    Cons

    No work life balance whatsoever. Vacation and sick days are discouraged. Generally overworking employees and not paying them enough. They do not care about their people.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! You go to recruit and preach the culture having a work life balance yet it is frowned upon to have a life outside of Clark. TAKE CARE OF YOUR PEOPLE.

    I have been working at Clark Construction Group full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic people--intelligent, personable, young, passionate. Lots of opportunity based completely on performance and quality of work. Very stable company. Leadership is very strategic in how they choose projects and prepare for the future.

    Cons

    Not enough staff to handle work load on job sites and in corporate departments.
     Only 2 weeks vacation for your first 5 years, then 3 weeks until 15 years. Salary slightly less than industry average. Male dominated (as are most construction companies).

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on acquisition of work in order to staff up jobs appropriately so employees aren't overworked. Be open to altering benefits like vacation & salary to retain people. Make sure women are treated fairly on job sites.

    Pros

    Great network building for future jobs

    Cons

    Extremely competitive environment.
    On site weekend work is mandatory and typically 1-2 weekends a month, 7am-5pm.
    Typical work day is from 7am-6pm for project management staff. 6am to 5pm for field staff.
    Minimal vacation days are provided and vacation is discouraged unless it aligns with your project schedule.
    Projects are heavily staffed with inexperienced new hires out of college.
    Company is mysteriously owned by upper management group but they will not disclose who is part of this ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some sort of work life balance to employees rather than mocking the concept.
