    Pros

    Coworkers are very helpful. We looked out for each other and helped each other make it through the day.

    Cons

    Veterans take advantage of new female workers. You get sexually harassed and little sligh comments are made and when you bring it to the appropriate party they sweep it under the rug. Especially if the person you are reporting is about to retire. They will never mess up their time for a new employee with only 4 years in

    Pros

    Secured job. Steady pay. Acceptable stocks and 401K.

    Cons

    Unless going through a supervisory position, the pay is minimum. Very low bonus (close to none) and even the progression is less than a union job. A lot of responsibilities and very low rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Need to revamp the management systems. Managers need more engagement and interest in employees for development.

    Pros

    Steady pay, low risk of termination

    Cons

    Union! Usual union guy with ovet time will make 20 to 30 % more than their manager two bands higher . Don't take me wrong im all abut high pay for rhe union but level of professionalism , educatuon and maners of these people is worst than homeless . As a manager you have no controll over union , to the point they will laugh at you if you ask them to do something while they binge watch their shows on YouTube during work hours - for months at a time .

    One of the subs sold me a coned joke that took me few minutes to understand and then laugh a sad laugh:

    Q:What is blue and white and sleeps 6?
    A: coned union truck .
    Btw it is very true , that if you knock on coned truck you will most likely wake up somebody.

     On other hand as a manager you have to cofess from every hour , to the point single deadline miss will show up as a fail on your review.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of 70s work ethic mentality , its been 50 years of evolution and you have stagnated, your approach is wrong, do company a favor and retire after 30 years not after 50 of service on average .

     You have to change union habits ahd hold them accountable for their performance . It is discuraging to be a manager when your first line site guy highschool drop off makes more than general manager. All this makes a culture of laziness, acusation , retaliation etc i can go for days with these . Your deparment is the least diverse and it promotes racism and Trump like values .Additionally, please take controll of your goodall boys , your comany is rotten from within -just got another corporate communication on $4m employee fraud .

    As just voted on departnent meeting 50% of total central construction management don't feel valuable or would recommend ther jobs to a friend .

    This can be an amazing company , but you will drive it to rubble , makes me sad .
