    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Great company, years and years of experience, very consistent work with a variety of clients, healthy work/life balance, great benefits.

    Cons

    It seems they are trying to gradually phase out the Chicago office, and because of this they struggle to keep young employees. Little to no exposure with other construction firms. Low ceiling for advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with the mentor program, be more transparent about the Chicago office, implement brief training program for job-specific duties.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Crawford Murphy & Tilly as an intern

    Pros

    Prestigious firm, with lots of projects thus a lot of exposure to the industry. Got to see a lot of work. Travel and meet many professionals. Get to document and be involved with as much of project as you show competence for.

    Cons

    Strong individualistic culture. Not much exposure to design. Poor mentorship or advisory program or enforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Involve a mentorship or feedback system with your hires and start the program with goal-setting. That way may ensure you get best out of new hire and that they are bringing their best.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are good to work with however it seems turnover has been high recently. Some upper management will listen to your concerns and do what they can to improve.

    Cons

    Some people are set and have no desire to move offices or travel when needed. One group manager has difficulty talking with thier employees and has caused several good people to leave in two offices. Upper management seems to ignore the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with group managers about thier people skills. Could use some work. Also takes to long to make decisions on personnel moves. Need to be more decisive.
