    I worked at Cumming (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Terrific personalities. Willingness to assist at any time to get needed answers. Great opportunity to work offsite

    Cons

    None. I enjoyed working with my marketing contact and would do so again, no question about it.

    I worked at Cumming part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun culture, good pay, lots of perks. They will challenge you.

    Cons

    Don;t expect to last long if you are between projects. Not enough support for dealing with difficult clients. Upper Management cares, but seems too busy to really do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Get some support so you can focus.

    I worked at Cumming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cumming is honest and professional, and not too big, or too small. They are growing and can provide job opportunities from Hawaii and North America to Europe and the Middle East.

    Cons

    They are not quite big enough to have a lot of job slots on offer at any given time, and the fee-based CM industry's clients require their hired consultants to keep them happy and that means never leaving a project mid-stream.

    Advice to Management

    Open a Salt Lake City office so I could work with them again.

    I have been working at Cumming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When first approached with the opportunity to join Cumming, I had been with the same employer for over 8 years, quite happy, and not looking for a change. However, as I learned more about Cumming’s internal management, culture, and growth projections for 2020…I found myself eager for a new challenge. Now having been at Cumming for over 4 years…I can look back with confidence to say that I made a great move. Some of the “Pros” of working at Cumming include: A work hard / play hard atmosphere, advancement opportunities for entrepreneurial & motivated employees, rewarding, fun, energetic, challenging, and the ability to collaborate with the best and the brightest talent in the business.

    Cons

    Cumming continues to grow at a rapid pace. In order to maintain their company culture while also achieving revenue goals, change is necessary. If you are an employee who fears change…then Cumming is not a fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the 2020 vision…and continue to invest in your greatest asset…your employees.

    I have been working at Cumming full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    With a college-bred construction management degree in hand I was poised to get to work for a top notch general contractor until I heard about Cumming Construction Management. Nearly 8 years later (some in my generation would consider that a lifetime with a single employer) I am still here and thanks to great co-workers, an entrepreneurial spirit, interesting projects, competitive salary and a professional yet flexible environment, I don't plan on going anywhere.

    Cons

    Everyone wants cheaper and better benefits. Cumming works to be as competitive as they can given the company's size.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing to continue the growth of a relatively young company, in very old industry, at an admirable pace. Keep focus on the people (clients and employees).

    I have been working at Cumming full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have fully enjoyed the 8 years working here at Cumming Construction Management, Inc. There is a great balance of professionalism and fun team building events. We obviously get the job done with the number of happy repeat clients and strive for the best. This company has been a big part of my life so far and am excited for what it brings in the future!

    Cons

    Paid holidays, PTO (flex days) are slim and benefits are a bit pricey if claiming more than yourself.
    Not everyone participates in team building events, which can come off as not wanting to be a "team member."

    Advice to Management

    Remember to treat others the way you want to be treated.
    Get more people to participate in office activities, especially the higher-ups! They are leaders and are missing out!

    I have been working at Cumming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Relaxed, fun and friendly environment - work hard / play hard mentality.
    - Good fellow-employees - Everyone works well together and is truly part of a Team.
    - C-Level Management is down to earth and easily approachable (no big egos).
    - Fruit, coffee, monthly birthday lunches, Social Fridays, summer and holiday parties, giving back and volunteer events throughout the year!

    Cons

    Some offices have different working environments and personalities than others. It would be nice to have everyone on the same page and to really encourage the TEAM environment across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within and reward your employees! We really enjoy and appreciate the fun social perks you provide.

    I have been working at Cumming full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above average pay. Beer in the office. There can be some fun and generous and fun events. You get to work on exciting projects.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Senior management with no formal training or even a Bachelors degree. Unethical practices are the only thing that is consistent. The compensation and bonus program is unfair with no real parameters. All of the bonuses, vacation time allotment, salary and benefits are not transparent. There is no consistency and each person is basically given what their hiring manager believes that specific person should get. Employees from the UK are favored over the other employees. Billable time is more important than everything else. No flex time - at all. You are looked down upon if you are a few minutes late even when you worked late the day before. Benefits are expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with the education and qualifications necessary to lead a company. Have set standards with minimal exceptions.

    Pros

    If you want challenge and ask for it, they will give you a shot. They are not afraid to let young people take on big roles.

    Cons

    If you don't fight for your compensation and position, you won't get ahead. They will reward ambition, but if you are a doer and not a seller, you will be stuck until you sell yourself higher.

    Advice to Management

    A clearer org structure would be great.
