      Good Company but Culture Varies by Office

      Apr 30, 2021 - Senior Project Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Depending on which office and region you work in, you will have the opportunity and flexibility to perform your job your way, have access to many different programs, softwares and other technologies as you could possibly want. The freedom this company gives their employees is unique compared to other large GC’s. This is probably one of the best and most progressive GC’s out there, and they are constantly thinking forward in pursuit of their mission.

      Cons

      Depending on which office and region you work in or transfer to, you may experience the opposite of everything above. It’s unfortunate that the culture can vary so much by office, especially with the more established offices.

      Generally a good company and culture, but pay less than others in the industry

      Apr 23, 2021 - Senior Project Engineer in Dallas, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Took early action during COVID pandemic to implement safety/mask/distancing policies and support remote work - Benefits are better than average for the construction industry - Regular company events (note: suspended for COVID) - Generally supportive of role changes to make sure people are doing work they're interested in

      Cons

      - Compensation is less than average for the industry - "Flat organization"/"Title-less company" mentality that is preached does not extend to performance reviews and compensation discussions (your title can hard cap your pay increase, despite how well you may have performed)

      Pros

      It is a good company overall. With good core values.

      Cons

      People that are in leadership positions only because of years they have been in the company, not based on their merit nor the ability to be a leader.

      Pros

      Great experience so far. More freedom to manage in your own style than other firms.

      Cons

      Along with freedoms to manage your own way comes inconsistency between projects on how they are managed, expectations, defined roles, systems used etc.

      Pros

      welcoming office environment, promotes growth, fun group of people to work with.

      Cons

      Upper management seemed to hand pick who they wanted in professional growth trainings and programs. Many employees would express interest in advancing their careers but only few were picked without explanation of why.
