    I have been working at DPR Construction full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is the best company I’ve ever worked for. They treasure and live by 4 core values. Integrity - Uniqueness - Enjoyment - Ever Forward. When you have a group of people who live that out day to day, there is very little that cannot be accomplished.

    Cons

    Get ready to work hard and be fed well

    Advice to Management

    You’re amazing. Thank you for all you do.

    Pros

    It all starts with the vision and the core values. DPR isn't just an innovative construction company, it's a world class organization that is involved in everything. Doug, Peter and Ron spent a lot of time and enlisted the help of some great minds in and outside of the industry to build something great when they created this company.

    Pay, benefits, employee satisfaction, smart and lean work environments, small company feel even in larger offices, real community involvement, unlimited avenues of career growth, diversity, inclusion, and fun! If you're reading this and you're not having fun at work, you need to do something, and you should expect more.

    No out of town work, don't chase bad work, very selective about who we work with and where we send our people.

    Cons

    Growth always creates new challenges but through constant customer and employee feedback we adapt to each challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Very large company. Quality people

    If you can manage to get their in house recruiters to respond or answer your return calls you might just get hired. They have so many excuses.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new recruiters.
