    I worked at DPR Construction full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation package, good atmosphere to work, people are friendly an helpful. Interesting highly technical projects.

    Cons

    DPR will work you until you drop, literately, be prepared for very long work hours and very little quality of life outside of work. It is becoming a cult atmosphere, give your life to DPR or leave. Some very high level Sr manager..... one of the worst people I've ever worked for. It took me a solid year to recover after I left, physically, mentally and emotionally.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your roots (DW), the company is moving away from your key values......most of all enjoyment.
