    Pros

    Good people, good benefits, room to grow and the group is there to support, help or encourage everyone especially when there's problems on the job.

    Cons

    With my experiences working at other companies and here, there are always your normal construction challenges that you would have at every firm. It's how you look at them and ask people around you who have gone through them before and provide guidance in getting you through yours.

    Advice to Management

    I think the upper management cares and pushes there employees in making them be the best they can be. I have had a great relationship with my upper management who have helped me tremendously throughout my career.

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

    Pros

    I have been with Deacon for over ten years and have had the privilege of working in more then just one office. Deacon has been a great place to work and has afforded me with the opportunity to grow in the industry without restriction. I‎t is a place that if you are truly willing to put the time into your career you will never be held back, they always encourage growth.

    All of the employees are great and are always willing to help one another when needed. I‎t is more of a culture then a job.

    Nothing is perfect and like any other company there are bumps in the road. One of the things I truly love about this company is when the road does get bumpy you are not alone, you have their full support.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow to change process over the 5 offices due to the unification that is maintained. Some offices are more willing to accept changes in technology.

    Advice to Management

    I love the changes that have been made and achieved recently, keep up the good work.

    Deacon has provided opportunity and rewarded for effort and dedication.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a relationship and be relatable to the employees.

    I worked at Deacon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. They never tell you how you are doing! They terminate you just for being disabled! They are not a very good employer.

    Cons

    They discriminate against people with disabilities. They are very unaccommodating for people who are disabled! They are unfair and unjust.

    Advice to Management

    You should treat everyone fairly! You shouldn’t discriminate against people just because they have a disability!

    These allegations are not true and we take this matter very seriously. Deacon does not discriminate against any form of disabilities or for any other reasons.

    I worked at Deacon full-time

    Pros

    I truly don't have anything positive to say about working for deacon anymore a few of the people there are really good people but mostly the employees have turned over so much there's none of the old ones left

    Cons

    As I said typical Corporation the bottom line is all that matters they let people go that have served them well for a millennium all the while keeping new younger people that are not making as much money I believe that was the reason for my termination

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people not like a number we all have lives stick to your core values you know that sign that's on the desk when you first walk in

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

    Pros

    Deacon stays focused on what they know, yet, always searching for new and innovative ways to be a better company. From support staff to management, everyone works relentlessly in the trenches to achieve a common goal.

    Cons

    It would be nice to work more digitally to facilitate a fluid workflow.

    "Decent Company But Terrible Management"

    I worked at Deacon full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very respectful, accommodating and easy to work with. The work life balance is good if you're not in the field.

    Cons

    All of there systems are light years behind the rest of the industry.
    The training was terrible (non existent) but it has gotten a better.
    Extremely high turnover. Management doesn't seem to know how to interview/hire people.
    Upper management is too busy putting out fires to actually manage the company and their employees, probably why so many people have left.
    Company culture is talked about when you are hired but doesn't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some actual experienced managers who know how to successfully run a company and manage their people. Maybe provide professional training/classes so upper management can grow and become successful. You are managing people, not projects. Don't be scared of change.
