I worked at Balfour Beatty full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People friendly, challenging projects, significant IT infrastructure

Cons

Low mobility for some operation personnel; did not like the way CORPORATE (Not division) handled the release of middle management (including me) after 15 years...

Advice to Management

Look at operational personnel and see what other position they could service in...

    I worked at Balfour Beatty full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company was always involved in very exciting and complicated projects. Always opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    They started to loose focus of the employees after company acquisitions. The employees started to become numbers. Communication between branch offices and company divisions was difficult and guarded.

    Advice to Management

    The only asset a CM has is the employees, don't loose focus.

    People
    Opportunties to help in the Business Development arena
    Central Schedulers who were very good

    Cons

    In 2010, systems were changing due to Balfour Beatty acquiring Barnhart, Inc. Barnhart has just been acquired by one of Balfour Beatty subsiduiary's the year before. So financial systems switched twice in the matter of a few years.
    Marketing struggled a bit to win DOD projects.

    Advice to Management

    Consider in house A/E capability
