I worked at Gilbane Building Company full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It's a large company so there's a lot to see and do. I think Gilbane affords trainees a great opportunity to learn from the best in the CM industry.

Cons

Since it's so large, it can be unnecessarily bureaucratic. Oftentimes, suggestions for improvements are left in favor of tradition.

    I have been working at Gilbane Building Company as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a young employee I am fortunate enough to be on a massive project surrounded by people with some of the best experience in the industry. Everyone here has been more than willing to help me develop as an employee. I have had the opportunity to become a key asset to the project, even as an intern.

    Cons

    The only bad thing I can say about Gilbane is that they do not have a formalized training program for young employees such as myself. Many major industrial companies have begun rotation programs to train new employees on all parts of the company, but this is non-existent at Gilbane.

    Advice to Management

    Focus quarterly/yearly reviews more on what the employees want to develop themselves on as well as their current performance.
