    Pros

    Granite has good opportunities for learning and interesting work. Granite promotes learning both estimating and project management. Hands on company.

    Cons

    Salary is on the lower end of the construction industry with responsibilities on the higher end of the construction industry.

    Advice to Management

    Do what's right. We get endless propaganda about how the company honors its people, but when the time comes to do what's right more often then not the company will do what's best for the company. Only after you take the drastic action of quitting or threatening to quit will the company honor your needs.

    Pros

    Stability, "employee development", large network of resources. Coworkers generally happy to be at Granite. Opportunities to move around country. Safety culture is very important at the field level. Pursues a wide range of projects and alternative delivery method. The benefits package seems extensive, although some complain that the health insurance is substandard. Also the opportunity to pursue a career in aggregates, qa/qc, safety or environmental aspects of construction is appealing.

    Cons

    Large overhead, not an aggressive contractor. No formal training of any value. Also people are often promoted just for years of service, not ability or work ethic. Also it often times seems that once promoted some middle managers lose touch with work. Although, this phenomenon is most likely present at other contractors and businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Cut overhead significantly, let branch handle all functions locally, reward more on merit and less on time served. Allow employees the opportunity to evaluate supervisors.
