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

Pros

Benefits are better than most other staffing companies.
If you have no real skills, do not know how to get along with people, like to take credit for other employees’ suggestions, ideas and work you have found the ideal company to work in. Promotions and job rotations are endless for you.
If you know anyone in middle/upper management and they like you, your future is very promising regardless of your background, training or ability to perform.
One additional benefit , if you follow suggestions, orders or are willing to do whatever is directed by your manager(s) without any of your own thoughts, comments, suggestions, ideas, or concern for any other employees you have a job for life.

Cons

No company is perfect. We all strive to be happily and gainfully work however it appears ALL of the most imperfect people at those imperfect companies are hired as supervisors, managers and especially directors at Granite.
Very little or no career path except to the "good old boy system" or friends recommend by upper management---regardless if they have the basic skills for the job or not.

Advice to Management

Do not listen to any current employees, former employees or customer comments. Keep doing the same things and do not change as it is working for you.

    I have been working at Granite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of paid down time during the summer and winter months. Good place to start for new graduates as well as former military personnel. GE is quite accessible for other opportunities from within. Pay is okay, lots of overtime. Benefits are solid, a tad expensive though.

    Cons

    A lot of time away from home for field employees. Bureaucracy gets in the way sometimes, can be rather frustrating.

    I have been working at Granite as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Good Benefits, Great Building block

    Cons

    Only a job not a career and management will prevent you from crossing into other fields.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to grow otherwise they'll leave and you'll have lost experience that you've help build. GE Training cost money.
