Pros

They have excellent benefits and compensation. The senior management lets you in on what their strategy is, and keeps you up to date. I rarely if ever feel out of the loop at this company. I think they keep the correct people for the job, for the most part, and know when that persons time is up in his or her position, when its time to let them go. There are good values to go by, and management sticks to them and references them heavily in meetings. Most employees are happy to be working here and it shows in the amount of hours they put in.

Cons

There is little emphasis on work life balance. While higher ups state that its ok if you go to the gym, or leave early, as long as you get the work done, i feel that you are still looked down upon if you aren't going 100 miles an hour all the time. You work long hours and i feel like the one time you leave early because you can, you get looked down upon for doing so. Also, vacations are tough to schedule because of the projects that are in progress. It takes a good amount of planning to actually leave work for a week.

Advice to Management

Treat good employees well, and they will stick around. So far so good!

    Pros

    I like the fact that as an ESOP company Shawmut management keeps you updated on the strategy of the company as well as the financial status of all the different groups. Shawmut does a great job at adjusting to different peoples career goals and defining a career path that meets both SDC's and the employees path. They are more than willing to let empolyees move around and try different positions.

    Cons

    Often time the wrong people get recognized, rewarded, and promoted for their work. It often times seems like the complainers get rewarded vs. the employees who do their job and plug forward.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to reward the right people for their hard work. The employees who put in the extra time and effort should be the ones who are rewarded.


  2. "Good people - Employee owned makes a difference"

    Shawmut Design and Construction is a great company to work for. People really want to produce a great product and please clients. This is something that runs from the top down.

    Working long hours and going full speed all the time is the norm. It can be tough not to get caught up in the flow and maintaining balance can be a challenge.

    Communication with the employees is good and helps keep everyone up to date with company performance and goals - keep that going
