Pros

Good people. Not rigid. Experienced construction company. Integrity. Most construction companies require long hours. I don't mind it so much with this company because I am trusted and not micro'd. They are not a hire/ fire company. They invest in their people.

Cons

Some upper management do not communicate well. Lack of advancement. Some good people leave because of lack of advancement.

Advice to Management

Keep Integrity and Honesty as job # 1. Keep evolving quality control. Invest and manage it carefully. Swinerton builds quality buildings, but keep this the highest priority.

    Pros

    A mature well run organization where anyone regardless of job title is able to have their thoughts and concerns addressed in the overall company effort of continual improvement.

    The gossip level is at an absolute minimum by choice - people do not speak bad of each other just to make conversation - extremely professional.

    Cons

    The company is in the construction field and so can be influenced by the overal economy.

    For the core work of the company the employees have great career growth potentional - for those not in core positions the opportunites are much less so.


  2. "Within the construction industry, one of the better companies to work for."

    Pros

    Great benefits, specifically profit sharing and vacation time. Compared to other contractors, a very good company to be employed by.

    Cons

    As with other contractors, work often takes precedence over family. The overall work-life balance is not there, but I think that's as much a factor of the industry as it is the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from Uppermanagment through middle management to general level of employees was poor. Annual performance reviews were often ignored. The division annual review meetings were cancelled and rescheduled multiple times. I don't think the problem was with Executive (Concord) level management, as much as it was with division level or even project level.
