    Pros

    The company is consistently going above and beyond to take care of its employees and clients. Work hard, contribute to the team and you will be rewarded accordingly. The company provides you with the tools and resources needed to succeed, including training that is available year-round for you to attend. Senior management is easy to get in touch with and is always open to new ideas to help improve the business.... Overall awesome company to work for, with a lot of growth and opportunity for those who are highly motivated.

    Cons

    It’s a fast-moving company, if you aren't motivated to work hard and improve yourself it might not be the best place for you.

    Pros

    Great company, feels like family.

    Cons

    Chicago and construction politics go hand in hand. More so on the higher levels not so much on the entry levels.

    I have been working at F.H. Paschen full-time

    Pros

    All employees are given a lot of opportunity which allows the cream to rise to the top. Best employees are given the freedom to continue to excel at what they are already doing as well as move the company forward. Very good standing / long term relationship with a lot of Chicago Owners and Subcontractors. Expanding into a variety of new markets to further diversify and strengthen the company.

    Cons

    Work hard play hard mentality is not for everyone. The "Paschen Way" is not for everyone. High level of work production and quality is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower employees and hold them accountable.
