    Pros

    Pay is the best around from what I see. Upper Management is awesome.

    Cons

    Lack of supplies, lower management sucks. Mon-Sat then they give you are hard time if you don't want to work Sunday. You have to pull teeth to get PPE.

    Advice to Management

    Get on top of your safety guy. Get employees the tools and material they need.

    I worked at Flatiron Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is decent compared to other construction companies. Lots to learn if you can find a good mentor or take their web classes.

    Cons

    You'll do well and be treated well if you have connections.. HR and management stick together and favoritism is big. You'll do great if you know someone from a previous working relationship and nepotism is big!!

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to get their head out of the clouds.... Big ego! Do what is right. It's not your job just to protect the company. You'll earn more respect protecting the employee from poor management.

    Pros

    There are some great people that have worked there for a long period of time.

    Leadership has no decision making ability. They sway with the wind and have not stated long term plans. Very few, if anyone outside the Executives understand the companies financial position.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication and make a decision and stick with it.
