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

    Pros

    Great career opprtunity to learn from scratch to a very high level in a very small time. One gets to work at various levels and the company gives opportunity to lead even at a very young age. Less internal politics. One gets full credit for his work, even in front of top management. Work ethics is high. I learned the most here. I could easily use that experience and get hired at a higher level in a bigger organization.

    Cons

    Nepotism and favoritism were the biggest problems. Top management sometimes would not listen to lower level people and would ignore the real stories. Because of favoritism, wrong people would get into wrong positions and would run the company the wrong way. This led to the company's business downfall in Australia and US, simultaneously.

    Advice to Management

    Engineering is engineering, but they should get some advanced level management lessons from Harvard or similar places to understand how to run a company when it becomes big. Other similar big organizations are not stupid that they send their executives for such trainings time to time.

    I worked at Forge Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was fair for my position. i got to travel and see some of the country. i learned a good deal about industrial construction

    Cons

    Executive management had no clue what actually went on at a base company level. they made promises to clients that were impossible just to get jobs, and then grunt employees were blamed for missing impossible deadlines

    Advice to Management

    management should become more involved in the company. they need to spend some more time learning what the labor force actually goes through.
