    I have been working at Granite Construction

    Pros

    Good health insurance. Healthcare is 100% covered by the company for those who make less than 60k and they cover half the deductible. We have care.com and the company covers 10 emergency days for coverage. They take a real initiative to grow women in construction. Good management team who does not micromanage and cares about your career. Working amongst other high performing professionals so you have a team you can count on. Granite is a safety culture through and through. They live safety in the office and in the field.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a little stressful during the busy season. No flexible schedules or ability to work from home.

    I have been working at Granite Construction full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Granite does a wonderful job helping employees achieve career goals. Their in house training programs are impactful and actually enjoyable. They also value their employees and will help find other opportunities in a different division potentially if a move is necessary for personal reasons. The company does truly believe in their core values and code of ethics.

    Cons

    They are not as competitive as other contractors in terms of salary, but the benefits and overall work management is worth more than a salary boost.
