    I have been working at Granite as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits. Good service managers even though they are bounded by GE corporate and can't act on their own.

    Cons

    Unable to advance in the company. Contract employee with benefits but not able to receive any salaried employee benefits like college reimbursement or paid time off. Pay increase schedule is dictated by GE. Nickel and dime you to death. Most people receiving raises each year totaling $0.25-$0.75. Work is extremely light most years hard to earn a living wage working 3-6 months a year. Literally no upward mobility in the company and those that are chosen to advance are picked based off a** kissing and brown nosing instead of hard work and ability.

    Make salaries transparent! Otherwise employees distrust you!

    Pros

    Best pay in the industry, employer provided tools and training, management is usually pretty quick to fix issues, good safety culture

    Cons

    1st quarter of the year is usually pretty slow so you spend a lot of time at home waiting for work. Work sites are usually pretty remote so if you need a big city to feel comfortable, it might not be for you.

    I have been working at Granite as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There can be a very good amount of optional down time or ferlo. The actual work is exremley fun o if you are mechanically inclined.

    Cons

    There can be a good amount of unwanted downtime and furlough. Hierarchy of the company's management structure. As with any other job it's not about what you can do about who you know. Call text and personal connections to take you farther in this company then actual subject matter expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Resource managers or regional managers need to have a lesser number of employees they are responsible for. This would solve many of the complaints from the field employees.
