    I worked at Graniterock full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Unmatched health/dental/vision benefits
    -401K Matching is stellar
    -Sick leave and vacation policy is amazing
    -Most people at the company are tremendous
    -Very professional

    Cons

    -Company structure changed after CEO died unexpectedly, almost impossible to move up.
    -No longer an open door to the CEO, need to go through management to address things, which is hard if your problem is with management
    -When you move into a new position they don't increase you pay for a year into the position, so you get extra responsibility for a year without commensurate compensation for it, assuming you can get into a new position.

    Advice to Management

    More of the big-wigs need to retire to make room for the rising generation of employees.

    I have been working at Graniterock full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All the team members i encounter and directly work with have made my experience here a great one. I haven't woken up and felt like it is a drag to go to work. I enjoy what I do, and helping with big or small problems. We all have different jobs and tasks to do. So it does take a good running team to accomplish that.

    Cons

    I guess depending on the job you have. Cons could be night work. Those hours are tough. But work has to be done on time sensitive projects. And road repairs often occur at night. Which working in this industry you know that comes with the territory at times. The company strives really hard to make this a family environment, and encourages growth and continual learning. So i havent really seen many or any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage, lead, help build up Team members. Keep the accountability there for all team members and managers. Continue to show appreciation to your teams.

    Pros

    No company is perfect but most of management tries to take care of their people and it shows in good morale, recognition, and the benefits. Healthcare is completely free, they have profit sharing, bonuses, and even parties that you family can attend. The company gives out a lot of swag too. I feel recognized when I do good things and like part of a team when I mess up and people around me step up to help fix the issue.

    Cons

    Although getting better, the company's construction department is still operating very seperatly from the rest of the company. Very few directives are top down from the top management which is good sometimes but things like safety, environmental, training etc aren't consistent across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize more processes across the company, stop letting managers do it 100 different ways.

    Pros

    Everyone is incredibly willing to teach you. As an intern in the construction field, you get to be very involved in the work, as long as you just ask!

    Cons

    Construction might not be the industry for you if you don't like to start work early in the morning

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
