    Pros

    GPI really views their employees as assets, and they treat you well. From the benefits, to the end-of-the-year bonuses, GPI does its best to make all employees feel valued, and like they have a share in the company.

    Cons

    The unpredictable nature of the highway construction industry is the biggest downside to the job! Many employees in the company cannot be employed year-round because of this.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have much advice to give to our upper-level management. I think our managers are doing a great job!
