    I worked at Gulf Interstate Engineering full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good not great benefits, competitive salary, big scale projects, good work-life balance, 9/80 schedule, a leader in the industry, fun social events

    Cons

    All groups are very silo'd, future of the company and its owners are very uncertain, lack of top-down communication, nepotism is the rule not the exception

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the company's vision over the next five to ten years. Be careful with the level of nepotism. It seems to be getting out of hand.

    I worked at Gulf Interstate Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Management treats employees well, benefits were good for the size of the company (compared to competitors). Reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    Opportunities were a little bit limited for long term career prospects. Training for growth with job skills wasn't prevalent. Advancement opportunities were slow and tough to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Identify younger employees that like the company and its culture and establish a track for advancement and management training to retain them long term. Focus on long term talent retention instead of just performing current work well (push for employee/department goal setting and accountability each year).
