    Pros

    Bonus program, Large client base and plenty negotiated work, great sub database, nice gym, strong pre con division

    Cons

    Bonus program, review process, too many different systems and processes, Satelite, regional offices, executive team is out of touch, overhead seems high, training, unknowlegeable APM's get promoted to quickly to PM,

    Advice to Management

    Trust your team. Don't let the communication stop at the VP level. Staff below them are missing out on the communication. Bonus supers as well as you bonus PM's

    Pros

    Good compensation package.
    Good company training.
    Company truck option*

    Cons

    * Superintendents expected to start and run projects with no roster, prints, contracts or buyout completed.
    * PM's are Account Managers not Construction Managers. They lack common construction knowledge. (Multiple PM's requested not to attend OAC meetings from clients for they are insulting and lack project knowledge.)
    * No company credit card or gas card.

    Advice to Management

    Close the doors for 5 years then try again. Your choice of Management and Project Managers have killed your reputation in this town.

    Pros

    great support system in terms of on-staff carpenters, laborers & stocked warehouse, great to have the weight of such a big company behind you when negotiating, company has an excellent, well-earned reputation for high quality work.

    Cons

    I've personally experienced several incidents of upper management going back on their word, 'taking one for the team' or being altruist will have you being taken advantage of. It's every man for himself. Leadership is entirely inconsistent - some Sr PMs and VPs are great - attentive, helpful- some are out in left field and make unilateral decisions without consulting people who know what's going on. Teams compete against each other for the same jobs. Communications from ownership is great but disintegrates at VP level (depending upon your sector). Zero effort in any work life balance - in fact, they value only the people who sacrifice all their time to the company.

    Advice to Management

    be mindful that you are not in the weeds with your staff. Consult those who know and don't make assumptions.

    Pros

    Great people - they know how to work hard and play hard together. The company provides autonomy in decision making and they truly trust their employees. They take time to understand your goals and provide career growth opportunities. I love that they stand by the HITT Way and instill the values in every team member that comes on board.

    Cons

    Heavy workload provides a lot of challenges with work-life balance. Daily work attire - wearing a tie.

    Advice to Management

    Keep challenging the status quo to help push our growth

    Pros

    Beautiful office, decent salary. Benefits are okay. There are some good people there, but many that are extremely unethical in their business practices.

    Cons

    Cut throat - constantly have to guard your clients
    Subpar HR Department - Very little knowledge of HR policies for a company of its size.

    Advice to Management

    Train upper management, remove "bonus" system that promotes your company to be cut throat and having your management constantly against each other.
