    Staffed appropriately to achieve goals, which allows everyone to spend appropriate time at the office and go home at reasonable hours.

    Senior management is dedicated to receiving ideas and buy-in from the people who implement policies and procedures.

    Cons

    Mid-range salaries for the market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep believing in your people. They'll keep working hard for you if you support them.

    I worked at Haselden Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Projects are staffed adequately, decent pay and vacation

    Cons

    If you are a long time established employee, you are in. If you are new and trying to get in. it is difficult. They hold "employee inclusion" events that all of the long time employees go to and the new people are left on the site covering it. Kind of backwards of what it should be. One particular upper management person has a job there because it appears that no one wants to deal with him. If as a professional, you like to be bullied, screamed at and degraded, make sure to work under him. Be prepared to be a paper pusher and rebuild the schedule daily. Health insurance could be better

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to deal with the people that you need to deal with.

    I worked at Haselden Construction full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Most managers are very experienced and invested in growing younger talent. Fun mix of projects and locations. Salaries are competitive. Vacation time is great. Good place to work. Just make sure to play the game and get in with the right folks. As others have described it, Good Ol' Boys Club is a good description.

    Cons

    Upper management definitely plays favorites. Saw multiple people laid off without consulting their direct supervisor because they weren't on the upper managers favorite's list, even though the upper management had no direct knowledge of, or work experience with, the employee. Benefits are below par with comparable companies.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at benefits. Take it easy on playing favorites.

    Pros

    Work with great people. They occasionally get interesting projects. Have seen many exceptionally talented people come and go.

    Cons

    Definitely a family run company. They have 8-15 of there "favorites" in senior positions regardless of education, experience, and talent level. So, don't expect much in the way of meaningful advancement. Bonuses and benefits are also lacking. Projects are constantly under staffed with much of the burden being placed on junior people without much reward. A quiet expectation that you should work 60+ hours a week for the company so, not much in the way of work life balance. Also, compared to other general contractors safety is NOT a culture here. Have worked here for 5 years never received any outside professional training. It was always "train the trainer" stuff. Operation teams are constantly shorted in favor of pre-construction because, they can bury money there.

    Advice to Management

    Quit constantly under staffing projects. Promote the educated and talented people from within. Listen when outside ideas are presented. Believe and pay for outside professional development for junior people all the way to your senior people. More emphasis should be placed on safety.

    Pros

    The leadership strongly believes in the employees and empowers them to make decisions. They are truly focused on creating a great place to work for all employees. The culture is inclusive and great.

    Cons

    Some of the geographic distances make it harder for employees in more remote areas to feel connected to the main office and Denver metro area. But the leadership recognizes this and is trying to improve it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the people and the employees.
