    I have been working at Haydon Building Corp (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Haydon has a strong culture that offers mutual support, promotes trust, rewards employee efforts, and ensures that employees know their work is meaningful. Haydon offers many opportunities to encourage employee growth. I started out as a receptionist and was offered an opportunity to work in payroll. Haydon truly cares about their employees and is a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    None. I can't think of one thing I am unhappy about at Haydon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I am a very happy employee.

    I worked at Haydon Building Corp as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company does some really spectacular construction work. Really interesting job. Beautiful office.

    Cons

    The management there was terrible. Condescending, threatening, and poor communication skills. Not great leaders. Definitely not appreciative of interns. They have inconsistent expectations on work to be done. And have no respect for giving employees freedom to complete tasks in their own way.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some better leaders to manage people. Set more consistent expectations. Allow employees to correctly complete tasks in ways that they do best. Improve communication. There was too much contradiction and last minute change of plans for no reason other than poor communication between various people in management.

    I have been working at Haydon Building Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Flexible schedule. Company encourages team work. There's room for growth opportunity. The fact that company pays for employee only medical plan and Dental plan said so much about this organization. They care for the welfare of their employees. I feel very lucky to be part of this organization who values their employees.

    Cons

    Like any company communication is always a challenge. For Haydon since not all the employees are in one site this could be a challenge, but the company leader's are working for ways improve this gap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great chance to get thrown into the industry. No hesitation to give me small responsibilities and test my competence.

    Cons

    There haven't been any downsides yet, but it could be tough to commute to a job site in the future as a project intern.

    Advice to Management

    They have been great at having an open door to conversations with me to help me learn more about the industry.

    Pros

    BUILDING DIVISION seams well run. Civil division runs just OK. They do get the job done.

    Cons

    Civil division, all management personnel kneel to the President.....too many YES men.

    Advice to Management

    None, management personnel are totally afraid of losing their jobs, never contradict the BOSS !

    Pros

    Great summer job as a college student looking to make some cash during the 3 month break from school.
    Good experience to the construction industry.
    Well managed construction crews.

    Cons

    Lots of coworkers with little to no education. Early morning shifts. Hot sun in Phoenix. The work can become boring pretty quickly. No lunch break.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a better forum for open communication. Give work crews the option to work 4 10's or 5 8's during the hot summer months.

    Pros

    The people there are very helpful and communicate well. People at Haydon like to do things out side of work and like it when others succed. They work hard and put forth good effort. It is a lot of fun working at Haydon Building Corp and people there are always trying to do a good job. Whenever you need to take time off they are always helpful in accomodating each individuals needs and concerns. Senior management is easy to approach and communicates well with employees. Everyone works together in order to get the job done and are quick to assist others when they are in need.

    Cons

    The overall project diversity and work that Haydon Building Corp performs is not very diverse. They do a lot of the same types of things. However they are successful at what they do and strive to run succesful projects. When it comes down to business they do what they need to. Also, some of the employees within the company are negative towards certain aspects of the job. At times it seems as if they are just doing things becuase they have to. The leadership abilities of the majority of the employees are fair to poor and the effort factor could use work.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise senior management to put more importance toward hiring leaders as their employees. The workforce within the company needs improvement and the structure and guidelines need to be further strengthened.
