    I worked at Henkels & McCoy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Focused on safety for employees.

    Cons

    Manager discusses salaries in front of others, curses employees in front of others, and discusses openly why other employees have been terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to former employees to discuss how their experience was working for the company and what things could be improved upon because current employees are too afraid to discuss it as the Manager has them walking on egg shells.

    Controls is micromanaged by manager. Don't expect a raise or promotion unless you are related to someone or know someone. Supervisors can't make own decision. You can't talk to anyone. Everyone is afraid to speak up might lose your job. Unhappy unhealthy environment.

    Listen to employees.

    I have been working at Henkels & McCoy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None.. at all. This place is terrible, worst job I have ever had.

    Cons

    I am 25, and I am the youngest by a long shot. No one has any sort of fun, no happy hours/holiday parties or anything. Way over worked and way under paid. Get an hour lunch break, but can never get up from my desk for lunch because I am so busy, worked 50 hours a week and got denied for OT. Had to talk with HR to get my OT approved. Management does not care about you at all. 300 projects a month 299 out of 300 are successful, but you will only hear about how bad that 1 project was. DO NOT WORK HERE. THEY DO NOT PAY THEIR EMPLOYEES, I am shocked how people are still here. One guy told me he has been here 6 years and has only gotten an 8% raise total over 6 years, average is 3% a year. Another guy has been here 14 years and just hit $50k. Project managers make 2k more than the coordinators and you must travel for 3-6 months stuck at one location. Seriously nothing good about this company, been here 3 months and I'm already leaving. Worked 7am-7pm 3 straight weeks and the manager said he isn't getting his moneys worth out of us... is a terrible place do not come here I warn you.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved, tell your workers they are doing a good job. At least say good morning to them.

    Pros

    Awesome Benefits, Over time is great money. They hire workers based on second chance opportunities. Good place to start off and gain the experience.

    Cons

    Management favors seniority, Management is NOT confidential. HR doesn't work with employees they favor management. Don't give the new employees a chance. Hiring managers skip entitled Union workers for favored workers that kiss up.

    Advice to Management

    Need to follow ALL CORE VALUES...CM's/ PM's are a bunch of whistle blowers, they can't keep anything confidential and everyone from afar job sites find out what goes on. Also, If you hire based on criminal second chances and they mess up, they have once again messed up on another opportunity (don't rehire). Need to do more random drug tests, managers/ safety give workers a heads up on those randoms, need to monitor that better. Stop playing favoritism on those seniority workers, they think they run the place and delegate there loads to the newbies (LAZY seniority crews). Need humble managers and crew workers ,not these long timers that put in the hours and sit around while bulling the newbies. Stop promoting relatives of your favorite workers to managers just to buddy up (review the experiences VS quality VS efficiency) be particular.

    Pros

    None to think of after being on the inside for so long

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the top. promotes longevity rather than performance. If you need proof just look at the COO / President of HM Inc

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a public buyer. Terminate your COO / President (who is a crook and a disaster)
