      Great Place to Start Career

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great starting salary. Friendly people. Benefits, and internal promotions.

      Cons

      Long hours, traveling , moving frequently, everyone has to start as a field engineer, no work life balance. Also, the long hours don’t equate to the pay. Lack of direction given from management for someone new starting out after college.

      Hensel Phelps Response

      Human Resources

      You are right, Hensel Phelps is a great place to start a career, but it is also a great place to call home through retirement. One of the reasons our less tenured employees are so successful and in-demand by other companies is due to the level of responsibility we entrust our employees with so early on in their careers. What could be perceived as lack of direction, can also be looked at as trust and responsibility. We give our employees room and opportunity to grow. We wish you well in your future endeavors and are happy to hear you had so many positive take-aways during your time with us. Our yellow-truck doors are always open should you wish to return someday. Best wishes! Hensel Phelps--
