    Great company work environment, they care about your growth, intern meeting during the summer allowed us to network and get a great idea about the company.

    Cons

    Do not provide a lot of notice as to what city you are located in.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more notice to interns to find proper housing.

    I have been working at Holder Construction full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Holder truly is a family. They are miles ahead of any company I’ve ever worked for. Holder is always trying to come up with ways to keep the company on the forefront of the industry. I’ve felt appreciated and welcomed since day one.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con but we staff jobs at 75% capacity. This breeds out leaders that will rise to the occasion and be able to lead their own jobs sooner. If you’re able to manage workload and enjoy working hard you’ll love it here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep focusing on building up the younger leaders. And most importantly, keep growing the company in a controlled bubble. I want us to keep getting bigger but not at the risk of losing the family culture. Tommy, Dave and Bill are already on board with this and I look forward to a bright future.

    They give you as much work as you can handle. Age is not a factor.
