    I worked at Hunter Roberts Construction Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent and competent upper management. Company invested in ongoing education for employees.

    Cons

    Field offices are in poor condition. Time off structure is unattractive. Managers gossip and talk negatively about each other openly. Got the feeling that if I befriended a manager different than mine, my manager would not like it and resent me for it.

    I worked at Hunter Roberts Construction Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some talented, bright people from entry level to top; some execs and PMs foster collaboration, mentorship and growth but not nearly enough.

    Cons

    Accounting is the company's whipping boy. other departments run rampant breaking protocols and then accounting is supposed to be the company watchdog so if you work in accounting, be ready to be hated, chewed out and bullied. poor environment for women, though it was more integrated on jobsite than in main office. little to no growth in accounting for years while operations is fast-tracked and carries half the workload. Worked 5-6 long days weekly for years. Regular workday was 8-8.
    Mid-level staff wiped out so all entry and senior which makes things lopsided and top-heavy. Staff constantly lost, replaced and rotated which results in messy projects and ineffective management. Regressive culture if you aren't a conservative white man though talk a good game.

    Advice to Management

    I heard the same conversation for years to no progress: if the company can't keep staff past 4-5 years it is failing at growth and leadership. The values espoused don't ring true in the actions, evaluations & promotions.

    "Very cheap company"

    Pros

    No pros to speak of about this company.

    Cons

    Upper management is very greedy and doesn’t reward the employees who work hard and earn the company money

    Advice to Management

    Stop stuffing your pockets with all the money your employees earn and start giving out bonuses that meet a persons merit. Give employee insensitive bonuses on projects instead of company insensitive bonuses based on employees hard work.

    I have been working at Hunter Roberts Construction Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a female in this company I feel that we are treated with the same respect and opportunities as our male counter parts.

     I know I can walk into anyone's office from the CEO down and ask for advice on career development or ask for help solving a work related issue.

     Plenty of opportunities for growth as long as you are willing to work hard, have a positive attitude, are able to be collaborative and a team player.

    There are also plenty of training opportunities on a wide range of topics

    Cons

    The company runs very lean could some use additional staff

    Pros

    Have worked for HRCG 2 different times. Each has been a pleasurable time. As an older employee , I don’t look at negative things as ALL companies have faults. Do your job and you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    None that I have found

    I worked at Hunter Roberts Construction Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Philadelphia office. An honestly great learning experience for not only engineering and construction knowledge but also for career options for engineers. The internship keeps you busy but is not overly demanding and everyone I worked with was great. Salaried employees were kind and receptive to younger interns.

    Cons

    Slow adaptation to technology. Salaried employees are very busy. If you want to learn and work during internship, you often have to go up to your managers and ask for something to do or to shadow them, if you ask for work they'll find a good task for you, if you don't ask you'll find yourself sitting at a desk all day.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker adaptation to technology. Much of the company feels too 'set in its ways'.
