    Pros

    The culture is above and beyond what I've seen in a typical construction company. The dedication of the team to the client's experience is unmatched.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot that I can think of. Maybe just the unnecessary amount of new software and technologies rolled out every year.

    Pros

    Great people, great culture, and a clear path to move up to the next level. The company compensates you well if you need to work out of town.

    Cons

    Lots of hours and below market pay. ESOP is not as good as it sounds. Even though the compensate you well for out of town work, your still working out of town away from your family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Great pay, great co-workers and management. Any overtime you're lucky to do is generously compensated.

    Cons

    Hard on your knees, back, and feet - don't be out of shape. You'll be spending the majority of your paychecks on tools and equipment for the first several months.

    Advice to Management

    It's rare for management to honestly care about the well-being of their subordinates. Keep that up, it is appreciated.

    Pros

    Great company to start off and learning experience with. started first engineering/ construction management experience here, very hands on and learn for future jobs how the industry works.

    very large company scale overall. therefore the one on one experience is not as expected or as effective.

    allow interns to perform work shadowing a project manager or project engineer.

    Pros

    Great and friendly people. Very professional. Some room for advancements. They are very flexible with my schedule. A lot of hours as well.

    Cons

    No holiday, vacation, or sick pay. Hourly employees basically just get their hourly pay and that's it.

    Advice to Management

    I have worked for several contractors in my time and y'all are by far my favorite when it comes to attitude and morals. But y'all have the worst benefits out of any other company that I've worked for. Y'all are a very big company and well to do company. Give the hourly employees better benefits. Pleas

    To many new initiatives. VP heavy. More VP's than Superintendent's and PM's. Many VP's are not great leaders of people.

    Look at your staff before bringing in new leadership and new initiatives.
