    I have been working at James G. Davis Construction full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing company culture! They know how to treat employees and try very hard to keep everyone happy. Moral is high and people seems to love it here. The training/education department is impressive. They're is so much available to employees - required and optional learning - online and in-office. Can't say enough good things about the people and the company itself. You can even bring your dog to work.

    Cons

    Pay is not top notch, but they make up for it with amazing benefits (100% paid medical) and many other perks.
