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

    Pros

    Great support system to help employees succeed. A company that will reward you for doing the right thing, not just the most profitable thing.

    Cons

    Different operations groups act as independent companies, missing opportunities to share insights and avoid repeating others leg work or knowledge building. All white office space can be hard on the eyes

    Advice to Management

    No major complaints. It’s rare to find a company to be proud of in this day and age and Davis is one.

    Cons

    Average salary structure

    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.
