    I have been working at MYR Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    *Great Co-Workers - Everyone has a very strong team attitude. There is family feel to the office. Everyone teases and jokes around with each other. *Strong Work Ethic/Community - Everyone pulls their own weight and also pitches in when someone else needs help. *Opportunities to Learn New Things - Everyone here loves to share their knowledge. All you have to do is ask. In addition to wealth of knowledge available...

    Cons

    Every company has its ups and downs, but I've have a lot more ups here. Almost every con I can think of could have been remedied by me. Everyone has to advocate for him or herself. This is a busy, fast paced environment, so you can't just hope that your problem gets noticed. Speak up!

        Pros

        You learn a lot about the industry at a fast pace.

        Approves of CEO

        I worked at MYR Group full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Although somewhat face paced at times the crews are fun to work with. Management is really helpful & accommodating in all aspects. Being the first female to successfully complete the MSLCAT Traffic Tech Apprenticeship (2002) I felt really appreciated & respected by my colleagues. Great group & I really miss being part of their organization. Great benefits, good work schedule also.

        Cons

        Uuummm...really no cons. Just work hard & have a can do attitude & you can be very successful here. Advancement is possible although there isn't available positions often due to the loyalty of the employees.

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what your doing & keep it "100".

        Pros

        Everyone here is very friendly and a great team atmosphere. Senior management keeps employees engaged in safety and activities going on in the community which gives a sense of security. MYR Group has given our department numerous opportunities for training to expand our knowledge that is greatly appreciated. Never a dull moment and have enjoyed being part of the team.

        Cons

        Sometimes it’s hard to find meeting space but could contribute to a lot of team collaboration.

        Pros

        I love working for this company because of the culture and environment. I wake up every day looking forward to working with the managers and my colleagues. I've grown personally and professionally here during my last 5 years with the company too--both independently and with my colleagues. I love the fact that I can pop in and say hi to any of our managers, or ask for their advice on something or just see them in the...

        Cons

        It seems to be harder to move up fast in this company, but it is because of our great longevity, a lot of people stay for a long time. For some, it may feel like there isn't an opportunity for promotion, however, with the Company's tuition reimbursement program and also the collaborative environment, variety of projects and situations, there is a lot of growth available--the individual has to be willing to put the effort...

        Pros

        The atmosphere of the workplace is great! Everyone in the office is very cordial and generally interested in your personal life. Other employees enjoy getting to know you on a personal level and make you feel welcomed.

        Cons

        Adjusting to a fast-paced, high-workload took some time and was frustrating at the beginning of my time here. I was kind of thrown into many different tasks with different processes. Now that I'm adjusted to these tasks, the days go by more smoothly.

        I have been working at MYR Group full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        MYR Group is a great place to work. I have been able to grow into a career that I love based on internal growth from the company. My direct manager values his employees and empowers me to know that I make a difference in MYR Group and that I matter within the organization!

        Cons

        Parking can be difficult on occasion in the Henderson lot.

        Advice to Management

        I would recommend more internal growth from existing employees. See what talent you have under you and see how you can help them be a bigger part of the MYR team!

        I have been working at MYR Group for more than a year

        Pros

        I love this organization! I was fortunate to have been brought on nearly two years ago and I have truly enjoyed every step of the journey so far. I have enjoyed learning about the electrical/ construction industry and am privileged to be a part of such a thriving, deep-rooted company. I’m challenged every day and have learned more than I could have imagined. I have a terrific work “family” and I feel a deep sense...

        Cons

        If you’re looking for down time- this isn’t the place for you. To say that it’s fast-paced would be an understatement. I often feel that I’m playing a game of “beat the clock” when I walk in each day. I thrive in this type of environment and it certainly makes the days, weeks, months, etc. go by quickly- but I understand it’s not for everyone. There’s also a LOT to learn; if you’ve never been immersed into the organizational...
