    I worked at Matrix Service (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management never did the "look over your shoulder" act.
    Very lenient with time off.
    Pay was good.
    Per-idem was excellent.
    Let you cross train and help if you so desired.

    Cons

    Not always supportive of your decisions.
    Local management was to political in supporting employees interpretation and adherence to contract documents.
    Management to slow responding to interpretation and adherence to contract documents.
    "Family and friends employees had to much control of project Leads.
    Appearance of sacrificing an employees' integrity, Quality control and experience for pleasing sub-contractors for profit reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive and less political enforcing contract documents.
    Tighten up the "family and friends" issues.
    Be honest and open addressing the "good 'old boy syndrome"
    Stop ignoring the advice and decisions of leads.

    Pros

    Started with an above average baseline pay and allowed the opportunity to learn lots and advance quickly

    Cons

    Inconsistent work availability and a sometimes toxic culture

    Advice to Management

    Bring yourself out of the hard nosed stubborn working culture and into the 21st century. Work place was very cliquey and uninviting to new comers who didn't make friends quickly

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good pay if you're willing to learn and be a hard worked. You get sometimes get downtime to chill and rest.

    Cons

    It can get pretty harsh working in 100+ degree weather inside of a tank that was once filled with oil or gasoline. Hopefully you get a good foreman

    Advice to Management

    Pretty good management. No complaints.

    Pros

    Good strong growing company, I like the direction we are going, long term employment opportunities are there for people that want to work hard.

    Cons

    Project managers seem to get recognition and bonuses for work and up sales done by Superintendents. No bonus programs. We are told we will get bonuses that checks just need to be signed but nothing

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the people that really take care of our customers (It's not the PM's) reward the folks that deal with the clients, employees, Engineers, Inspectors, payroll, PM's, vendors, subs, equipment, tools, material, schedules, budget, Managment and of course SAFETY.

    I worked at Matrix Service full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to work, they are willing to teach. You will find bad supervision in any company but for the most part Matrix does a good job of weeding out the bad apples. Good benefits for full time employees. Great safety culture up in the Washington area.

    Cons

    It can have a little of the good old boy attitude, employment will usually start out as short term, turnaround related work.
    Control of work at the facility I was at, created a lazy, slow work attitude, this by design is to increase the safety culture, but in my opinion has adverse affects.

    Pros

    Great Company and during your internship you really get a feel for how the company works. 10 Week Internship, with three weeks spent in each of their three main Engineering Divisions, and one week spent working on an intern project.

    Cons

    Never got to handle real work, only worked projects while a full time engineer was also working the project.
