    Pros

    It gives you a pay check and the following benefits are offered: health benefits, prescription benefits, dental benefits, vision benefits, 401k

    "Politics" and personal agendas are very abundant at this employer. If you are not part of the "in" group, don't plan on being appreciated

    Pros

    Secure work environment, material support is very satisfactory. Interview process and safety programs insure that coworkers are screened to very high standards. Each employee can save you life, if you would ever need such a service.

    Cons

    Don't make mistakes, or you will be dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind your people. They have passed through a very rigorous and extensive training program. When employees make mistakes in the field, Hold a lessons learned meeting. Invite the customer to discuss possible ways to avoid placing employees in such high pressure situation. Where one mistake can not only cost them the job, but their career. Which impacts their retirement pension.

    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.

    I worked at Matrix Service (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well funded and committed to their view of management. Internally consistent to their vision.

    Cons

    No value ascribed to their employees. A harsh, bullying management style which displays little regard for the sensibilities of their workers. No on boarding, little training on internal policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your shareholders. You do not value respect for the individual employees you have. As well Matrix should move away from the rampant nepotism apparent in their hiring and promotions policies. Matrix should evolve from their small company mentality and embrace modern large construction management practices or sell out to a more progressive firm.
