    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for training and career growth. The company feels like friends and family. We work hard, we play hard

    Cons

    Not always easy to find the person in charge of a department, and job titles can feel arbitrary at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep scrutinizing yourselves, as well as your employees. If we see management make mistakes and appear human, we will be more comfortable owning up and overcoming our own mistakes.

    Pros

    Great company, employee owned, and very talented co-workers. McCarthy provides field operations staff with all the tools necessary to do their job efficiently.

    Cons

    PM's lead the job; Superintendents take a back seat to PM's and report to them instead of being partners on an equal playing field.
