    Pros

    I was amazed by McCarthy's investment in their interns. I was put on a great project team, given chances to see multiple parts of the company, was given personal development opportunities, and treated as an equal.

    Cons

    As an intern I was limited to 40 hours a week, however I saw many employees working long hours due to expectation when there wasn't necessarily work to be done.

    Great Bet Long-Term, Not For Everyone Though.

    Pros

    Very good company for long term growth potential as an individual, both with your career and your finances. If you are struggling performance-wise, they give you a fair shot and time period to turn it around instead of just firing you like at some other GC's. ESOP is structured by design to reward people who are in it for the long haul. Company has very healthy balance sheet. Company aims to keep people with less than <5 yrs tenure within similar pay ranges for respective titles, I think this is to give everyone new as fair of a shot as possible and avoid nepotism hires.

    Cons

    Because of McCarthy's long-term stability structure & planning, individuals starting out may find the base salary is less than the competition, particularly over the course of the last 2 years. This isn't just for staff; McCarthy offering good benefits and long term career growth as a tradeoff for a lower hourly rate can make 1st-year craft retention particularly low. This can at times make hiring for upcoming projects difficult and/or delayed.

    Pros

    - McCarthy cares for their employees - Infinite amounts of resources - Great benefits, people, and culture

    Cons

    - With a big GC company like McCarthy, policies and procedures can be annoying and unnecessary at times - Some employees move up the ladder fast, others not so much. Depends on the relationships you have with your higher up's
