  10. "Overall a great company with big numbers yet still feels like a small family company"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Senior Project Engineer in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at McCarthy Building full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits due to being employee owned; A-supes now get company trucks; the company takes care of the employees and works with them to ensure they're successful

    Cons

    The only down fall is that they expect 50 hour work weeks which can be frustrating as a salaried employee. They preach work life balance, but don't really take action to improve it.
