    I have been working at McKenney's, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to muster additional resources in time of crisis. Pool of labor for sheet metal and pipe fitters can be directed at work that takes a high priority status.

    Cons

    Construction department is professionally run but the ability of building services to address customers needs lacks the experience to understand issues and complete the work in an timely and quality level.

    Advice to Management

    Work with customers with all resources and not focus on profitability.

    Pros

    McKenney's is a throw back company to times that you don't see any more. It's a 3rd generation family owned business and definitely run like a family. The company has amazing corporate values that treat employees, customers and vendors fairly. Its consistently ranked a great place to work with lots of ammenities.

    Cons

    Office location is south of Little Five Points so only convenient to downtown and South Atlanta folks, otherwise, it's a lengthy commute. Other than that there really aren't any cons of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on opportunities to include employees in the decision-making as the company grows rapidly.

    I have been working at McKenney's, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In many ways McKenney's is a throwback to a time you normally only hear about from your parents, when a company cared about its employees. When people were treated fairly, when the management first looked at what they were doing before putting all the burden on the front line employees. This means normally hours are very manageable, workloads are shared throughout teams and management. There are so many events throughout the year from weight loss challenges (e.g. Walktober), festivals, food trucks, onsite charity events (e.g. blood drives), the list is endless. There is an onsite gym with basicaly free personal trainers; onsite deli with subsidized breakfast and lunches. Basically, the company is just a great place to work. Its very entrepreneurial, which means your career is only limited by how much you invest in yourself. If you try new things management will support you (e.g. training, conferences).

    Cons

    There are very few downsides to McKenney's. The only thing I would say is because of the throwback culture there is resistence to flex arrangements like work from home or non-standard hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the investment in employees, continue to challenge people to be their best.

    Pros

    Great working environment, wonderful people. I truly enjoyed working with everyone at the company. They are very genuine and can tell they care about you.

    Cons

    HVAC was not my favorite, but to each his own. I also felt a little unappreciated as a lower level employee, but that is probably typical across most companies.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like contracting/construction is a hard industry for women to feel like they fit in, and McKenney's could work on that.
