    I worked at Messer Construction full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere! Superiors really focused on mentoring me and cultivating relationships. It was intimidating at first, but they slowly gave me more responsibilities as I became more comfortable with my abilities.

    Cons

    Co-ops can lack experience needed to be competent.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lexington-Fayette, KY

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the technical side of buildings. i.e. How air handling units and heat exchangers work, as well as a lot on plumbing systems, building system technology and even how to manage teams.

    Cons

    Work could be very repetitive.
    Dealt a lot with Ipads.
    Work seemed bureaucratic at times, in that there were MANY individuals that had to be informed of a decision before any progress could be made. I understand safety is an issue here but at times it seemed way too counter-productive.

    Advice to Management

    delegate work better. Include interns/co-ops on as many events/meetings as possible to allow for maximum exposure to real job. Encourage interns to make decisions on the fly.
