    5. 3.0

      Good with the bad.

      Pros

      Most people are great. ESOP is phenomenal as long as you’ve been there long enough. Expect to have most weekends off, but not all. Highly invested in developing from within. Most senior project leadership will take time to help you grow and learn, which is better than most companies. They give you a phone which is nice but you are expected to answer when called.

      Cons

      Executive leadership is not as transparent as it should be for an employee-owned company. Compensation is considerably lower compared to surrounding companies-credited to the ESOP; which doesn’t help you if you are a first-year out of college trying to pay student loans. Several people on the same level as I had side/second jobs to supplement income.
