    Pros

    great people and great benefits

    Cons

    60+ hours per week required way too often

    if a project needs more people, get more people and learn from it. Stop expecting people to pick up the slack and sacrifice their life for a job.

    Pros

    PTO allotment (when you can actually use it), interesting projects.

    General mismanagement of site people resources and poor scheduling makes it impossible to have a life outside of work. Work life balance here is lacking.

    Everyone pitches in when things go wrong, lots of good attitudes.

    I have been working at Mortenson full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Lots of room to move up if you're dedicated and hard-working. There is no such thing as a shortage of hours. Good work family culture. Great safety program. Half-decent per diem.

    Cons

    Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into expect week after week of long hours and plenty of Saturdays but hey it's Construction the schedule is the most important thing in our lives and we're damn good at meeting it.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to retain more good craft workers, It's frustrating training a new batch of workers at every new site.
