    Pros

    I really love working for Mortenson, they provide great benefits, great upward career advancement for quality work, great mentoring structure, competitive pay, and is a family run company which you can feel from the top.

    Cons

    The projects we are going after and the customers we work with are very demanding - this seems to be the industry norm, but I wish leadership would listen to the cries for support to appropriately staff the team.
    As with most construction jobs you should expect early days and long days, but expecting 6am-6pm work days hardly allows for proper work life balance, even if you are great at time management.

    Advice to Management

    Appropriately staff your projects!

    Listen to ideas from your field and follow through, especially when it comes to onboarding members. I have heard amazing ideas come from them but they do not get put into action due to insufficient training or the company wanting to make a dime from the Yard.

    Promote work/life balance. You can say all day that it is the individuals responsibility to manage their balance but managers, superintendents, among others in the field expect 10-12hr minimum days.

    Pros

    Great company benefits and upper management really seems like they care and are approachable.

    Too many initiatives with very little guidance from middle management really hurts the morale for the team members.
