    Pros

    Fun projects and the resources for a carpenter are great. You will never be without needed tools

    Cons

    After the convention center the jobs died out along with the potential for growth. Employees started to become more of a number and I feel that every career step was met with fierce resistance. Why promote you and then have to train you and someone else to fill the position that you left when they could just train someone for the role that you want?

    Solar Project Engineer

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. I have made friendships that will last for life since I have worked here. Mortenson's Solar group compensates you very well in PTO and monetary means. They make the busy traveling lifestyle worth your while.

    Cons

    Working in a traveling group like Solar means that you could be placed on a project far from a big city. You don't have control over where you are placed, so you need to be open to traveling anywhere. You will work long hours, but also will have plenty of time off.
