    I worked at Okland Construction full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A few points that I loved about Okland is that they truly stand by their core principles, there's a rich spirit of drive for success and improvement, and they take care of their employees.

    Cons

    At the time that I finished my internship, they weren't in need of another full-time safety officer. I have nothing negative to say about management or the company as a whole.

    Pros

    This is a well run company that cares about it's employees. Work is challenging, but everyone on the team gives 110% every day. There is a lot of room for growth as the company itself is setting itself up for growth year to year. There is a large focus on safety, which is great! I have enjoyed every minute working for Okland.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything negative.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Okland Construction (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Technology is better than average, good company for those starting or trying to grow their careers, safety is pro-active

    Cons

    Pay is below industry standard, bonus's are sporadic, support from main office depends on Executive, some are involved and know what is going on, others are distant and aloof. Job security and employee development is not what it should be. There is a deferred bonus program for "select few" that has the illusion of job security, but if you read the fine print, it is not worth the paper it is printed on. There is an "inner circle", if you are part of that, you are well protected and can do whatever you want...if not...you will be the Scape Goat for those not willing to put their neck on the lines...

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of what is ACTUALLY going on in the projects...people are spread too thin...and are not properly supported
