    I worked at Plaza Construction (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team and people. They currently have great projects, especially in the Miami area, and are looking to steadily expand their reach.

    Cons

    They do not invest as much in technology or employee training as they should. Their competitors have this advantage as some of them offer online and in-person courses.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more on training and technology for better efficiency of workers.

    I worked at Plaza Construction full-time

    Pros

    Many smart and qualified senior employees. Open opportunities for recent college graduates and young workforce.

    Cons

    Weak leadership. Management is complacent, and underperform. No standardized policies or oversight. No set goals which leave matters in a state of flux. Working with parent company can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul needed, out with the old who don’t pull their weight, and milk the system. More checks and balances needed. Focus on sharing a company vision, improving communication and standardizing protocols. Really listen and offer assistance to employees with ideas and concerns in order to implement the changes needed.

    I have been working at Plaza Construction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays fair, modest bonuses and promotions for project successes. Many fresh faces who like to work hard. Lot's of opportunity for people who work hard and ethically. Mostly a good culture.

    Cons

    A little disorganized due to rapid growth. Needs more checks and balances for upper managers who don't always seem to have their eye on the ball. Not a lot of mid and lower level support for the people in the trenches. People with tenure stuck in their ways. Survival of the fittest mentality. Could stand to implement more systems and support. Too dependant on the NY office. Somewhat handcuffed locally.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to support the talent. Implement the systems in place full bore, not half way. Current systems are fragmented and antiquated. There are better ways to get stuff done. Lean on the new people to show the way. Keep a closer eye on things.
