    Not really a con, but fast growth has positively affected the increase in workload, benefits, pay, and morale.

    Pros

    Overall good work environment, leadership cares about the employees and their families.

    Cons

    There is no career path for anyone at a staff level, manager and below. The company is growing and wants to mature their processes. If you are hired as a manager or above your pay & bonus is good, however for the rest I cannot say the same. You will have to fight for your right to get what you deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the younger generation on opportunities & suggestions for improvement and growth.

    I worked at Quanta Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay senior roles good money.

    Cons

    It's hard to quantify all the bad experiences at Quanta. This is a company that grew through acquisition and that bends easily to any unreasonable request from its organization units and other individuals in the organization. Quanta is a fortune 400 company managed like a bad mom and pop store. The company's leadership has very little consideration for their investors and employees, wasting money and resources based on...

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen, as they are too proud of themselves.

    Pros

    The Company is growing and doing well. The pay is decent depending on your department.

    Cons

    The culture here has been horrible. There is no sense of value and appreciation for the hard work of employees. Some managers get away with being very rude. Complaints have been made and nothing is done about it. Quanta is a “who you know” type of company. Management keeps firing and then hiring people they know. Sad!

    Advice to Management

    Fix the culture. Its become increasingly worse. It is not the family feel you all are going for.

      I worked at Quanta Services full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Market salary, average benefits and frequent give aways and company events.

      Cons

      Long hours with little reward. Very political and perception, not delivery, is everything. Management at all levels seems to be struggling for direction and a plan to grow to the next level. Unfortunately, they lack innovation and can only go back to their old strategies. Employee turnover is high and morale is low.

      Advice to Management

      I wouldn’t even know where to start in this case.
