    I have been working at Robins & Morton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with R&M for 5 months and R&M is a great company that treats employees like family. They care about employees and want them to learn and grow with the company. Their Co-Op program is top notch and put student in control of work and expect them to get things done. Young Field Engineers and Project Engineers are expected to contribute and be a driving force to the project. Its great to see R&M put so much faith in their young employees. Can't wait to see what the future holds.

    Cons

    My only con would be as a traveling PE is the trips home. I have worked on the road before and have got a long weekend home a month. R&M doesn't have these weekend set for PEs.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't personally experienced this with R&M, but with other companies and either lack of transparency. Make sure to be transparent with expectations and upcoming jobs. Not being transparent can ruin team moral.

    Pros

    Senior Management is aware that Robins & Morton's continued success is wholly dependent on the happiness and continued development of its employees. This is primarily demonstrated through training classes, bi annual reviews, and an open door policy to speak candidly with senior management.

    Cons

    Such is the case with many mid-large sized General Contractors, travel is to be expected. Operations managers are constantly juggling project needs versus employee needs.

    Advice to Management

    Heavier emphasis on regional recruiting to stay within regional offices. This will help limit the distance from home.
