    They take care of their employees, and they really do care about your work/life balance.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunity outside of the construction business

    It is what it is. Great place to work, competitive salary and excellent benefits. If you work in IT or a non business/construction related unit your advancement opportunities are limited, which is understandable.
