    Pros

    They have a great benefits package: plenty of PTO, floating holidays, paid health insurance, dental & vision, 401K matching, bonuses and flexible schedules. Plus they are and ESOP! Employee Stock Ownership Program - basically means I am a vested owner of this company. Every year they distribute company stock to the employees. We have a great year - I can see it.
    We have a great company culture. It's all relationship based from the teams themselves to our interactions between departments, to our subcontractors, to our clients. We have a good number of company events: from meeting for a drink at the pub to the whole company, family, clients and friends joining the ALS Ride in September.

    Cons

    Don't have much faith in HR

    Advice to Management

    I have faith in our upper management but I worry that as we grow we may loose the personal connections that make us special.

    Pros

    Useful perks (gym, transportation reimbursement) Company values employees and invests in them. Feels more like a close knit community than just another company. Lots of room for advancement. Work hard play hard, great people to be employed by.

    Cons

    Need more staff (who know what they're actually doing) to keep up with company growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    I have been working at Skyline Construction full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment - good people, good camaraderie and a good understanding of who we are and where we stand in the context of the construction industry. Flexibility, room for personal growth and the willingness to try new things are three core company values. No ideas are shot down by management.

    Cons

    Future thinking has its drawbacks at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to hire top flight project executives, managers and engineers will give us a competitive advantage. Bench marking our target areas has proven to be very valuable in identifying successful opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    David Hayes is a strong leader, I appreciate working for an "ideas" person who is constantly thinking about the future of our organization and pushing the envelope of growth and success. I am empowered to succeed in this company based on the ESOP culture and the flexible work environment. Feeling valued is the #1 priority in a work environment for me, and Skyline provides this.
