    I worked at Structure Tone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not many, pay was average, benefits were ok, PTO system was better than anywhere else I have worked as far as accrual and amount, except there is never really an opportunity to take the time off because no one will cover for you. There were some great project managers there who helped me to grow.

    Cons

    It was a terrible place to start my career in construction. They did not take any time to teach project engineers proper methods unless you were assigned to a project manager who took it upon themselves to teach, which some did. However, speaking on the project managers, there was definitely a group/circle of them who were “inner circle” and favored by management, it was solely based on whether these individuals liked you or not. Many of them were extremely arrogant and egotistical and narrow minded in their methods of communication. It was a very toxic environment that felt like a high school where there were the cool kids, outcasts, and everyone else. There was gossip and talking about people behind backs amongst other extremely immature and childish behaviors.

    The upper management were ok but retained some very toxic people as account managers who did not foster growth and is ultimately what made me decide to leave. I didn’t have any reference to go off before, but at te company I moved to, my growth was exponential and learned more in the first 6 months there than I had at structure tone in over 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an outside consultant to do an internal review of the business culture. It is extremely toxic and does not help entry level employees learn unless they know one of the “inner circle”.

    I worked at Structure Tone full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Talent Pool of People. Folks enjoy doing what they are doing.

    Cons

    Dallas Office needs to allow the Project Manager with the relationship to be involved with bringing in new projects. Relying on Business Development and Senior Leadership to bring in the project without allowing the person who knows the client to be involved may affect the outcome of winning the project. It usually requires a Team Effort to win new projects.

    Advice to Management

    Good Company. I would definitely work there again.

    Pros

    Most projects are large and in recognizable companies. Structure Tone trust their superintendents to get the job done without having to micro manage.

    Cons

    Biggest complaint is recruiting. The recruiter rarely does his job with referrals. If you want a job at Structure Tone, you better know somebody.

    Advice to Management

    Find a system and stick with it. Employees need to be all on the same page.
