    Pros

    Swinerton is a great company that is dedicated raising the bar in the construction industry. We have great leaders with great vision and lead with integrity and respect. Swinerton believes in investing in its people through continuing education programs, annual training courses and workshops, mentorship programs, engineering rotation programs, and many more.

    Cons

    Some people can get burned out. Some people get promoted too quickly often leading to dysfunction.

    Advice to Management

    Really look hard at the individuals putting in the work. There are a lot of great people there that are not getting the attention and recognition they deserve.

    I worked at Swinerton Builders full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When work is available it is usually full time with overtime included.

    Cons

    There are very few people of color in positions of power, most people of color if any get fired quickly(replaced), and are given the lowest jobs in the company. Training is minimum and politics plays a big issue within the company. If you are a person of color beware.

    Advice to Management

    Have more diversity in the work place, add some color, after all I'm sure many clients were people of ethnic backgrounds.
