    I have been working at Swinerton Builders full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    The people here are great. My team is knowledgeable and we with well together. The management team trusts in the work we do and definitely don't micromanage which is nice.

    Cons

    To be honest the pay could be better especially compared to some of the competitors in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but be mindful of what competitors are offering to retain the talent you have and entice the talent you'd like.

    Pros

    Diverse company. Unique projects. Depending on your supervisor this company can be a great choice. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    A lot of your experience depends on your direct supervisor and/or PX. If they don’t go to bat for you don’t expect progression. There is definitely an “in” group. If you are a part of it you're definitely be on the fast track for progression in your career. And if your wondering “am I in the in group” your probably not. In speaking with some of the veteran members, it’s sad to here a senior team members say “this place is definitely cliquey and I get left out”.

    The favoritism is EXTREMLY obvious but no one speaks up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favoritism and judge employees by work out put and work load.
