    Pros

    Great work environment, everyone works as a team which makes the job both enjoyable and stress free.

    Cons

    They do not inform people of changes in bonus structure. You just receive a surprise check worth a significantly lower amount of money. There also is not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Construction management on site is great, off site management could use some work. I suggest, when implementing new policies, they email out instructions/guidelines to the heads of departments at all locations rather then implement changes at headquarters and expect other locations to magically know them. And maybe do not "fix" a policy that is not broken, it only confuses things. (This was done often)

    Pros

    Not a 9-5 grind so you have some control over your schedule. Money can be good after long ramp up period. Positive sales environment.

    Cons

    They charge the customer twice as much as the competition and train you to use used car sales tactics to close the sale. Long drives to an appointment that wants 150 SF of turf. So much driving!

    Advice to Management

    2 mandatory unpaid office meetings a week. Really??

    Pros

    Nothing. Awful company. Crappy pay.

    Cons

    Laid off hardworking people, that are producing results for what they were hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Think of people that work for you!
    Give a heads up if your changing direction. Being laid off in 1 day with no warning...not good business.

    I worked at System Pavers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at System Pavers for over a year in the Marketing department.

    The team is very supportive overall of each other and will make sure that you feel comfortable in the department while you work there. The other departments within System Pavers were also very friendly to each other which was a huge bonus.

    The building is beautiful and you can take walks along the lake that's in the business park on your breaks if you choose to. Ping Pong is available to play as well on breaks if you like to play.

    I was able to learn a huge amount in my field while I was there and they had a generous vacation time package that really helped with work/life balance.

    One of the biggest highlights from my whole experience at System Pavers was that they offered a Leadership Class . It is run by a licensed life coach and I can honestly say that this class helped me in so many ways both professionally and personally and really helped boost my work productivity as well.

    Cons

    The wage I started at didn't feel very competitive for the city and state System Pavers (Corporate) is located, especially when I compared it to other professionals with similar experience (keeping in mind there are a lot of applicants in my field, so SP had an advantage with the hiring process). That was ultimately one of the main reasons why I left since the company itself and the people were one of my best work experiences I've had. I do want to mention however that I was offered a small raise at the annual time of reviews even though I only had been working there about 6 months, and it really made a difference in feeling more appreciated.

    The traffic is rough, but everyone used to Southern California knows this already.

    Advice to Management

    I think higher (more competitive) starting wages can help retain employees, the benefits package is a huge selling point but at the end of the day there's the bottom line and wages are important. I also think some company-wide policies were modified within the Marketing department which caused some (mostly minor) frustrations because of the inconsistencies.

    Overall System Pavers is doing a phenomenal job and they really do hire the best people for the job from what I've experienced. I would work for them again in a heartbeat if things were modified slightly.
