    Pros

    Great place to work with great benefits. Friendly people and environment. I would absolutely recommend The Korte Company to anyone seeking a job in the design-build industry!

    Great managers and team work, all senior level employees strive to help you sucseed, great challenges with complex projects, management / owners have extensive experience and reward employees that look outside the box to solve complex challanges.

    Cons

    Poor preconstruction buyout, unrealistic scheduling. Deceiving scope writing. Improper construction phasing, to many projects and not enough PMs to keep up .habit of using home base subs for out of state jobs that do not perform well

    Advice to Management

    Set up a training program for new employees instead of giving lots of rope to hang from.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at korte, although I was only an intern. I was given interesting assignments that challenged me technically and opportunities to grow in the company.

    Cons

    There is a limited amount of work for programmers, so there isn't much to do beyond standard ASP.NET web development.

    Advice to Management

    I'm happy with the way technologies are currently being used, at least from the programming side of things there isn't much stagnation.

    Our response may be late coming, but definitely comes from the heart. We're glad you enjoyed your internship with us and hope you'll look us up for future opportunities!
