    I have been working at The Walsh Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent pay, relaxed environment, unique projects, career advancement

    Cons

    The working hours tend to be excessive at times for salaried personnel but that is to be expected when completing projects by schedule when working with sub-contractors.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great company to work for and I have nothing but great things to say about all of the project management I have worked with in my time here with the company.

    Pros

    Very good team building. Lots of work, never feel bored. Good benefits and mass amounts of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to figure something out. There is a power struggle going on up top and needs to quit. They do not care about the little guys. Project Managers need to be trained to help further the advancement of new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and listen to your employees. There is obviously something going on and listening to your employees WILL help.

    I worked at The Walsh Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent insurance benefits. Salary was ok.

    Cons

    Daily harassment. Threats by other coworkers. HR doesn't care and takes no action when things are reported. Upper management is allowed to bully and manipulate employees. One of the worst managers I have ever experienced was hired directly from the Walsh Brothers, so they apparently only care about who can save them money and cut costs and not someone who will look out for their employees. In fact, he's in a VPN position and has no education higher than a high school diploma.

    Advice to Management

    Hire true professionals with a real education and integrity. Have a high standard of ethics and be fair and balanced. Don't keep employees that verbally abuse and bully their coworkers.

    Pros

    Very professional atmosphere. Management was professional and easy to work for.

    Cons

    Projects were scattered all over the United States and required a lot of travel.
