    I worked at Thrasher full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Thrasher is a great place to work! They treat you like family! Respect you! Very organized organization. This is one company that will make you a better person at work and at home. I was very pleased how I was treated there. Management has the correct intentions for every employee. You will become more hungry, humble and smart working there!

    Cons

    I really can’t think of any. The only thing I could say is more video conferencing. The drive from Kansas to Nebraska is long!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I’m a better person because of what I learned at Thrasher! You all are great people and I enjoyed my time with you all!

    I have been working at Thrasher full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company you keep says a lot about who you are and this goes for an organization as well! Thrasher is full of great people who embody the core values of the organization. There's always a healthy competition and very reasonable expectations. Work hard and invest in the company and they return the investment into you as a valued team member.

    Cons

    There is a great cafe on sight where I now spend more money for lunch! I'm very optimistic about the opportunity and career at Thrasher.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and stay open to employee feedback.

    I have been working at Thrasher full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Thrasher has grown a lot and is settling into their new structure and size. They have figured out how to balance the needs of individuals to feel connected and manage as a larger organization. While not perfect, the company tries to make individuals the best they can be.

    Cons

    This is a fast paced environment with high expectations. If you do not like responsibility or high expectations you will not like working at Thrasher. It is not a place where you can hide or coast as an employee.

    I worked at Thrasher full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Not many positives about Thrasher other than the camaraderie with the other guys in the trenches.

    Cons

    Stick it to the employees with cost, and if anyone gets close to the accelerated bonus Thrasher either fires them or does not give them any appointments. Easy to cycle through many sales reps, keep pumping 1000% markup back to the mother ship and screw the people doing the work. If you like being mistreated, then work for Thrasher

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage, quit reading books, know your employees, and figure out how to "help" employees as much as you "help" your customers. In reality all Thrasher does is "help" its bottom line.

    I am sorry to hear that you didn't have a positive experience while working here. It's unfortunate that your review doesn't give us much to go off of for us to improve others' experience. We have been named Omaha's Best Places to Work, for 3 years in a row, and that award is strictly ...

    "Narrow minded and quick to fire"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Thrasher full-time

      Pros

      Make good money if you perform with a dependable business where your leads are provided for you.

      Cons

      they will fire you for very small things or they just won't even tell you. The management is very narrow minded and that could lead this company in the wrong direction.

      I worked at Thrasher full-time

      Pros

      I can't speak highly enough about Thrasher and the people that work there. The people that work at Thrasher are caring, genuine, and downright good people. The culture that Thrasher possesses is top notch and incomparable to others in the construction industry. If you are looking for a place that has high expectations, this is the place for you. Thrasher places high expectations on all employees but gives them every...

      The company is growing so there are a fair amount of processes that need some fine tuning, but I am confident that leadership will have these ironed out in the near future.

      I have been working at Thrasher full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the leadership team at Thrasher. I am continuously impressed that their decisions are consistently made with the best intentions for their employees and customers. The Thrasher family has been beyond generous to its workforce and community since its inception, which I am lucky enough to see on a regular basis.

      Cons

      This is a tough-love environment. If you aren't thick-skinned enough to work with real, honest feedback then this is not the environment for you. I on the other hand love this level of transparency and think it's what keeps the best employees around and fulfilled. I am grateful to work for an employer that keeps me challenged and engaged.

      Advice to Management

      Keep leading with love!

      I have been working at Thrasher full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      I have worked for Thrasher for over 10 years. I have had the opportunity in various roles to see the inside workings of the company and understand what drives it forward. Through all the years, the different things it has tried for employees and customers, and the decisions management has made, I understand that their hearts are motivated by what is best for the employee and the customer - sometimes to the company's detriment....

      Cons

      Thrasher has high expectations for its employees. I don't think that's a con because it calls you to a higher standard for yourself, but I could see some may not like that.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing. Keep redefining for our employees and customers. Stay the course!
