    Decent Company but Compensation Lags behind Workload

    Jul 1, 2021 - Assistant Engineer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Many times you encounter caring project teams. The work experience is great for career progression because the company name opens doors for you. Continuous opportunities for community give-back and mentorship of others, Great networking opportunities.

    Cons

    It is difficult to achieve work life balance depending on the project you’re on. Often, engineers and supers are given more work than they can realistically manage effectively. Work is not evenly distributed. Those who do better work are given a heavier workload. This results in things falling through the cracks. Management offers help but has no time to follow through. The change order process needs to be streamlined so that trade partners can be paid in a timely fashion. Often one person does the work of several people. Promotion is based on seniority rather than successful management of workload. The only way to get work life balance here is to create it for yourself. No OT pay at many client projects when you’re salaried / exempt.

    Pros

    Overall great company, Senior Management wants to do the right thing. Majority of people are great work hard for the team success.

    Cons

    A lot of clicks that focus on self advancement and not team success. Middle managers use positions for personal gain and ensure advancement is given to those within the click. Although preached all the time there is No real work life balance for most unless part of a click.

    Very Political Enviornment

    Pros

    Good work life balance but they make you work hard for every penny they pay. A lot of growth opportunities. Turner Constructions is really good. They have a lot of events to give employee a chance to know company better.

    Cons

    Very political environment. They only care for the colleagues who have spent much time in company and won't listen to the employees who are new in company. You have to obey senior engineers even they mistreat you otherwise you will jeopardize your job.
