    Pros

    My Supervisor was the best. I feel with any company you choose to work for a good match to your supervisor is key. The CMPM (Construction Group was the best).

    Cons

    They were recently bought and their structure has changed and affected a lot of the outcomes. I am sure things will be brighter in the future.

    I worked with the most amazing people on a FGD project. It was by far the best job I have ever had. I learned so much and truly enjoyed my work!

    Unexpected lay off in January, ruined my hopes of seeing this project through til the end and witnessing the start up of the scrubbers.

    Pros

    Well-defined and supported project management services. Management encouraged off-site employee gatherings get acquainted and celebrate achievements.. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Yearly employee review process was archaic and not particularly helpful to anyone. IT support was slow or unresponsive at times for internal users. Problems with internet access to some internal company web sites or applications was not uncommon.

    Advice to Management

    Improve downstream communication with non-supervisory personnel. (regarding opportunities and or initiatives the company is involved in).
    Expand the types of industries supported with project management services.
