    I have been working at W. L. Butler Construction (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere and culture. You are not a "number" here, you are part of the family. Great benefits. Many opportunities for advancement. 401K 5% match. Very competent leadership. It’s just the whole package.

    Cons

    To be honest, no cons to mention. Future growth is coming as we open another office in Livermore and continue to explore new markets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Make sure the transitions to new leadership are smooth and that everyone knows their role.

    Pros

    W. L. Butler has consistently been named one of the Best Places to Work, and it lives up to that title each and every day! W. L. Butler is a large enough company to offer diverse project experience and amazing opportunities for career growth, but still small enough to offer a family-friendly environment and a caring culture that is rare nowadays. I simply cannot imagine working anywhere else!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a strictly corporate feel, W. L. Butler is not the place for you!

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Very Competent Upper Management, Fair Salaries, Lots of Work, Excellent Reputation in the Industry, Nice 401K with 5% Match

    Cons

    With the recent downturn in the economy, no raises or bonuses, but that is expected as all companies are going through the same issues. Slow to raise salaries to keep up with the changing market rates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Your employees feel appreciated and value the excellent reputation that WL Butler has worked so hard to achieve.
