    Pros

    Efficient organization. They have a template, procedure, or a form for everything. Lots of dedication to continuing education, new software, etc. Well respected and known among peers and customers makes it easy to have early successes.

    Cons

    Tons of forms, but zero follow up. They have all this paperwork and no one really analyzing any of it. If they are it's lost in the trenches. Tends to be very platooned, e.g. this division versus that division. Low pay across the board and WILL conveniently forget any promise not made in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Know what is going on in the trenches and don't just get this information from those that are in charge of it i.e., foreman, for the field guys, or division managers, for the PMs. Actually speak to the field guys and the PMs. Find a way to reward employees with positive reinforcement frequently throughout the year, instead of just saying it when they land a big job (if even then).
