    I worked at Walsh Construction full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Project Manager, great team to work with. Flexible hours, decent wages and outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    Jobsite Trailer - but that comes with the job.

    Advice to Management

    Include the Administrative personnel in bonus distribution. They are just as much a part of the job, especially when in most cases they are there from start to finish.

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

    Pros

    WALSH walks the talk of valuing its employees. It is a good-hearted company working very hard to have a positive impact in the communities in which it operates. Competitive pay, generous bonus, unheard of benefits package with little cost to employees. Safety as its first value, which is felt throughout the company's operations and leadership alike.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees to do great work and embody the WALSH values that make this an awesome place to work!

    Pros

    Takes care of employees! They give you a shirt on the second day of working there. Who else does that? The shirt is green.

    Cons

    Don't have any cons to report as of now.

    I have been working at Walsh Construction full-time

    Pros

    A company who walks the walk, WALSH proves to care about their employees' well being. They provide competitive wages, generous bonuses, and they place value on your personal life and happiness. I also value how they give to the community, and work on projects that give back. Working for Walsh Construction Co., would be a solid career move for anyone.

    Cons

    I haven't seen any yet that are significant.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your employees, and the good work that WALSH has been doing for the community.

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

    Pros

    Generous benefit/compensation, great emphasis on work-life balance, friendly, smart, and driven coworkers, excellent training programs, management that encourages growth.

    Cons

    None that I have noticed. Occasionally management seems hesitant to give direction, but this is also a company whose employees are expected to be very self-motivated, go-getter type, so it makes sense that sometimes managers are a little hands-off. I prefer that to micromanagement! Note: a lot of the other reviews on this page are for the Walsh Group, which is an completely separate company based out of Chicago... that we are in no way affiliated with. Walsh Construction Co. only operates out of WA/OR, and is a great place to work.
