    I worked at Webcor Builders (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, good benefits package. The company is also trying to move in a direction that focuses on employee development.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and direction from Senior Managers. Project delays or cancellations created much chaos. Employees were cut based on relationships versus skill level.

    Advice to Management

    Try and avoid leaving some of your best and most loyal employees in a state of uncertainty.

    I have been working at Webcor Builders full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Never a dull moment, very satisfying and fairly easy to learn quickly. Field crew are always a fun bunch. Decent entry level pay. Skills learned are easily migratable to other companies.

    Cons

    Long, very long hours, and even then it is not enough to finish your tasks. Everyday you will leave feeling there are ten other things you should have done that day. Everyday you will walk in thinking there are 20 things you need to do within the first hour.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce workload on project engineers, provide more engineers per project.

    I have been working at Webcor Builders full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work with driven, intelligent & community conscious team members who have the opportunity to build some of California's most challenging and iconic structures.

    Cons

    Since they make me write a 20 word minimum, my only complaint is that we aren't building in more regions. It's great that I work close to home, but think our approach to construction and experience could serve us well in all parts of the country and beyond. But we're moving in that direction...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push the boundaries of a historically conservative industry by aggressively seeking new talent from broader backgrounds who can bring fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to the table.
