    I worked at Webcor Builders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a very strong and positive experience at Webcor. The firm has some of the most smartest and high caliber building professionals in the industry. The project staff really care about the work they do and they work very hard. Peers serve as some of the best mentors and if you connect with the right one, you can learn a lot and advance in your career. The projects they build are big, complex and almost landmark like. It's exciting to be tied and connected to these types of projects. Benefits, perks, office locations and employee functions are very good!

    Cons

    Some upper level managers shouldn't be where they are and if anything, the jobs and departments are too upper management heavy. It almost makes you question what it is they actually do.

    Advice to Management

    I highly recommend better levels of upper/middle management reviews. There are some that really leave a bad taste in your project teams' mouths.

    I have been working at Webcor Builders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are average and are equitable with competitors. Senior leaders are dysfunctional and there is little to no opportunity for advancement unless you’re friends with one or more of the executives.

    Cons

    The people or hr team is useless and appears confused and fragmented with how to handle sensitive information. Turnover as a whole is very high. People leave for various reasons one of which is they feel threatened and disrespected.

    Advice to Management

    Consider selling the company which would force a significant and much needed leadership change.

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome and extremely low cost compared to other employers . The leadership team is down to earth and engaged. Everyone is extremely helpful and supportive. We work hard and play hard!

    Cons

    We grew pretty quickly, so some of our processes and support organizations are trying to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Webcor Builders full-time

    Pros

    Endless resources. Smart coworkers. Cool jobs. You can’t fail with Webcor unless you really try.

    Cons

    Too big. You are just a number unless you’ve worked with an executive before he became an executive. Too political. They do not respect or value seniority. Revolving door personnel now that the company has grown.

    Advice to Management

    Guys get burnt out on giant jobs-need to rotate-need to pursue smaller jobs. Please value employees who’ve been with the company for some time.
