    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.
