    Pros

    Generous benefits package but those are changing according to our Human Resources Manager. Some snack provided, but they’ve pulled back on those due to slow down in some markets.

    Cons

    Perception of too many cooks in the kitchen. Senior Managers don't always lead. Mixed messaging regarding upcoming work. Layoffs may be on the horizon. Unclear on the growth of the company over the next few years which makes it hard to plan for your family and the future.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger leaders may be needed to help boost the company and the morale to the next level.

    I worked at Webcor Builders full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, self-performing construction company, learn from smart people. Part of a large overseas parent company, which can give financial security but the small feel of the company has changed with growth.

    Cons

    Leadership is somewhat isolated, changes in leadership occur too often for consistency, and is often politically driven. The focus is on big projects which can burn people out and take the enjoyment out of construction. Collaboration on jobsites is strong but it stops there. Lack of opportunity for employee ownership has been a challenge in retaining talent.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunity for employees to engage in business planning and company direction. Diversify work portfolio for consistent and paced growth. Open lines of communication with all levels of employees.
