    CEO who truly cares. Culture of helping one another. Excellent benefits. Very talented people. Friendly work environment. Lots of volunteerism.

    Managers don't always take care of problem employees the right way.

    Pros

    I worked in the Alameda office on the administrative side of the company. Very good environment to work in, supervision is reasonable and allows you enough freedom and flexibility to get work done. Company is always looking ahead and trying to be a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    No significant cons; if you are interested in the industry, it is a great firm to be working for.

    "Not a worthy company"

    I worked at Webcor full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to other companies in the same function, work presence seemed to be quite loose, with people ending their day at their discretion during regular business hours. Promotions were given to unqualified employees who had the better relationships.

    Cons

    People are afraid to express their opinions on the company, there is a great feeling of discomfort and not being appreciated in the workplace. The turnover rate for employees is very high. HR is not able to offer support, nor help the reversed hierarchy of this place (majority of seniors/executives). A lot of preaching about company culture from executives and senior HR yet not reflected in their actions, poor ability to manage properly and fairly amongst their people.

    I worked at Webcor 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.

    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.
