    Great general contracting company to work for but it comes at a cost.

    Feb 2, 2022 - Senior Field Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -family culture at work and off hours -competitive -pension plan -company stock options that allow you to save a percentage for 15-30 years. You can request to take up to 50% of offered shares out (have to wait 13 months to get the cash) at $30 a share, typically are offered 1000 shares and grow every other year. -great health care plans -gas card after first promotion -company events -opportunity to travel the USA -end of the year company profit sharing checks that grow as you grow in the company. -401k plan (no match)

    Cons

    -work life balance is never guaranteed in this industry. -if you’re young you get shafted with horrible hours and working weekends with no compensation. -the company culture is different in different regions of the US, some great people to work for and others that are terrible with people. -you have to travel cross country to make any real money. -low pay for the amount of stress you have to deal with. -too many trainings for field staff that take away precious time spent in the field where supervision needs to be at all times. -WT expects all employees to individually accomplish the work load equivalent to a team of 5 people. -burnout comes quick if you’re on a $100mil+ job. -trial by fire mind set -company is growing too fast

    Interesting Projects, Ineffective Leadership

    Mar 24, 2022 - Assistant Project Manager (APM) in Baltimore, MD
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great place to learn the ropes of construction. - Whiting-Turner does many complex, high-visibility projects. - There are many employees at the company that have worked 20+ years for WT. - They have a solid reputation within the industry.

    Cons

    - long hours (typical of construction) - younger employees are treated as if they are completely disposable. The company will hire 20-30 PEs every year expecting half of them to leave within a few years. Weekends, late nights, etc will fall to the least experienced employees for months on end. - Company is very slow to change and adapt to new technologies. - Very old-school company. "My way or the highway" leadership style. - Long term benefits are provided but salary, PTO, and further learning opportunities are below industry standard.

    Great family feel…

    Feb 11, 2022 - Adimistration Assistant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    When you find the right group, it really does feel like family. There is tons of opportunity to learn and it is very much promoted to do so. Benefits are also unmatched.

    Cons

    Salary does not come close to balancing cost of living in certain metropolitan areas. You need to take on overwhelming responsibility to get the good marks and to match up to a check list and be what management wants but then feel left taken advantage of because your already doing all the work without the deserved compensation.
