    Pros

    Well structured environment with support and guidance in all aspects. Great team of hard working professionals. Never a dull moment.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits after one year, room to advance, nice newer equipment well maintained and will be fixed soon as you report problem

    Cons

    The folks that manage from field office are very disconnected to reality of what is and what needs to happen. they do not listen and do not have valid solutions to problems

    Advice to Management

    support your field management and don't just tell them that there is nothing that you, the Project Manager can or will do to help.. Leaving crews leaders and foreman to carry on without support or any guidelines
