    I worked at Matrix Service full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good pay if you're willing to learn and be a hard worked. You get sometimes get downtime to chill and rest.

    Cons

    It can get pretty harsh working in 100+ degree weather inside of a tank that was once filled with oil or gasoline. Hopefully you get a good foreman

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty good management. No complaints.

    I have been working at Matrix Service full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good strong growing company, I like the direction we are going, long term employment opportunities are there for people that want to work hard.

    Cons

    Project managers seem to get recognition and bonuses for work and up sales done by Superintendents. No bonus programs. We are told we will get bonuses that checks just need to be signed but nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people that really take care of our customers (It's not the PM's) reward the folks that deal with the clients, employees, Engineers, Inspectors, payroll, PM's, vendors, subs, equipment, tools, material, schedules, budget, Managment and of course SAFETY.

    I worked at Matrix Service full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to work, they are willing to teach. You will find bad supervision in any company but for the most part Matrix does a good job of weeding out the bad apples. Good benefits for full time employees. Great safety culture up in the Washington area.

    Cons

    It can have a little of the good old boy attitude, employment will usually start out as short term, turnaround related work.
    Control of work at the facility I was at, created a lazy, slow work attitude, this by design is to increase the safety culture, but in my opinion has adverse affects.

    I have been working at Matrix Service

    Pros

    Company has hired very solid, talented personnel. They are good to work with and work together reasonably well. Most employees have a reasonable amount of integrity.

    Cons

    Public company that looks to the current and immediate future stock price rather than planning solidly for the future of the company. Though this is the problem with almost EVERY public company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry much less about the street and realize where the market is in margins and begin to eliminate your unrealistic expectations.
