    Growing company making a lot of positive changes

    Pros

    Opportunities abound if you want them. New management team is great and making positive changes. Yes there is travel for certain positions (it is construction after all) but EMJ makes every effort to balance the work demands with your personal life and commitments.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    EMJ has a good workplace community, interest projects, and a wide variety of roles you can take on.

    Cons

    The pay and benefits at EMJ are improving but are still not up to par with larger companies. Some aspects are more disorganized than larger companies as well.

    Pros

    EMJ has plenty of great people who are willing to mentor you and allow you to grow professionally. The new leadership has turned the ship and truly started investing more in its people and culture.

    Cons

    There are a few processes that need to be cleaned up and agreed upon company-wide. Inconsistency among projects has led to easy mistakes being made.

    Moving in the Right Direction

    Pros

    The training program for project engineers is unique as it allow you to work in each construction department for a 3 years total. I have learned so much already without being pigeonholed into one department! Bringing in a lot of young talent over the past six monthes as well as promoting from within Well paid, Solid benefits. We believe in selling ourselves to subcontractors, rather than sell the company, which I think allows for interesting business relationships. Overall, it seems like slowly but surely, the company is modernizing with the new generation being given more responsibilities and more say in what directions to take.

    Cons

    Employee turnover is normal for this industry, but is still difficult to manage. Lack of work place diversity. (interpret that as you will)

    Pros

    EMJ has a lot of tenured employees with excellent experience, a passion for this industry, and care/concern for their work product. People are very collaborative with one another and the company has really re-focused on the importance of the client experience. I enjoy coming to work every day - we have great events (recently a family one at the zoo). We have monthly status meetings and a weekly Blueprint that details everything going on at the company. If you aren't sure, you only have to ask someone - they will tell you.

    Cons

    I get some people are scared by the changes but they needed to happen. Frankly, those who aren't committed long-term should just not stay along for the ride. The company is really going in a great direction despite some growing pains.
