      Pros

      Nice location, big building with amenities, some fun in-office and out-of-office events.

      Cons

      They are behind the times, in many ways. Pay was just ok. Benefits could be better. Management plays favorites, and all leaders are cut from the same cloth. Lack of diversity.

      Great Company to Work For

      Pros

      - Came in with minimal construction experience, but PMs were always willing to help teach me up and prepare for new projects and understand construction better. - Had basically full autonomy to run my projects; however, the PMs were always open to discussing any issues or questions that would arise. - Coworkers in the office and in the field were all great people. Everyone was a great resource if you had a question about something based on all the cumulative experience. - Opportunities for growth are available and employment benefits are top notch.

      Cons

      Summers do get busy for everyone in construction. Just make sure to check in on all employees at all levels to see how they're doing during that time. Could become daunting/overwhelming for newer folks.
