    I have been working at McCarthy Building full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Heavy on Overhead, Pre-Con, & Management level staff. This can organize and prepare the operations team and craft workers to be very productive in the execution, and have a robust quality program that reduces re-work, compared to the competition. Very good benefits, most staff members that have been here for a bit are here to work together and get the project built.

    Cons

    McCarthy has a lot of meetings, from what I've been told by new hires, way more than competitor GC's. At a certain point, this becomes counterproductive, as weeks become longer, focus wanes, and team members begin to pay less attention during meetings and communicating with each other.

    I have been working at McCarthy Building full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good working environment, great benefits, ESOP, good on the job training, technology forward.

    Cons

    If you’re not one of the select favorites, it’s hard to climb the ladder - particularly as a female. I’ve had several female colleagues leave because they wouldn’t get promoted to the next level despite having the tenure/skill set/experience. There’s also a large disparity in quality of supervisors: During the time I’ve worked for McCarthy, I have had four supervisors - three out of four couldn’t care less about my development/ advancement. One of those three even pushed hard against the employee driving his/her own development. People skills and gender neutrality are still lacking in many instances on a global level.
