Suggestions for improvement

  • “I have some feedback for you,” he said. “First, you made it to the next round of interviews and they will be very hard. Second, you talk too much and had better get more succinct in your answers, or you will fail in the next round and most certainly at Sapient.”

Company Culture

Safety is everybody concern although when the numbers grow, the impact is no longer the same

Teamwork

Most of us had been working together when there was no real size. As a team, we were rather strong

Internal Communication

With size information does not pass around as quickly

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was working as a support foreman. When supports ended, I was not offered another foreman position even after I had inquired about another position

Workplace Safety

This is always a concern with any of the construction companies. I broke my fibula near my ankle although it was not noted broken until three months afterwards. It had already healed although it was initially noted as a sprang ankle.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Every construction site has a system in getting things done. At times, the logistics of the material did not coincide with the resources available. In addition, I believe that many of us experienced hands should have been moved to the newer areas that was being constructed for we had experienced the hardships of it once before.

What I like about the company

There was a camaraderie

What I dislike about the company

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would reevaluate the division of responsibilities as well as ensure that new employees aren't overwhelmed. Additionally, instead of adding more and more rules, I would reevaluate the rules that currently exist.

What I like about the company

The company has a good number of employee events that are nice to hang out with coworkers. My favorite is the company barbeque where we made teams and competed in sump wrestling and tug of war.
There have been times that I had to stay late and my manager would stay to help.
A lot of my coworkers have great personalities and stories that make coming to work that much easier.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lot of work and it doesn't seem to be balanced well. It doesn't help that some of the managers don't realize tbe amount of work that goes into some of the projects. There's also a divide between the business personal and the engineers, like its us against them.
