Company Culture

My example I did everything for this company only to find that they were not putting the money for 401K from my check ( so this is my money not their match) into my account. It was just disappearing.

Support from management

There is no leadership at this company. It is up to you what you want to put into your job.

Teamwork

I always felt that I was better off to take care of everything myself. Others are lazy without work ethic.

Freedom to work independently

Workloads are given fairly equal but as mentioned before you are better off taking care of things yourself to get them done.

Internal Communication

You get thrown into a job with information such as here is the job figure it out. No meetings ever. Ex co owners are in a legal battle.

Gender Equality

Have women as secretaries, there are not a lot of women in the construction industry to begin with.

Career Development

For the most part there is no room for advancement if you hire in as an inspector that is what you will be.

Overall compensation for your work

wages are good, But often asked to hold your check until the following week, health insurance is very expensive, company was not putting the money that I was contributing towards 401K into the account but they were removing it from my paychecks.

Office / Work Environment

In the office you provide your own computer. In the field you are very often asked to take care of your own traffic control, which is fine on local roads but very dangerous on main highways.

Environmental Friendliness

Very often told by the office people to just go to work when weather is not feasible.

Work-Life Balance

No personal days, 1 week vacation after 2years of working there. In office hours are Mon-Fri 8-5, field personnel can log 70+ hours in the summer.

Company Image

company likes to hire foreign workers on work visas so that the employees do not have a good option in leaving the company.

Job Security

I do not see this company being open for more than 5 more years

Workplace Safety

on the job training.

Challenging Work

I felt proud because I went above and beyond and put forth my best effort.

Inclusive / Diverse

they are up for anything as long as it works.

Company Culture

Very relaxed work environment the more effort you put in and work completed the better chance for pay raises. You do have the opportunity for very good pay.

Support from management

given projects basically told to just make it happen in often unfeasible conditions learn to improvise, adapt, & overcome.

Teamwork

Everyone is willing to help out to their extent some more than others. Often felt laziness with a few individuals.

Freedom to work independently

In my position I often felt that I had to pick up a lot of slack from others in order to complete a project usually due to laziness.

Internal Communication

You are provided with contacts and told to take care of the job. Not much information shared about results and profit.

Gender Equality

Some women work in the office but usually do not last as field employees due to the type of work and work load. The company is very diverse with different nationalities of people working here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long service employees are appreciated and given the better projects.

Career Development

You can move upwards in the company to some extent but will probably never go from a field employee to office management. Not really any options for further training unless required.

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay, often asked to hold checks until a certain date, had 1 check bounce, 401K offered but company was taking money out of my check and not putting it in my 401K (my reason for leaving). Department of labor took care of the problem.

Office / Work Environment

Often sent out to work sites with inadequate traffic control. company trucks will not get new tires until you have a blowout or tread is completely gone.

Environmental Friendliness

Often told to just go to work even when temperatures are extremely cold where equipment will not or is a battle to start.

Work-Life Balance

You have no vacation time until after working there for 2 years and then you get 5 days after 4 years you get 10 days. No sick days. During peak times hours are almost unlimited.

Company Image

The company as a whole is not the greatest due to some unqualified individuals sent to complete tasks they are not trained for. But you can make a good image for yourself if you are willing to go above and beyond others at the company.

Job Security

Never got laid off always kept busy but when a company is stealing from your retirement fund, how long are they going to be open?

Workplace Safety

Not much training. Insufficient traffic control often. Its like pulling teeth to get necessary equipment or fix the equipment that you have. Often told to purchase these items and put them on your expense sheet.

Challenging Work

Often times yes you do feel a sense of accomplishment when completing your tasks.

Inclusive / Diverse

Ideas are almost always open as long as you can complete the task. You are usually given the project to complete with no questions asked on how you complete it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Do not steal from your employees by offering a 401K plan taking money out of their checks and not depositing it. Maintain equipment other than just use it until it is broken. Do not ask employees to hold checks until a certain date. Offer fair amount of vacation time maybe based off of hours worked per year. Hire proper traffic control when working on busy roads other than putting the responsibility on employees with inadequate equipment.

What I like about the company

Relaxed working environment with friendly co workers, always kept busy never laid off, good pay.

What I dislike about the company

Being asked to wait to cash my check, not having proper tools needed to repair equipment or do your job, money being taken out of your check for 401K and not put into your account, feeling like you have to do everything if you want the job done correctly, very little vacation time offered.
