Support from management
Unorganized leadership with too little guidance.
Freedom to work independently
Too much autonomy.
Poor communication due to lack of organization, plan, or workflow schedule.
Women were not employed or sub-contracted, however this doesn't mean they wouldn't be included.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There were employees and sub-contractors over 45 y.o.
There really wasn't any growth opportunity. Either a project was available to work on, or there wasn't. Employment hinged solely upon how much work was available, and there didn't appear to be a business plan for growth.
Overall compensation for your work
Wages were not unfair but toward the lower side. Occasionally there were cash flow issues which delayed payroll. There were no benefits, not uncommon among small construction companies. There was a generous Christmas bonus however.
Office / Work Environment
Company provided a tablet that worked well.
Did follow industry standard practices.
Construction projects with deadlines often require sacrificing personal calendar, its part of the business.
Morale among employees and sub-contractors was negative and realistic.
The position was clearly unstable due to lack of organization and the absence of a business plan.
This didn't really apply.
Safety is taken seriously.
It was more a sense of relief due to the challenges of completing a project without a schedule.
Inclusive / Diverse
Opportunities didn't really present themselves, however I have no reason to think they wouldn't be open to creativity and varying opinions or approaches
