Career Development

Since it is a great company people stay for a long time. Therefore opportunity for advancement is not great, but as backlog increases some opportunities do pop up.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Broaden company sales focus. Too much of a niche engineering and construction focus.

What I like about the company

Great people. Real teamwork. Safety is first.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of consistent or increasing backlog.
