Company Culture

The work environment was toxic, high stress levels and the team was pitted against itself by design.

Support from management

There was no clear communication and often contradictory instructions given. People were asked to tailor information as to seem favorable to the project in lieu of the truth. An "Old Boys" type mentality.

Teamwork

The project team was not organized to support each other. Instead the separate groups within the project team were forced to look out for their own budgets and scopes of work sometimes at the cost of other groups within the project

Freedom to work independently

We did have input on our areas of work.

Internal Communication

There was decent communication regarding the companies financials on a quarterly basis

Gender Equality

Women were hired and an integral part of our team

Attitude towards older colleagues

There were no obvious bias towards older employees

Career Development

Advancement was possible but not a fair process. Employees were stacked ranked but those rankings were not disclosed

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was at least market if not slightly above market scale

Office / Work Environment

The main office was new, the onsite job trailer set up was as good as a trailer can be. Office equipment was new, but purchased by the client.

Environmental Friendliness

Lip service only for hiring minority and women owned business. There was no real effort to ensure WMBE businesses were used

Work-Life Balance

We were expected to work 50 hours a week at a minimum and frequently worked in excess of 60.

Company Image

The internal project team did not speak of the company favorably. The majority of the project team did not enjoy working for the company, only senior managers did.

Job Security

We went through several rounds of layoffs over 18-24 months while I was there.

Handicapped Accessibility

We were ADA accessible at the main office but our job-site was not.

Workplace Safety

There was training provided but we had several serious incidents onsite.

Challenging Work

You are provided the opportunity to work on unique and challenging projects

Inclusive / Diverse

There were women and minorities on staff and no obvious signs of active discrimination.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be more financially transparent to employees. Don't use subcontractors as a way to recoup losses incurred by self perform work. Make better personnel decisions and less nepotism.

What I like about the company

They had premier project opportunities and talented coworkers. There are some very talented people there

What I dislike about the company

Their lack of ethics when addressing self inflicted financial loss, it was passed onto our subcontractor partners who had no involvement. The elitist and non inclusiveness
