Pros

Quality from experience from different crafts coming together to do a project is as smooth as butter.
productivity from comittment is a powerful goal for the hard workers on site.
The respect that people give to one another for safety for us and our families.
The kindness of each other to at least be a some what family through the others of the day we got to spend together.

Cons

dont really hav a down , only because i worked for other companies before and never really had such a respect for any company such as this one.

Advice to Management

maybe, the lack of communication when one is tryin to tell the reasons of missing work or maybe late. Being a female, and a mother, my responsibilty as a parent is kids first... their education their health, ect. dnt shut us out cuz were trying to explain.

    Pros

    nice bldg. and good location. Flex time Great. Catered lunches you can buy and a lounge was build.

    Cons

    a mens world there. some managers have never been managers and are promoted to rapidly into positions. Hard to get kudo's

    Advice to Management

    To much mgmt. turnover. PM's need to be more involved on Projects and keep employees that are able & willing to communicate with Clients. The procurement dept. needs a make-over (no personality)
