Sturgeon Electric is a good place to build a career.

Project Manager (Current Employee) Denver, CO (US)

ProsSturgeon is based on building and maintaining relationships with its customers. Because of this, it is a very satisfying place to work.

Sturgeon tends to be viewed as 'costly' though, in general, follows through with a high level of service and participation in the building process. When this is factored in, Sturgeon ends up with a customer that likely has spent the same or less than the "low bid" with a much better feeling about the product they have received.

Further, Sturgeon tends to specialize in more complex projects like hospitals, water treatment facilities, data centers, research laboratories, etc. This yields a more interesting "day to day" work aspect.

ConsSturgeon, like any organization, has its politics. Opportunity is afforded to anyone showing initiative, which is a good thing. However, the attitude can feel a little too open at times and those who have not shown initiative are sometimes rewarded when they have not produced on multiple occasions. I would not trade this for a gestapo, non-trusting type organization, though.

Also, the jury is still out, but I wonder what becoming a public company (under the MYR Group's ownership) will bring for Sturgeon. I don't trust that most investors understand basic assembly line type companies, let alone construction companies. This could become a downside when, and if, fickle investors want their money in a down-cycle or just when they get "scared".

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build Sturgeon's business on relationships and, more importantly, do not let those relationships go untended.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
