    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Graham Construction full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and health / benefits.

    Cons

    Very little constructive feedback from more senior management. No room for movement into different roles. Lots of office politics (which seems to effect their hiring). Very little open communication and lots of closed door meetings. Need more diversity in the company. As is mentioned by many other reviews here - this is an "old boys club".
