Project Controls Associate (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: company events
Cons: mangement hire on friend basis not willing to let employees grow
Some of Mangement Lack Soft Skills. Micromangement is the first encounter of bad mangement. If you enter the company as a contractor mangement is so afraid of there job it makes it hard for you to be hired in as a full time permanent employee if your opinion is voided or ideas on how to change a process

PM (Former Employee), San DiegoNovember 16, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: work with bullies
The company as a whole is excellent. The Local leadership or lack there of leaves much to be desired. If you are not part of the good ole boy network, expect to be intimidated into submission. If you do not conform to their style, you will be forced out of the company. The local leadership uses the same tactics with the general contractors that perform the work, they intimidate them into over committing to the schedule or they get blacklisted and will not be given anymore work. GC's are required to buy lunches and provide gifts to employee parties to be used a raffles gifts in exchange for work.

Electrical Engineer (Current Employee), Cary, NCNovember 9, 2014
The office is not too large or too small. Management does not micromanage employees. Co-workers are fairly easy to work with. The size of the office allows each individual to learn and perform a variety of skills that some larger offices may not provide.

Bad Leadership
Manager (Former Employee), San DiegoOctober 19, 2014
The Director for the turf contract has no back bone. He has his favorites and let them make all the decision for him. They hire office help based on looks and not what the company needs. The company is from Kansas and they don't monitor the local office very closely. The Market Managers lead by yelling and threats. They are constantly yelling and cussing at employees.

Document Control Specialist/Autocad Technician (Former Employee), Stratford, CTOctober 6, 2014
Pros: lots to learn, great people
Cons: temp position
A typical day was opening up the office and preparing all the documentation packages for team members and contractors. They were either picked up each morning or had to be delivered.

Keep track of history documents and make sure everyone involved has the most current information at all times. If changes occur make sure all involved parties know and get them the current data.
