Was with Graham many of years. Graham is the job that started me out in the industry. Paid good wages and great hours. Very little lay off fears. Was a part of good team before re-locating.

Hard work and rewarding
Senior Labourer (Former Employee) –  White Rock, BC1 October 2017
Typical for the construction industry. There arte many people involve in large scale construction projects and you must focus on the job you are tasked with so as not to hold up other trades from completing their job. You must also deal with and resolve any problems that may arise. This sometimes can create a tense working environment.

Employee Owned Provides a Different Character.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 September 2017
The employee owned nature of the company provides a more positive character and work environment than large publicly owned companies that are consumed with meeting quarterly targets.

Not that great of a place to work for anymore
Operations Accountant (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK13 February 2017
Graham use to be a great place to work but is now overwhelmed with middle managers who provide little value and chip away at the company's bottom line.
In an economy where we should be frugal, Graham is continually hiring over paid middle managers in corporate while front staff are laid off.
Pros
Workplace culture
Cons
Boys Club, Low pay, Poor management

Working with People

Long hours and shift work (night shift)

Superintendent (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB10 December 2016
Overall good company, senior leadership team takes action on most recent surveys about what needs to be fixed or addressed. Senior leadership team is moving the company in the right direction, middle management has bought in and is pushing this down the line.
Pros
Fantastic teams to work with in the Infrastructure division
Cons
Construction generally has long hours and it should be expected in this industry, downfall is that it is not recognized across most as being this way and compensated for this
