Salaried Position
Safety Manager (Former Employee), USAFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: time off
Cons: craft supervision not buying into a safety culture
Granite Services is a subsidary of General Electric Corporation. Granite is the non-union side of GE. The hardest part of this job was getting the craft mangement to understand that safety should be the most important tool the craft uses.

A mistake
Control Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Baytown, TexasFebruary 4, 2014
Pros: the money was decent
Cons: poor resource management; worked with people that had low skill levels
This was a contracting position with ExxonMobil. At ExxonMobil, at least in the division I was assigned to (high Throughput is what they called themselves) if you are a contractor, you are treated as less than a person. This culture was terrible. Additionally, Granite Management was non-existent. There was a plethora of issues within the ExxonMobil – more... folks that if human resources found out about, that entire division would be scrubbed clean. Additionally, that particular division, from the ExxonMobil side, had terrible management practices. I don't think anybody their had greater than vocational level of school. This is good if you want work to be performed; but the person directing the work needs to have skills at managing! – less

A good place to start and terrible place to stay if your in wind power.
Wind Technician (Current Employee), Tampa, FLJuly 17, 2013
Pros: good training
Cons: everything else
The start of trouble began with their refusal to give raises even though I have asked for a raise and have been working for them for 4 years I have yet to get one to add injury to insult management has now decided that health insurance is to expensive for a company that has recorded millions in profit and have done away with it as well for the hourly – more... wind employees. The service managers never respond to emails or phone calls except when they need something from you to illustrate my point I called one in May about an issue, I think he called me back in August and said he had been busy but wanted to know if I could do something for him and that is not an exaggeration. They do offer good training but they are terribly disfunctional company to work for. Granite is a great place to start a career in wind but it is horrible place to stay. My advice to anyone looking to work in Granite wind is to take the job get the training and get out as fast as you can. – less

Prod.Safety&Life Cycle Reliability Eng.(PS & LCRE) (Current Employee), Greenville, SCSeptember 1, 2012
Pros: great company, flexibility, pay, benefits, good people
Cons: contract work
Granite is an excellent company for anyone to work for. I am only seeking new employment now due to a PSA contract change in which Granite will no longer participate. With a seniority of almost 18 years, I can not say a disparaging word against anyone I have had the pleasure of meeting while employed by Granite on either a professional or personal level.
