Poorly managed company
Construction Manager/Project Manager (Former Employee), Sault Saint Marie, OntarioDecember 12, 2013
The company style of management is dictatorial in nature, does not believe in open communication and is less than honest in what is presented at the interview versus what you get once you are an employee. I would not recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a career with a future.

The hardest part of the job was the initial understanding of the process however once I was in the motion of doing this everyday I got more of an understanding of all the parties involved in the contract. This would also have to be the most enjoyable part of the job. Piecing the involvement of all departments together to better understand the workflow between client and subcontractor.
