Size of company: Medium (50 - 499 employees)

Industry: Architectural, Engineering & Related Services

  • As a current non-managment employee I will say this:
    You will work hard and you will be pushed, you are given extreme responsibility and accountability compared to your level of experience (especially 3-5 year employees) and not everyone can handle it. Stress can become overwhelming, but the satisfaction of finishing a construction job is second to none.
    Second, with the extremely high staff turnover rate of late they are finally looking to the future to make some changes. Time off has been extended, pay is getting better, and overall work-life balance is becoming a main focus to promote employee retention. They still have a ways to go to get with the industry standard but they are heading in the right direction.
    Lastly, you do a lot of traveling with this company and are away from home a lot, so relationships do suffer. The benefit of this is that you get job experience and gain construction knowledge at double the pace of a city job.
    Again, this company is not for everybody, but for those looking for a challenge it is definitely worth a try.
