Sales Engineer | Kintore | 17 May 2018
Has been a good company to work with
Enjoyed my time with Balfour Beatty until the last year as ruthless changes are being made and we have watched a vibrant money making part of the business being pulled apart.

Leasing Specialist | Fort Stewart, GA | 26 Oct 2019
Management team was not supportive
In my last year with Balfour Beatty Communities (total 12 years), I was promoted to management. The stress level became unbearable and I resigned 1 year after accepting the management position.

Rail Project Manager | Denver, CO | 9 Mar 2021
Talented people, positive goal based culture
Global giant of a company and quite progressive in their values of employees, safety on the construction sites, company culture/attitude in its approach to protecting the environment in how it does business. Loads of talented co-workers. If you work hard you will be respected, not held back. and will likely find personal and professional satisfaction with this team-oriented company.

Assistant Superintendent | Raleigh, NC | 20 Aug 2014
Struggles within "Commercial Div. Control & Multifamily Div."
Raleigh Commercial Division is a click. Either your in or your out. If your new and experienced, watch out. Better off keeping your mouth shut and not saying anything or letting anyone know that you are capable. Its definitely a CYA environment. If your not a beer drinker, where you go out for beers with the hierarchy,your out. Your typical day starts at 6:30 am and runs to no earlier then 5:00 pm. Most days your there even later. Your also required to work at least every other Saturday ( 10 hrs.). I averaged no less then 65 Hrs. a week. We also had street closures that would require someone to be onsite. I had worked a couple of times 20+ hours straight. Do I think that all the areas within Balfour are like that. No. I met some really nice people that worked for Balfour when I was going to some of the training that they offered. I just think that the Raleigh Division has issues. The Raleigh Division also has a "us against them mentality" in regards to the subcontractors. Leads to a very poor work environment along with poor morale.
ProsDecent health insurance program & 401K
ConsWork environment

If you are an engineer then this may be a good place to work. However the Corporate office does not offer much room for growth. .
