Construction Project Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Construction Project Manager in Fort Collins:
"Start with a large company."
Study plans and specifications and spend a lot of time learning the intimate details of the job.

Construction Project Manager in Albuquerque:
Watch out being an unexpected surprise when hired. It quickly turns into a demanding expectation. If you are the only one putting in 50, 60, 70 hours a week, don't do it. The company will keep piling more on you letting the others slack. Do you share effectively and in a timely manner offer to help as long as it is appreciated. When it starts being demanded scale back. All employers will get as much out of you as they can for as little as they can. Its not personal just watch how you let yourself get used.
