Project Manager, Construction Reviews

What is it like working as a Project Manager, Construction?

Project Manager, Construction in Syracuse:
"A Consistent challenge for problem solvers."
Pros: Everyday I get to resolve problems. Some common while others fairly unique. Deadlines and completion points bleed one into the next. There's no real delineation of a start or finish outside of the fiscal calendar. Just grinding. But something about that combination of challenges I love!
Cons: Low structure, low accountability, the "just give them this" attitude... Low motivation and lack of drive as a unit and many times individually. If it takes more than three clicks of swipes most people won't engage with it at my place.

Project Manager, Construction in Clarksville:
"Type of work, challenges, project management."
Pros: I went to school to do exactly what I do everyday. I love my job. It is fairly flexible, if I had to leave for some reason, I could. We are like a little family.
Cons: I feel that I am under paid. I am the only one in our office with my Bachelor's Degree and I am the least paid. I am 23 and a female. It leads me to believe I am being discriminated. They have hired guys at pay more than I make, and again they have no further education but come in off the bat making more money and I work so hard. I am very dedicated and love my job whole-heartedly.

Project Manager, Construction in Los Angeles:
"Making the world a better place!"
Pros: What I enjoy the most is helping our clients receive lower electric bills while helping our environment at the same time. I enjoy speaking with them and updating them on the status of their installation. Helping installers and consultants schedule their week and figure out puzzles.
Cons: Sometimes, while working in this field there are certain things that are not in our control. Every case is different and unfortunately due to other companies processing our installation process takes a little longer.
