Project Manager, Construction Advice

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

Project Manager, Construction in Austin:
"Get Money."
Patience is good, but make sure your employer puts his money where he mouth is when it comes to seeing raises and promotions you've been promised. In my experience, if you don't help/force it along, it won't come to fruition on its own. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, I've learned that the hard way, since I am typically someone who prefers to appear grateful and quietly content. Meanwhile, those more verbal advance quicker.

Project Manager, Construction in Hazlet:
"Advice."
Write everything down. When I was young and in school, I thought I could remember everything. Turns out you only remember stuff after taking notes and then reviewing them later. Turns out that is a really important part of your professional life that you need to continue.

Project Manager, Construction in Grangeville:
"If you are not improving your the problem."
There are so many processes that are in desperate need of improvement within the construction industry. The tools are there to reduce costly delays and changes on projects, they are just not being properly used. Too many of the lessons learned are not being looked at and incorporated into the system of construction for major work. The tide is turning, but there is a long way to go and there is plenty of room for motivated talent to grow and be part of significant improvements in the near future of this industry.

Project Manager, Construction in Springfield:
"Not take on unrealistic workload."
Once you start doing more work than you should- you are expected to continue and you have no one to blame other than yourself. Strive for work-life balance and keep you attitude out of project management.

Project Manager, Construction in Indianapolis:
"•Share your knowledge about the daily responsibilities, care."
Never assume you know anything, always be willing to learn from others in the field and managers. Time management is essential and if you don't have thick skin, this is not the industry for you.
