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

Project Manager, Construction in Ukiah:
"Ongoing."
Pros: I enjoy the people I work with and for.
Cons: Several employees do not take pride in providing good service.

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 Wayzata:
"High stress level, overworked."
Pros: Working with others. Not being behind a desk all day.
Cons: Working with others. Clients with unrealistic expectations.

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.
