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

Construction Project Manager in Denver:
"Political, stress level, even tempered."
Pros: Rewarding when done right.
Cons: Pay for work expected.

Construction Project Manager in San Francisco:
"Great opportunity for those who can do."
Pros: I have endless opportunities to learn and develop. Smart employees who demonstrate capability are promoted quickly and based upon their strengths. Management seems willing to make changes based on employee ideas/suggestions. I have the freedom to do my work as I think it should be completed as long as it meets or exceeds company expectations. People recognize our brand and those who are familiar with our product know it carries great value.
Cons: The support for my position is limited and many times there are tasks that I must complete due to the inability of others to finish them. Management, while willing, doesn't seem to be able to make the changes that are most necessary to fix what is obviously afflicting the company. Much of the culture of the company is derived from the Japanese "mothership", which makes us less agile here in the US. There is very little guidance as to best practices and means, which leads to inconsistency in the level of quality achieved between projects.
