Main Office based employees works 5 day/week, 8hrs / day Site assigned employees works 5.5day/week, 8hrs/days Overtime is generous but is well monitored to avoid exploitation Paid Time off (leave) composed of 10 leaves at 1st year and plus 1 leave per month.
Lower than expected salary
Very collaborative and cooperative. All employees are team players. You could learn from each other. And they'll teach you how to manage not just time but also how you communicate from the gencon workers in construction and also the allied professionals you are working with.
There are free lunches sometimes.
Sometimes you are assigned too far from your hometown.
Job Work / Life Balance: Dependent on the Project Status & Stakeholders Salary / Benefits: Good for starting and single professionals (not supporting a family) but not for long-term or settlement maybe unless you're on the Managerial & Executive Level. Since it's a consultancy industry, you cannot demand an above average or highly satisfying compensation and benefits. Job Security / Advancement: Performance Evaluation is qualitative, thus there's no clear ordinal basis of ranking. But for a long-term appraiser, maybe he/she already knows how to get his/her target results. It's a 360-degree evaluation system but ratio is 10% (self) : 90% (by immediate superior) and objectivity of the appraiser cannot be guaranteed. Management: The Executive Management is good and cares for its people in various ways. However, just like any other organization, they really cannot secure their appointed officers/managers' effective performance. The bulk of workload is evidently shouldered by the rank & file staff and there are times that even the managerial responsibilities/duties are transferred to the rank & file. Job Culture: Generally, the company culture is good and ideal. However, it is inevitable that there are various micro-culture within the specific team of different projects which might not necessarily be aligned with that of the company. It is really dependent on the head/manager's style of each team. There's no guarantee of culture singularity despite common company system or protocol.
My 1 year work experience under DCI is both fulfilling and challenging. As a starter in the construction management industry, DCI has taught me a lot of work ethics, the management is oganized, the work environment is stable and healthy, the balance in working life even under pressure is still present, and in DCI, the welfare of the employees are well taken care of.
As an student intern, i learned from my supervisor that not everything can be learned from school. I learned a lot about project quality control and its importance to clients.
HR staff is not well organized with their schedules they kept on waiting me a thousands years before they stepped out to see me. Should use emails and messages to communicate with the applicants whose living in far provinces and should not insist to report in HO Buendia just to give a small paper for the list of requirements. Mostly, engrs and CPM should refrained saying bad words in the office area.
The people are very welcoming which makes the work environment a productive and fun place to work in.
Given that this is a project management company, hectic days are expected. I learned lots of things regarding construction procedures, materials, and terms. The people are very welcoming and the hardest part of the job is going on site and facing its dangers. However, overall, it is fun and conducive.
Free lunches and good people.
Company is very good..Management is very supportive and all other positive traits. The company can be considered a long time employment consideration. Employees and Staffs are very polite and courteous.
Bonuses and perpetual salary increases and performance bonuses
Needs patients and deep understanding of stakeholders and clients
Provides technical expertise and main support to the Construction Project Manager on coordination and mechanical, plumbing, sanitary, fire protection and LPG System aspects of the work ensuring the proper and timely execution, monitoring, control and close out/acceptance of the project all in accordance with the Construction Project Management Plan (CPMP)
I learned a lot from my competitive bosses about engineering management , they let us experience the real deal, we are working as engineers not just as intern. They involved us in the meeting for preparation of certain activities
The work place is really suitable for the work and the management is really approachable. The working hours is good enough for an employee. Here I learned how to do punch lists, reports, estimates and many more. I really enjoyed staying at Ascott Makati where the site I was assigned.
Works starts from Monday to Saturday for site based employees (Project engineer & Architects). Skills such as construction management can be obtained. Benefits like Medical Card, bonuses, Transportation Allowance, communication allowance and staff house are provided. It depends on the site location if you will be comfortable with your job environment. the co-workers are the best part of my job.
