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.

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.
Pros
Free lunches and good people.

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.
Pros
Medical Card, bonuses, Transportation Allowance, communication allowance and staff house
Cons

A typical day at work is more on inspection, you will learn a lot with life especially when talking to the workers at site, also to the engineers around you. For DCI management, they are all easily approachable. The hardest part of the job is to solve issues during the work is on the critical stage. the most enjoyable part of the job is when you reach one milestone of the project like Topping Off, Closing the Facade, etc.
Pros
Free meals when having a staff meeting
Cons
Calling you from work during your rest day

I've been motivated since day 1 til my last day. My mentor together with the other employees are very fun to be with and they're very helpful. The management is strict but they will give you a good response. I've been assigned to one of their project on site. The office on site was great and it's very comfortable.

DCI is the first and best construction management company in the Philippines. With a number of high-caliber projects under its belt, it's a company to work with for life. But I need a bigger salary, so I went abroad to find that greener opportunity.
Pros
Continuous training and opportunities for learning
Cons
None

The strong leadership in the construction industry, the coordination of each team members, the task assignments and the presence of the management in every requests that we have. These are the major edges of DCI in other construction management that are really impressive.
