    I worked at Matrix Service full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good pay if you're willing to learn and be a hard worked. You get sometimes get downtime to chill and rest.

    Cons

    It can get pretty harsh working in 100+ degree weather inside of a tank that was once filled with oil or gasoline. Hopefully you get a good foreman

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty good management. No complaints.

    Former Employee - Project Manager

    I worked at Matrix Service full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is a lot of commodity between the estimators. I enjoy coming to work as I work with a great bunch of individuals that make every day unique and rewarding. I enjoy the take-off work and complexity of constructability issues, which is different on every project we bid. We are growing our EPC work and it is very rewarding to see you hard work pay off. Matrix does not usually require overtime for the estimating department, not to say that we don’t work overtime. It makes it very nice to have most weekends off.

    Cons

    The direct management seems to overlook your contribution to the company. Great benefits, pay is below industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice, don’t forget those that put you in your current position with the work that you have currently.

    Pros

    Good matching from company for contributions to retirement investment plan.

    I have been working at Matrix Service full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good strong growing company, I like the direction we are going, long term employment opportunities are there for people that want to work hard.

    Cons

    Project managers seem to get recognition and bonuses for work and up sales done by Superintendents. No bonus programs. We are told we will get bonuses that checks just need to be signed but nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people that really take care of our customers (It's not the PM's) reward the folks that deal with the clients, employees, Engineers, Inspectors, payroll, PM's, vendors, subs, equipment, tools, material, schedules, budget, Managment and of course SAFETY.

    Pros

    Top pay. Good training. Emphasis on Safety.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers leads to disorganization and poor communication.

    Keep the same people on a crew as long as possible. This results in efficiency and positive crew member responses.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Blaine, WA (US)

    I worked at Matrix Service full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are willing to work, they are willing to teach. You will find bad supervision in any company but for the most part Matrix does a good job of weeding out the bad apples. Good benefits for full time employees. Great safety culture up in the Washington area.

    Cons

    It can have a little of the good old boy attitude, employment will usually start out as short term, turnaround related work.
    Control of work at the facility I was at, created a lazy, slow work attitude, this by design is to increase the safety culture, but in my opinion has adverse affects.

    I have been working at Matrix Service

    Pros

    the money makes it worth it and the people are good to be around. can't make this much with out a degree

    Cons

    hours are really hard to do no life outside of work. hard to juggle family life and kids daily schedules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we need better benefits for people who have been with the company for a long time. Should not have to start medical over as much as we do.
