For over 150 years, St. Louis, MO-based McCarthy Building Companies has been creating this country. They take on projects big and small and see all of their projects, no matter the size or stature as vitally important to the community as the next.
Even though their goals are lofty, to always achieve more than they expect they can, they have a strong culture and set of values in place to reach them, if not exceed them.
Sam Hutchinson, the Founder & President of Interface Construction Corporation, said, "Under McCarthy's guidance, our company grew, elevating us to a true general contractor in just a few short years. We gained technical expertise, brought on employees who are still with us today and achieved the financial security to help us to grow and thrive."
Everything that McCarthy does, they do with these 3 core values at the center of it:
McCarthy heavily invests in sustainable practices and the advancement of Green Construction. They've done more than $7.5 billion in Green Construction Projects.
The culture at McCarthy is built on different perspectives. They see diversity as a key piece of their success. "We firmly believe that we need to have a workforce, both a professional and a trades workforce that is diverse. That's white, black, green, red, yellow, you know, whatever. Male, female, all age groups. If you get a group of people with many diverse perspectives together and you focus on a problem, you're going to have a much stronger outcome than if you've got four guys that think like me," one employee said.
It is also very much a culture built on giving back and bettering communities. Every employee gets a paid volunteer day a year, to go and help do something in their community. McCarthy's volunteering program is called the Heart Hat program. Lisa Sullivan, a McCarthy employee, said that most employees that take that day don't stop there. She said that a lot of employees get out and volunteer several times a year, on weekends or for special occasions.
A project superintendent said, "McCarthy is the best company I've ever worked for. If you're up for a challenge and want to work with the best people in the business, this is the place for you."
The McCarthy HQ is located in the Ladue area of St. Louis. This is a growing area with lots of great living options as well as dining, shopping, and nightlife. It is only minutes away from some of St. Louis's best attractions such as the Zoo, art museum, and several downtown neighborhoods.
Though the corporate HQ is in St. Louis, the company has 16 other locations all across the country. Some of those include Dallas, Atlanta, Austin, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Francisco, and many more.
McCarthy has one of the more thorough benefits packages you are likely ever going to see. They have top of the line health care coverage, as well as great retirement plans and 401k. The company offers extremely competitive salaries and promises equal pay. They even have substantial equal pay policies in place. They have performance bonuses that all employees are eligible for.
