I appreciate that the company strives to uphold their values and puts a significant interest in relationships within and outside of the company, rather than only judging success by the bottom line. I see myself continuing to grow and getting the opportunity to build a wide range of exciting projects.

“As a superintendent it is great to know that we not only have the support and backing of the job team, but that upper management values its employees and is always there to listen with an open door. At W.E. O’Neil, building great relationships is not just talk, but a real commitment proven by the great repeat-customers that we get to work with. We don’t just look at our jobs as another building to build; they’re something we can come back to years later and take pride in.”

I have spent the better part of my career at W.E. ONeil, 37 years to be more precise. This is a “family of Companies” and I have seen this to be true for my entire career. Even in my early days as a Project Engineer, communication has always been very open and available. The doors are always open. In addition, I have seen billions of dollars of construction in my career with W.E. O’Neil and never once did I see anyone in the firm waiver from providing the best possible product for the Owners regardless of the efforts and cost needed. We have always delivered what we have been hired to do. I chose the right company to work for and develop my career in the Chicago construction industry.

“Our People are our Competitive Edge” is one of W.E. O’Neil’s values that has positively impacted my development at this company. W.E. O’Neil has given me opportunities beyond my normal job duties to grow as a well-rounded professional through leading various committees, contributions to strategic planning, and participation in training and recruiting efforts. These opportunities have shown me how W.E. O’Neil truly demonstrates their values and how they care about the development of each and every employee.

Coming from another construction company, I always heard a lot of talk about integrity and doing things the right way; however, at W.E. O’Neil these principles are a way of life rather than simply discussion points. I am proud to be a part of W.E. O’Neil and stand behind not only our finished product, but the manner in which we complete the work as well.
