The PENTA Building Group is truly an employee-focused company. The organizational motto is that the company builds amazing projects while it builds amazing people! PENTA’s original owners have instilled a people oriented company philosophy that resounds in everything we do. It can be hard not to get caught up in protecting the company from risk in this litigious day and age but if it means treating people right they will even face the risks that may arise.

Employees love the team spirit and the down to earth executives and senior leaders, who engage in fun jokes, hang out with the other employees and always practice an open door policy. Employees also appreciate PENTA Building Group’s incentive comp bonuses – generous bonuses offered based on the profit of the company each year. PENTA also hosts a popular company picnic – where they bring everyone and their families to Las Vegas for a picnic event each summer. The company also hosts the Intern vs. EMC music video competition – where the loser of the kickball game makes a fun video that the company loves! This project brings together every level of the company in a fun event! On top of all this, the company does an annual employee and family Mammoth Ski Trip.
