Slow at paying!

I don’t understand why some of these contractors are having such difficulties with payment. We’ve worked for Suffolk for over a decade and have never had any issues with payments. True, being that they are a larger more formal contractor there’s going to be more paperwork involved in getting paid but that’s all understandable and comes with all contractors of their size.

I can verify previous reviews about their delays in payment. On several projects, Suffolk intentionally mis-led, delayed, and otherwise sought to get out of payment. This includes payment for signed labor tickets on work already performed. They had my team spend countless hours revising documents to get approved, only to reject all of them outright. They are dishonest and not worthy of their national status.
