What other contractors are saying about Walsh Group's payment practices

How would you describe their payment process, speed, and policy?

Never again. Most dishonest group of individuals and never to be trusted. Be warned.

Payments have been pretty decent, their accounting team is very proactive and helpful. We've had issues with getting change orders approved and ready for billing, even though the work is completed.

They don't pay even the contracted amount. They withhold payment and threaten to sue before offering reduced payments. Not to be trusted.

Walsh is the most difficult large Contractor that we have ever worked for as a subcontractor and we have worked for many large contractors in the region. Walsh will do anything they can to stall payment, and pay as little as possible, as well not provide items outlined in the contract. We had to write a very angry letter and threaten to leave the project to start getting paid. The Walsh project team does not honor agreements and continuously searches the subcontract language to try to use anything they can against their subs to avoid payment and responsibility. I highly recommend excluding most of the language in Walsh's unfair subcontract prior to signing and clearly outline payment terms. In our experience with Walsh they are more interested in claiming the small things with the owner and battling their subs over minor items, than trying to work through issues and build the project. Walsh is way behind schedule and is currently more focused on battling their subs and the owner than actually building. Get everything in writing when dealing with Walsh, as verbal agreements and meeting discussions will not be honored if management changes their mind about something. In the future when bidding to Walsh, we will add more money to our bids compared to other contractors to deal with the unfair treatment and extra overhead it takes to battle Walsh to receive payment. We have heard from other subs that their experience is similar to ours. It's astonishing that a large corporation treats their small subcontractors like this.

They typically request the work with authorization, then when it come's time to pay, they argue weather the work was valid. Additionally they continually hold fund's and make promise's to pay that are not upheld.

Slow pay, slow processing of Change Orders. Some up to a year
