    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ledcor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company will train you however, you're going to be held accountable for all work. If something happens, they don't write you up, they fire you. I guess this isn't a Pro after all.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Sr. Management has no idea what they're doing. They've hired their own people (people who worked with them before on other projects in other states). They place the cart before the horse. Almost 3/4 of the people hired actually do not do anything because there's no work.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits, option to purchase shares, fun place to work most of the time

    Cons

    Ridiculous overhead makes it nearly impossible to win bids. Old boys club is at large.
