    I worked at Ledcor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co workers, Great experience and very real world applicable skills

    Cons

    Pay, depending on where your working and how busy it is you can make some good money, or basically nothing. At times not even enough to pay the bills. This one is more personal but I find management to be very useless, they might have made great technicians but do not know how to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of them and start with fresh blood.

    Pros

    I strongly believe that everyone- despite their desired profession-has a lot to gain from a year of sales experience in an organization dedicated to growth and development.

    Cons

    there aren't many, Ledcor encourages growth and development. If you are hoping to progress within the company you need to be doing the right things and you need to be sharing your goals with people that can help you attain them.
