    I have been working at Ledcor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Where to start, culture is key in this company. The Edmonton office has a gym that is free to use for employees, their family and friends. They have gym classes during the week, an atrium you can rent for birthday parties and even an onsite massage therapist. Free coffee, tea and fruit. The cafeteria is subsidized and for a low cost you can have an amazing breakfast or lunch. Benefits are standard, Christmas bonus are always great and a standard 3 weeks vacation, however they are super flexible.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't the best in the industry, however their perks make up for it.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth industry, great benefits, beautiful office location, good people, and flexible working environment.

    Cons

    Needs a little more rigor around management practices; it's hard to execute the business strategy without clarity all the way down to the troops.

    Advice to Management

    There is some obvious deadweight. Get rid of it and redirect a couple senior management positions to introducing management best practices across all staff.

    Pros

    World class organization to work for. Look after their people and the community. Lots of interesting work and repeat clients.

    Cons

    Not manny that matter. Has some of the issues large companies face but has been able to still look after their people well. Succession changes loom positive.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement if you are not self entitled and willing to prove your worth.
    Very competitive wages for designation groups.
    Evolving company with excellent growth and lots of projects.
    Lots of opportunity for overtime.
    Most people are great to work with and have a good safety culture mind set.
    The company will go above and beyond (usually) to keep you working on smaller projects between other major projects.
    The company is starting to employees younger people into supervisor / management roles.

    Cons

    Management and other higher segments are fractured with no engagement with "lower level" employees.
    The company hockey team and everything around it gives you an advantage over other employees.
    Too many divided lines between segments of the company that should be working together.
    The "old boys" network is very strong and used to doing things the old way not changing with the times.
    A large group of Superintendents and PM's are terrible planners / executors keeping "the cards to the chest" Its rare to be given an outlook to be able to plan ahead. Then you get raked over the coals and micro managed because you spent too much on rush supplies.
    The young superintendents are generally mentored by senior superintendents so they get great knowledge but pick up bad habits.

    Advice to Management

    See cons.
    We also need to hold sub trades to a higher standard.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time

    Pros

    The company cares about your growth and development, they are not just looking to fill a position. There is a great team of people working at Ledcor that are easy to work with and are very helpful with any questions that come up. Ledcor is also a very diverse company, which provides a lot of learning opportunities and makes work more interesting.

    Cons

    Nothing that really stands out to me.
