    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.

    There is nothing important to notice.

    I have been working at Ledcor full-time

    Pros

    Ledcor is a company that is very diverse in the services it offers, and contains many different divisions (e.g. Construction, Pipeline, Highway Maintenance, etc.) Because of this, learning reception was challenging in a positive way -- meaning there is a lot to learn, but it is an interesting and dynamic company with lots to offer.

    Cons

    The downside to being a receptionist at Ledcor is what I imagine to be the downside of being a receptionist anywhere -- after you've learned the job and have familiarized yourself with the daily tasks, it because rather mundane and repetitive. This is not so much a negative reflection of the company, but possibly just the nature of the position.

    Advice to Management

    Management at Ledcor does a good job of giving their employees space to do their work independently, and never micro-manages. However, Management sometimes assumes their employee's level of knowledge matches their own, and can grow frustrated when their subordinates require additional assistance to complete a task.

    Pros

    Great training programs that teach you how to sell. Personal and professional development. Phenomenal pay-you get paid for what you do which means more growth. Lot's to learn.

    Cons

    Since the sales department at Ledcor is quite new, they are still learning to develop the business as they go. No real work/life balance. They pretty much own your life.
