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

    Pros

    Operates in diverse markets. Is profitable in most. Good benefits, average vacation policy. Technical Services US division is growing.

    Cons

    An old boys network. It's about who you know not what skills you have. Promotions are based on longevity, not talent. Management is closed-off, and there's no visible set of corporate goals tied to performance ratings. Some people in leadership positions are ill-equipped to be leaders and don't know how to support their front line employees.

    Advice to Management

    Open the kimono. Let your employees know what the long-term plan is, so they can set goals accordingly.

    Pros

    No pro's while working for LTS

    Cons

    No over time pay.
    Hours are unpredictable, work 2 hours one day and 10 the next. With this being said, this is a piece rate job.
    Management is only out for a paycheck.
    Blame always trickles down to the technicians.
    To much is expected from the technicians.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for issues caused by the management structure.

    Lots of opportunities and growth

    Cons

    Poor leadership in specific industries

    Think twice about decisions made that would make great people (shareholders) leave the company.

    Pros

    CAN make as much money as you want

    Cons

    Events team is a message, if you have a bad week and make less than $1000 you owe the company money, people running the events team are unprofessional, you get fired without warning, if you live in company housing and get canned you're homeless and they won't drive you anywhere- just leave you on the side of the road.

    Advice to Management

    Put the events managers through more training to get them to be more professional, they call out their employees in front of everyone and lead by threats. They lead from behind with a whip instead of infront like they should.

    had to be away from family and friends, mostly worked with men and not a lot of women in management roles
