The metrics and alignment to strategic goals are clear. Communication is very good and all executive level employees are very professional and approachable.

    When you are learning you are challenged. Fast pace. Demand for improvement is high.

    I have been working at Dayton Superior full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like my actual work and co-workers, it is a fun and positive environment. Dayton Superior is investing a lot in the business and its employees. There is a huge push in employee development, and I feel like I have made the right decision in joining Dayton.

    Cons

    The company sets some pretty ambitious goals, and there is quite a bit of pressure to reach those goals so it can be a stressful environment. Historically, the company has laid off some people, so there are residual hard feelings about some of those lay-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more frequently about what is going on. Short little daily or weekly updates would be great!

    I have been working at Dayton Superior full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has gone through a challenging financial period, learned from it and pulled themselves out of it. There is a focus on building stronger, bigger customer relationships and capitalizing on market growth trends. It's far from a start-up but still has an entrepreneurial attitude. The CEO is inspiring.

    Cons

    This is a growth company, not a business-as-usual company, so the team needs to be on their toes.....ready to contribute new ideas when they are needed and support changes in direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management gets high ratings in my book.

    Pros

    This is the greatest company I have ever worked for. Dayton Superior truly cares about their employees with a focus on training, developing and promoting from within.

    All of the teams that are in place from corporate to sales, chemicals to forming, and engineering to the plant workers are the strongest, most supportive, I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The employees and teams at Dayton Superior are top notch ambitious, motivated and intelligent individuals who genuinely want to help each other and the company continue to be successful.

    Cons

    Winter! Areas of the business are seasonal. When construction slows during the winter months in certain areas of the country so do we.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's keep up the great work! We are going places people!!!

    I have been working at Dayton Superior full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was on par with similar positions I've held with other companies. I got to work at many of the different plants throughout the country, and had all positive experiences. IT, technology, inventory systems all work well. I never had a question that I couldn't get answered. Safety is important. Company is expanding in the US as the industry continues to improve, and internationally as other countries adopt higher standards for construction projects.

    Cons

    The conditions that led to my resignation bother me. Certain members of the company have too much pressure on them, resulting in a lack of good judgement or trust in their subordinates. Some locations are moderately under-staffed. Promotion possibilities are limited and they do pass over qualified employees for outside hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In general management support was good.
