    Aggressive environment, but loyal for their own people.

    I have been working at Dragados full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Office culture is a little shady because they don't disclose all information about future plans. The leadership is great because they push everyone very hard and provide great support for that work.

    Cons

    The hours become challenging after working 15 hours a day for about 6 days a week.

    I have been working at Dragados full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunity for growth with this company and the people are amazing.

    Cons

    There are certain departments like accounting and traveling that need more assistance in order to maintain efficiency and organization. The traveling coordinator can use a whole department alone. There is not enough help in these departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accounting can use their own administrative assistant and traveling coordinator needs at least 3-4 people helping with traveling arrangements.
