    I worked at Great Lakes Dredge & Dock full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company will be around for a long time. Their work is needed and the government will always fund the jobs.

    Cons

    Completely dysfunctional management culture, especially at the top. Favoritism and connections are what matters, not your skills or ability. The leaders have no idea what is going on at the job sites. The company always wins jobs but does not make as much money as they should.

    I have been working at Great Lakes Dredge & Dock full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Travel on a two week on, one week off rotation. Company pays for flights and apartments on project sites.

    Cons

    Work extremely long hours, sometimes project management can be lazy forcing you to cover their slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers to be better at their job. Teach project management that delegating isn't their only objective.
