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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, flex time is available, although frowned upon.

    Cons

    Technology is extremely outdated. Upper management has completely lost touch with daily operations. This is still an old time construction company, run like an old boys club. Raises and promotions have more to do with who you know and not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your employees names. Walk around the office and learn what people do. When employees ask questions both out loud and annonomously through the website, respond to them. If one person is asking it, ten are probably thinking it. Look at your turnover and investigate the real reasons behind it.
