I have been working at Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Incredible history on the Islands. Respected by all locals and Subcontractors for the most part.

Cons

A dinosaur in a lot of ways. Also poor communication skills. Partly culture, partly just bad habits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your good people more. Lose the folks who bruise your reputation with the Owners and the Subs. A GC is nothing without their Subs trust.

    I have been working at Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co.

    Pros

    Good training opportunities.
    Lots of internal noise and excitement about the use of BIM technologies.
    For a big company, it sometimes has a family feel.

    Cons

    They ask a lot in return for compensation.
    Don't expect a raise.
    Nothing is done to motivate workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and retain talent!
    Provide annual raises to at least keep up with inflation.
    Listen to and provide support to the younger generation of employees - They are your future.
