Pros

good work environment, fair compensation. Overall I had a good experience working for PCL, definitely would recommend to those interested in the construction industry

Cons

had to move around. My position required me to move for a period of time. Definitely would not a draw back for some, but I prefer to stay in one location.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, big fat pay cheques, always busy, days go by fast, recommend this company for apprentices as a learning experience.

    Cons

    Long days, back breaking work, very dangerous situations, exposed to all weather conditions, as well as exposed to low IQ's and retarded schedule pushes (but that's not a PCL problem as much as it is a industry problem), no life outside of work - you WILL be working Saturdays, became a CLAC company in Calgary.

    Advice to Management

    not much, just in Alberta stop with the 44 hour work week mandate, I Know it's in the labour law but these working people have families and friends outside of work too, not just in management.


  2. Disappointing - you expect so much more from the reputation.

    Pros

    Flexible with work life balance.

    Cons

    PCL is a family of companies. I worked with a particular family company (Monad Industrial Constructors, Inc.) that was terrible. Lots of false, misleading promises. If you're not a man with 30 years on-site experience, you won't move up.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. Invest in technology. Invest in educated people, aside from engineers. The processes are incredibly archaic which is surprising from such an established company.
