  1. Great Company

    I have been working at Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co.

    Pros

    Management is always on the lookout for great ideas and eager to listen to employees. HDCC gets a lot of the biggest and coolest construction projects in the state.

    Cons

    Easy to get stuck in a routine if you let it happen... this is true of every construction company, though.

    Pros

    My best experiences a Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company always came when team work was involved.

    Cons

    I was unfortunate when there was no work available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bidding on new work. Keep your skilled workers working.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Working for Hawaiian Dredging allowed me to support my family and live in the beautiful state of Hawaii. It has been a great company so far!

    Cons

    Management and communication within has sometimes been stifled. Free overtime has sometimes been overbearing. Other than that, it has been great.
