    Pros

    Steady employment, growth opportunities for me

    Cons

    High stress, heavy workload and intense personalities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review how individuals are promoted to management as it is not always based on skills and abilities. ALso need to look at how company operates in markets other than Kansas City, Mo as it is not very well received.

    Pros

    Strong, stable, loyal, caring, hard working, driven, good use of new technology.

    Cons

    Slow to resolve internal issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to train the manager how to be managers... Just because someone has worked here for a long time and can run a project doesn't mean they know how to manage people and help them on their career path.

    I have been working at JE Dunn Construction full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most Pro-Employee company that I have worked for in 20 years. Gives back to the community. Really seems to care about people and the communities where they work. ESOP, 401K matching and healthcare good. Encourages participation in community events and charity (United Way!) Good culture, great people and the safety culture is good, for construction.

    Cons

    Really big company, can loose touch with some corners of operation. Salary is a little below other companies. Really not very open to change. Old policies, no one knows why they exist, are sacred calves. Accountability needs SIGNIFICANT work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved, ask questions, let people know you are there and talk specifically to individuals about what exactly you see that they do that is important. E.G. Safety, quality and other pillars / KPI in specific terms that relate to the person with whom you are talking.

  7.  

    Great Internship Experience

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at JE Dunn Construction full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    JE Dunn provided lots of opportunities during my internship that made my summer a great learning experience. I was able to do project management office work, get exposure in the field, and attend lots of great intern events put on by the company. Good internship pay and great people to work with.

    Cons

    I was thrown in to things very quickly and was expected to catch on and figure things out a lot on my own. Although that is good experience, in some situations it made it difficult to figure out what was going on without some initial guidance.

    Pros

    Compensation was very good. Advancement opportunities were available

    Cons

    Upper management did not keep tight reigns on their middle managers, thus allowing them to run the ship any way the felt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They appeared to have taken care of this after I left the company.

    Working in the smaller regional offices can be difficult, especially when attempting to challenge the corporate standard. JE Dunn is on the leading edge of innovation in several market sectors.
