Somewhat Satisfied

Superintendent (Current Employee)

I have been working at JE Dunn Construction full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSalary, small company feel with big company security, very loyal to employees,

ConsWay too many VP's, tough to advance if you don't know someone, dead weight employees seem to slip through the cracks, bonus program is a joke, review process is very antiquated,

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees, change the bonus program or just get rid of it and give us all a raise

Great company if you are in Kansas

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at JE Dunn Construction full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis company presents well on paper. Benefits were outstanding on the whole. CEO works to promote the family experience within the company.

ConsThis company falls far short in recognizing the differences in the cultures to the regions it has a presence in. There is no real HR representation in the satellite offices. Promotion and bonus systems are based on who you are aligned with in the company rather than merit or percentage. Compensation for relocation needs serious upgrading if your home office is in any other than KC. Far behind the industry standards regarding safety education. If seeking employment with this JED, be cautious in believing everything on the website.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Committees are only as effective as the support they receive from you. Perhaps a class in cultural differences would help you understand that different regions must be maintained in alternative manners to be successful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good People - Hardworking and Talented - Work Hard Play Hard Culture -

Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at JE Dunn Construction full-time

ProsWork with talented, ambitious, hardworking people. Great C-level management. Culture of care for employees with effort given to creating perks at work. Good benefits. Nice facilities in Atlanta headquarters of SE region.

ConsI worked in a corporate support role (communications) so my experience may be different than operations. Overall, can't think of any cons. At the the time there seemed to be little opportunity for communications folks to do anything but write business proposals and not enough opportunities to learn about the business, but I hear management is working to improve on that.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep encouraging staff to grow, learn and contribute, including marketing folks. Develop opportunities for marketing/communications people to learn more about the business and operations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
