    Pros

    company treats employees as investments, dynamic work environment, extremely talented and good people, company culture, awesome office, great employee development, progressive in thinking and practices, work hard/play hard attitude. I've worked for over 5 construction companies in 3 different continents. My current role with JE Dunn is the best job I've ever had. I wake up early and am eager to go to work.

    Cons

    doesn't do any international work... maybe one day?

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing


  2. Project Engineer Review

    Former Employee - Project Engineer
    Former Employee - Project Engineer

    I worked at JE Dunn Construction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Project managers and superintendents are extremely knowledgeable
    Fun work culture
    Was able to work on some very cool projects
    Company has decent benefits

    Cons

    Did not have a good work/life balance
    I was underpaid for the amount of hours I was expected to work, although I realize I was at the bottom of the ladder and compensation would have increased as I moved up
    Supervisors were not very supportive

    Advice to Management

    One thing that could be improved is communication between supervisors and their staff

    Fun company to work for.

    Cons

    Lack of training for new hires. Expected to know how to perform tasks without being shown.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new employees, not just the generic training but with department/job specific training.

    Pros

    Great company with a lot of great leaders. JE Dunn is very active in the community because they know that if they serve the community the community will serve them.

    Cons

    Internal politics that comes with all companies. You need to have a higher level manager as an advocate to push for you. If you don't then merits will only get so far.

    Advice to Management

    Push Technology.

    Pros

    Feel fortunate to work with intelligent individuals who enjoy having a good time while doing meaningful work. Leaders truly lead by example. Great work environment. Office was recently featured on Good Day Atlanta as a "Cool Office". Open floor plan and even the Executive Level leaders chose not to have an office.

    Cons

    None at this time. Great company!

    Advice to Management

    You have a great thing here! Keep enhancing an already great culture.

    I worked at JE Dunn Construction

    Pros

    Good environment, culture. Family oriented/ family owned. Goals are set annually for each individual by their supervisor

    Cons

    Some individuals work only for themselves, don't contribute to the team. Hard to move up

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your biggest asset, don't let them go over a silly squabble. Don't give insulting counteroffers.
