    I worked at Lane Construction full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is a pay check however temporary it may be. You are able to work a lot of hours while the job last.

    Cons

    The company's core values looks good on paper, but they don't practice what they have written. If you are part of the good ole boys you are safe and can do no wrong. If not, you are used up and then thrown away without a moments notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees that actually do the work that makes the company money. They will tell you the truth, but when they tell you the truth protect them.

    I have been working at Lane Construction full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    nice trucks,a very small amount of management ,im thinking just one whos name i will keep anoyomis actually care in raleigh.the pros are for the management who are useless,cant even bid a job and get it.this management are driving high dollar ford pick ups and on a salary,while playing golf on company time and having bbqs on the side of the office.how does lane let this happen?all pros for the useless lows.shame on lane.

    Cons

    working at lane raleigh division as a driver you better have money behind you.the minority haulers are giving all the work while company employees get sent home,i guess lane likes wasting money on trucks and insurance payments cause the lane trucks just sit looking pretty.again,shame on lane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    shut raleigh down and get ride of the waste up in the front office.

    Pros

    4 weeks vacation first year

    Cons

    Old school of thought... Sr. management thinks what worked 75 years ago will work today.
    Extremely high turnover. New top talent leave the company and the old mediocre remain.
    The " Care for People" value is perceived as a big joke.
    Privately held company means "no innovation" but high nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To go public and remove ALL the dead weight that they have been carrying for the last 50 years.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere with a lot of humor thrown in. Management has shown concern for employee's and promotes growth in company

    Cons

    My cons would be full-time hourly non-union vacation policy is lacking since we typically work 50 work weeks similar to full-time salary.

    Pros

    Some really good people doing the actual work

    Cons

    Lots of entitlement and no accountability at upper management levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with your employees and REALLY listen to them. Too big too fast left you disconnected.
