    It's a great place to work.

    Administrative (Former Employee)
    Valley, NE

    ProsThe company culture is great and management is generally quite ethical. There's a real employees are family feeling. Excellent subsidized cafeteria at the Valley site.

    ConsThe Valley site is pretty isolated, although not far from Omaha. There is a bit of a glass ceiling for women in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPreserve the culture that founder, Robert B. Daugherty, established and Valmont will remain a great place to work into the future.

    This is a great company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a big company that is a leader in most or all of its market segments but still has the feel of a small company.

    ConsValmont would be well served to open communication with all employees. Most of the tightly held communication gets around as rumors anyway.

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

    Valmont Structures, A Good Place to Work.

    Accountant (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work atmosphere is excellent. The benefits that are offered to the employees are very good, including the health insurance, 401K options, Payflex availability. The attendance policy is easy to follow.

    ConsThere is some lack of communication between top management and employees which leads to uncertainty as to job stability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the employees informed as to changes that will be affecting them. This will help to eliminate the desire for good employees to look elsewhere for a career.

    A great company, but not a great employer

    Systems (Current Employee)
    Valley, NE

    ProsA solid reputable company. Pay and benefits are very good. Friendly employees.

    ConsNeed to reevaluate work-life balance options and flexible and/or telecommute options for administrative employees. Very much focused on this is the way we've always done it, so change happens very slowly, if ever.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed a formal way to develop the leaders and employees. Training should be centralized. Some thought should be given on how to get talented employees on board and retain those that are currently employed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSolid company with good diversification across several industries, a global presence which helps to cushion the company from economic turns

    ConsLots of people with long tenure and memories, not a lot of drive for various locations to leverage their collective size and work together as a cohesive company

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping an eye on the past is a good thing as long as you don't live there.

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