    I worked at dck worldwide-Large, Pennsylvania

    Pros

    Diversity of locations worldwide. Company will go above and way beyond to get the right people in the right places...2 or 3 times, if necessary. Good 401k and medical. Steady work, tho a bit overtasked at times. Outstanding safety program. Outstanding admin support.

    Cons

    If you're in the upper echelon...you're in like Flint...if not, you stay on the outside looking in. Career training is on your own, no company help outside of trades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide continuing education incentives, at least. Let talent speak for itself instead of being smothered.

    I worked at dck worldwide-Large, Pennsylvania full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people here. Unfortunately, the Company is starting to Hemorrhage good people.

    Cons

    Most of upper management wont even answer a call, or return a Email to you. Not paying subs, not paying Suppliers. got to a supplier and they say no more credit. and its very embarrassing as a Supe to have to go put the stuff back on the shelf. For some reason, management started listening to the MBA, degree folks more than the seasoned professional's a couple years ago. Not a good choice! Then there is the Screw up , move up program! Under bid a job By MILLIONS! Become a VP!.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have so much talent in the middle management area. VP's with 35 years, Superintendents and other folks with Years in the Biz! LISTEN to them , let them get into the projects early on and check the School Boys Numbers! Teach Upper management REAL LEADERSHIP! Not answering a call or email, shows you don't give a damn! Talk to your people. Let them know how bad things are for real! Ask them: We are here right now, but need your help to get here. Will you help us?? Right now the people are Dying for a Great Leader!!! In absence of that. they listen to rumors, and you are loosing your talent as we speak...

    I have been working at dck worldwide-Large, Pennsylvania

    Pros

    Flexible environement, friendly people,good values and culture

    Cons

    HR management needs to improve. They are more imposing their thoughts rather than accepting the willingness of the employee. Always looking for their profit without considering what an employee wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR management should be more friendly and warm-welcoming. They aren't making things crystal clear when taking decisions.

    Pros

    Stable Company. Willing to spend money to succeed.

    Cons

    low pay with long hours. location of work not ideal. Involved in company merger and was not great. Manager acted like he was doing me a favor by allowing me to work 70 hour weeks for a very low salary and would get offended when I brought up a pay increase so I left for a much better job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talking salary options in not an insult to the company or the manager.

    I have been working at dck worldwide-Large, Pennsylvania

    Pros

    My time so far has been great. People and atmosphere make it a job that I enjoy doing every day.

    Cons

    I find that sometimes the communication between departments or branches is lacking, to the point that it is costly to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to pursue the company goals, but do not sacrifice the spirit and behavior of your employees, which has been expressed before.

    Pros

    Good values by the work force

    Cons

    Poor upper management relative to treatment of employed subcontractors and work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide better treatment to the workers in their daily needs. The upper management and the workers are too far separated in pay and benifit status. Loss of confidence by the workers will result in worker flight.
