    Depending on what division and what job skills you bring, it can be a great company.

    Pros

    Have several great Senior PM's and Directors, job site is usually very well run.

    Division managers and some upper management could care less about the individual employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your key people before some other company does.

    I worked at dck worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The only positive comment I can think of is that it's better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    Bad pay. No raises for multiple years with no reasons given. Upon being hired I was told that I would be eligible for increases. I've had positive reviews with no follow up. No cost of living increases either. When inquiring about increases, upper management says they'll get back to you but never follow up. There are no training opportunities for possible promotions. There is no job security. No mentoring. The salary issues are well known throughout the company and are frequently discussed between coworkers. When I first inquired about an increase, several coworkers laughed and then stated they had not received a raise in more than 4 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better financial care of your experienced employees that don't have executive status. Do some analysis. Run the numbers for retainage versus recruitment! Google the current salaries for ALL positions. I did! Comparable positions in the same market are currently paying at least 10k more than you are offering new hires. Existing employees are far worse off. Mentor your people. Develop them into more valuable assets and you will have greater success. Have you taken a look at your turnover? If so, don't you find the numbers alarming?

    I worked at dck worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay rate is better than most, good for people who are end of career, or want to do all aspects of construction

    Cons

    Pay should be more consistent at all levels, there are DRASTIC differences. Bonuses should be consistent, bad for people beginning a career in a discipline that is not construction, lack of work hour flexibility, no remote work permitted, poor vacation time for anyone under 10 years.., women with sense of entitlement, on job sites and at corporate, who usurp authority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't understand what their goals are.. the company keeps changing. Pick "a" goal and stick with it.
