    Pros

    Great environment. Very progressive, open and knowledgeable people. Really is a great place to work - especially if you want to push the envelope. If you like the status quo then you should look somewhere else :)

    Cons

    Some old world/new world ways of thinking. But this is where the construction industry is at and not a specific failing of EllisDon.
