    Pros

    As said in the title, EllisDon consistently pays its employees above average, and the culture is great. No FaceTime or inane expectations - you are based solely on your results.

    Cons

    This is a company where you come for the long term - if you're goal is to move on to another penultimate career goal that isn't in the scope of this company, might be more beneficial to try another avenue (although this would still work)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and vision! Company is innovative - just need to ensure focus remains on the core competencies. Kudos!

    I worked at EllisDon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, very friendly and interactive, good working conditions and health and safety policy. Good wages and human resource management.

    Not many cons to speak of, generally good experience. Only cons would be inevitable conflicts during interactions between workers in different trades and between subcontractors.

    A bit of attention should be payed to the management of the interaction between subtrades and employees to ensure no lapses in communication or avoidable conflict.

    Open and honest people, encouraged to take ownership of your mistakes without fear of unfair reprimand. Employees matter more than the bottom line
