    I worked at Great Lakes Dredge & Dock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Responsibility earned quickly in the field, traveling to coastal areas to work on projects was great, per diem (for field workers). Benefits were good, matched up to 6% in 401k whether you contributed or not and always put a bonus in the 401k at the end of the year. Great job right out of college.

    Cons

    In the field the traveling became tiresome. Also felt like high school sometimes with all the drama (you live, work, and hang out with all of your coworkers).


  2. "Excellent place to work for single people."

    I worked at Great Lakes Dredge & Dock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You cannot beat the benefits that this company provides and the price is also amazing. Most of the field crews are great to work with.

    Cons

    Very long hours. 14 days on duty. 7 days off but you lose your days off to travel to and from the jobsite. Poor living conditions cramped in housing with multiple people and no choice of accommodations.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as people. Not machines. Allow for crews to stay together when they work well together. Stop the waste. Throwing everything away at the end of every job and buying all new at the next is wasteful to the company and pointless to the environment.
