I worked at PCL Construction as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

good work environment, fair compensation. Overall I had a good experience working for PCL, definitely would recommend to those interested in the construction industry

Cons

had to move around. My position required me to move for a period of time. Definitely would not a draw back for some, but I prefer to stay in one location.

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

    Pros

    Great learning experience, big fat pay cheques, always busy, days go by fast, recommend this company for apprentices as a learning experience.

    Cons

    Long days, back breaking work, very dangerous situations, exposed to all weather conditions, as well as exposed to low IQ's and retarded schedule pushes (but that's not a PCL problem as much as it is a industry problem), no life outside of work - you WILL be working Saturdays, became a CLAC company in Calgary.

    Advice to Management

    not much, just in Alberta stop with the 44 hour work week mandate, I Know it's in the labour law but these working people have families and friends outside of work too, not just in management.

    I worked at PCL Construction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being employee owned is a bonus. Internal Company website is very well done. Year end bonuses with stock options

    Cons

    Civil division: Heavy workload for salary employees. Site management is lean and site office personnel are "expected" to supervise hourly craft. Long list of office requirements are still expected to get done while site supervision is constant. Weekly internal cost management and subcontractor superision is on top of PCL hourly crew micro management. Work hrs are at 65hrs constantly to keep up with paperwork for internal and DOT. Yearly bonuses do not compensate for extended hours.

    Advice to Management

    Superintendents need help managing crews and cost reporting. Too much crew supervision is required of Project Engineers and Field Engineers.
