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

    Pros

    SA Healy Company was fantastic, fun and made you feel wanted before the Lane Merger. Italian expats, are fun and teach you a different style of business. They are a very inspiring group.

    Cons

    Once Lane took charge, your past contributions and awards, had no merit Lane is top heavy in management, and exhibits poor communication. They never kept their promise on job security or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce Management size to save money. Keep your written promises.

    I worked at Lane Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros I found working at Lane are the few good people I met.

    Cons

    No support if there is a problem with your supervisor. To many chiefs not enough Indians. Not necessary to have middle management. Trim the fat! Employ supervisors that know how to treat people with respect. The supervisor I worked under in the corporate office had terrible management skills if any. Treated her team like garbage, had her favorites and treated everyone else like crap in her department. She lied constantly and got away with it. Everyday I came to work with a knot in my stomach. None of the supervisors or managers have any of the values or integrity the company brags about. There is no room for advancement at all. The pay isn't that great either. I needed a job to pay my bills that is the only reason I stayed, the day I stopped working there it was like a weight off my shoulders.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat! Investigate middle management! Eliminate Second level managers and give people the money they deserve. Screen supervisors and make sure they're are qualified to run a department and don't lack all the values Lane is supposed to stand by.

    I worked at Lane Construction (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1 week of vacation after 90 days.

    Cons

    No sick / personal time if you are hourly employee. If you have an appointment or a sick child and need to take time off you will not get paid.
    PTO accrues very slowly after 90 days.
    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
    How many office managers and assistants does one company need.

    Advice to Management

    Review your org. chart, give hourly associates sick/personal time.

    I worked at Lane Construction full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has a decent pay scale, the relaxed dress code is a positive.

    Cons

    Upper management is corrupt, the company expresses values including: integrity, care for people and open and honest, however these are not values that are practiced at the management levels. The top management in ME, VA, MA and NC should be investigated. They in no way follow the values that are posted in each office. Loyalty is not valued nor is experience and knowledge. The company does not have any work life balance, and do not properly title or compensate their employees for the work they are performing.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the value of employees based on performance rather than title or personal relationships. Employees who perform well and request advancement should be encouraged and assisted. Employees should not be promoted or stay employed based solely on personal relationships.

    I have been working at Lane Construction full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Relaxed environment in terms of dress code and office personnel. Food every once and awhile. Big concern for safety.

    Cons

    Hard to move up the ladder without vast experience here. Not very family like what they claim to be about.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunity for success. I would say create a more competitive environment. Get out and know the company you run.
