      I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Ledcor is a family oriented company with a focus on getting team members home at the end of every shift safely. Ledcor senior leadership team walks the talk. Ledcor also supports and gives back to the communities where employees live and work, both financially and through volunteerism.

      Cons

      None that aren't present in any similar company at this career level.

      Advice to Management

      Ensure a continued focus on living the values of the company and understanding that cultural sustainability is critical to achieving another 70 years.

      • "Great company"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at Ledcor full-time

          Pros

          Great company to work; a great deal of autonomy and respect when trust is earned through proven performance and competency.

          Cons

          Hands-on supervision of projects. Not the company to work for if you expect to have a staff of people do it for you.

          I worked at Ledcor for more than a year

          Pros

          People are very good to work with and open to extra curricular team building activities. If ever in doubt they are willing to help with a second opinion.

          Cons

          Expectations are high and work flow needs to remain consistent, or subject review by upper management. I've found some people that are not so easy to work with, but casual run-in's and collaboration bring them to the table.

          Advice to Management

          Thanks for everything.
