    I worked at Ledcor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work, good benefits ,good people. Overall enjoyable experience. There are established programs for career development, safety practices. There is also good variety in project scope and you get the chance to work with a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    Long hours. Sometime the corporate culture has favortism with certain people. It's not publicly listed which makes its operation and disclosure semi opaque

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that those promoted have diversity in geographical location. This would remove the sentiment of geographically localized power and career opportunities.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ledcor

    Pros

    The medical and dental benefits are good.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor pay, no weekends, stat holidays off. The office staff get a 2 week paid time off at Christmas while the front line staff are forced to work Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years. More interested is covering the companies bottom line than the well being of the workers it seems.
