    I have been working at Ledcor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Office locations, salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    Take the time to read the reviews of this company. Almost all of the 4 and 5 star reviews are a reflection of the salary and benefits packages. Read into the "cons" to get a real sense of the dissatisfaction of employees with leadership, work life balance, and frustration with disorganization. That's what it's really like to work at Ledcor and what you will be faced with on...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the middle/senior leaders who are creating a toxic environment for their teams. Ask team members for feedback on middle management and LISTEN to that feedback and take action on it. At the same time, take a hard look at the executive leadership level and question what and how they really contribute. Stop pointing fingers at people who care about this company. Stop hiring consultants and contractors...

    I worked at Ledcor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some good career challenges within a basic cloud technology road-map, courtesy of smart people who have left the organization.

    Cons

    Some serious unhealthy applied conditions primarily stemming from upper leadership operating under a guise that is actually in contrast to some very good values the rest of the organization seems to value: Poor communication by key upper management, with after the fact communication of asks and a "do as I say, not as I do mentality".

    Advice to Management

    CEO & subsequent Senior Organization management consider a complete IT restructure foremost with upper IT management and watch your people & business flourish way far beyond what you have been led to believe has been accomplished all so well and so far. Employee feedback & exit interviews have solved nothing and only have served to educate upper management how to better defuse the exiting worker before their exit interview...

    Pros

    Great training programs that teach you how to sell. Personal and professional development. Phenomenal pay-you get paid for what you do which means more growth. Lot's to learn.

    Cons

    Since the sales department at Ledcor is quite new, they are still learning to develop the business as they go. No real work/life balance. They pretty much own your life.
