    I have been working at Lunda Construction full-time

    Pros

    They work on headline-worthy projects across the Midwest and have an extremely competent staff. Pay is above average for many positions. Industry turn-over as the elder generation retires provides the most legitimate chance for advancement for many positions, if you are patient. Strong benefits. Office culture of being "the best". Management pushing for improvements to safety record. Note: Larry Lunda is no longer...

    Cons

    Awkward management structure between different branches in MN/WI causes power struggles and dysfunction. Old-school management mentality causes long hours and considerable stress to make things work that realistically don't work. On paper, they strive for improved safety but management does not seem to follow through on areas for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    The industry is on the cusp of significant growth and the company must develop a cohesive strategy for how to maintain position and profitability.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Lunda Construction for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You can smoke while you work. Keep busy in busy season, get to work outside.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Low raises. Forced to work overtime when there is not much work.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to employees, give better raises. Don't tell employees you will get a raise based on performance, and then just do a group raise.

    I have been working at Lunda Construction full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, high-quality training, team-oriented staff, successful and publicly held company, friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Average age of employees is around 50 years old, Black River Falls is a small town in rural Wisconsin, and people are almost too busy in our company to adequately help people learn their jobs well, at first.
