    I have been working at Sundt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company's upward trajectory, dedicated employee owners, experienced and helpfull peers. Renewed focus on training and development from entry level positions to tenured managers.

    Cons

    Insufficient investment in software/tools upgrades to keep pace with the changing market.
    The Leadership team is effective and accountable but the Who, what, where, how is totally unclear with regard to the Board of Directors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employee owner development and technology. Foster competition between operating groups and reinforce that success is shared and essential for each.

    Pros

    The level of training and mentoring upon starting this job was impressive. These people act like I am a valuable asset to their company and are investing in me. What a novel approach. I believe I have found a home.

    Cons

    Level of pay was not quite what I was use to but the ESOP, benefits and potential bonus should offset the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing by investing in your people. Live your core values by doing the right thing. Integrity will win in the long run.

    Hours can be long but they will be not matter what job you have in this industry.

    Some office management is very curious as to what others are doing. Even people that don't work under them. Can be annoying at times.

    I have been working at Sundt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sundt is 100% employee-owned, this translates to real value for me.
    Sundt works to best serve their customers.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to work together across the various divisions on extra curricular activities outside of day to day project duties.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen the employee-ownership culture even more. Look for help internally. Listen to employee-owners throughout the organization.

    I have been working at Sundt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sundt's culture is very progressive and forward thinking. After working for another construction contractor I was amazed at how Sundt was utilizing technology and trusting employees for creative solutions. Sundt is dedicated to providing best of class service to clients and supports employees that seek the same.

    Cons

    It can take quite a bit of momentum to really spread an idea within the company.
    While as a whole the company is implementing technology, often times differences between job-site specific attitudes can be quite disruptive to applying new technology.

    I have been working at Sundt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company and people work at Sundt. I consider everyone like a large family working here at Sundt. Just really good driven people who go out of their way to do the best job possible. I started when the stock price was $14.72 per share back in 1997. It hit a high a few years ago of $168.00 per share. I've been here now almost 20 years and I have a nice parachute to land with. This is the best company I ever worked for and it being an ESOP is just another great advantage of working here. Highly recommended if you are talented and can bring a good amount of enthusiasm to work everyday.

    Cons

    I really can't say we have any Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep this ship on course and keep the share price rising guys.
