Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Ledcor full-time

Pros

Friendly and sincere people truly interested in helping out. Company sponsored events. Good facility in Edmonton with cafeteria and recreation space.

Cons

There is an unrealistic amount of change occurring at a pace that continues to result in poor quality decisions and plans. Unclear why all of these changes are occurring and who is responsible to... make them happen. HR is a revolving door with lots of good talent exiting. Technology is being hailed as something that will fix a lot of problems, yet it seems everyone is just going along with the story. Poor leadership in some key areas where accountability is never addressed. Incredibly talented and dedicated people have been slighted and excluded. It happens far too often. HR is not involved enough to know the difference, or worse, too weak to challenge.

Advice to Management

There are some poor quality leaders and HR generalists that are not looking out for the best interests of the company. Saying people matter is one thing, acting like they matter is another thing.... Invest into a modern HR organization and modern HR leaders. Traditional practices and processes are extremely outdated including doing performance reviews. HR needs to build trust in the employee base that the are not just there to be a funnel to collect info and report back to executives. It is disheartening to see such a strange and sometimes unexplained progression ladder. It affects moral for some...typically the ones that actually care about what they are doing. The sign on the way in says “Ledcor Cares”.
