Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 February 2014
Worked closely with area manage including contract reviews, research of new projects, variance review and prepared draft submission letters for design and construction team. Responsible for overseeing drawings, submittal of RFIs to owners, architects and consultants. Co-workers were extremely helpful and friendly.
I was member of the Pursuit Team (design-build-finance) for bid of E-Division Project and winner of SMH Project bid in 2011.
Good Start in your career. More for a seasoned (5-10 plus) professional.
ESTIMATOR (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 18 October 2017
Pros: If learning is your primary focus, EllisDon is where you want to be. The learning is every hour of every day. Overall, EllisDon BC branch was an very good place to work. The people and projects worked on and pursued were second to none. It's a collaborative and flatarchy corporate structure where everyone can talk to anyone if it's conducive to procuring a project.
Cons: The pay. It's low to start and can extend for a while even if you have proved yourself and experienced moderate success. The management in place keeps wages low in order to finance project pursuits and keep their bonuses high. I can't completely blame them for doing that since I can't say 100% that I wouldn't do the same thing. However, considering the point in time I'm at in life and the production I gave, pay did not match performance. I'm afraid it's a recurring theme there.
