Great people, bad management.
Estimator (Former Employee), TorontoMarch 5, 2014
90 percent of the people working here are great but the management is poor. Lots of broken promises. You will not feel secure working here.

Everything goes slow
Minion (Former Employee), CanadaMarch 1, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: incompetent (but nice) management
Great company but too much time is spent on ridiculous tasks that have nothing to do with constructing the project.

If you have come from a smaller firm to join EllisDon be prepared to get extremely frustrated with how long it takes to get normal things in place to actually start building.

You will lose two or three months at the beginning of a project – more... only to work like a dog the last three months making up time that was wasted at the beginning

It's hard to believe they make money. They have so many employees who really don't do anything but spend the day pretending they are necessary. Nice people though. – less

A place where you get stabed in the back
APM (Current Employee), EdmontonDecember 4, 2013
Pros: good benifits, open bar and great xmas parties, beer sometimes in the fridge for after work
Cons: backstabing by management and some other salary workers.
Management needs some work to have better down communication and working with all employees. The treatment is poor, communication is lacking, the mentoring programing is non-existing. Promises made are not kept.

Backstabbing and poorly managed
M&E coordinator (Former Employee), EdmontonJune 6, 2013
Pros: open bar at functions
Cons: open bar at functions
Worked for the Edmonton branch as an M&E coordinator . Found that they were not upfront , but rather dubious with their internal dealings . You were always concerned that you were on the block when there was absolutely no reason . During my tenure there I saw a large turnover in all disciplines including 4 strictly in the M&E dpt.

Also keep in mind – more... that when you are hired salary it's for 37.5 hrs .... I found that I was working a minimum of 50 hrs a week. – less
