Good place
Good place to work in general if you're able to handle the stress of high pace construction. Pay was good, yearly bonuses for salary staff were modest but reasonable.

Experience at EllisDon
During my team at EllisDon, it was honestly the best 4 years. Coming in as a co-op than coming back as contract in which transitioned to full time.

I've learned so much during my time there starting from learning the basics such as Active Directory, using the ticketing system. From there i've learning more on my path as to dealing with hardware issues (Windows machines & Macs), making documentation for the user experience, work with multiple vendors on getting hardware items for the company, being cost efficient during the whole process, working on asset management, change management and much more i can go on about.


A typical day for me during my time was me coming into the office, settling in and getting ready to help the users with our full 100% support. When working with a construction company, they usually get a lot of new projects in which builds up to being busy. Within Ellisdon, that was a good thing because that means vendors rely on us on what needs to get completed.


The hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with the day to day tasks as to a point it would get so busy we would feel that we would have to multi-task on alot of projects to help support the business. Whenever EllisDon hires more people, that means more of a workload for user to make sure we provide the best user experience.


The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my fellow teammates/colleagues as we all try to help each other out as much as possible. Also, we always learn from one another so that we can use that knowledge for future projects etc. Along with that, i enjoyed

Excellent placement for a summer student.
I really enjoyed spending the summer as a Project- Coordinator for EllisDon. The company gives a great deal of responsibility in their summer students and ensures you make the most of your placement.

A lot of experience
Very busy, and very engaging, but slow to grow within and poor culture and management. Poor work-life balance - they expect you to love the company more than your family.

Difficult culture
They were competitive, closed and many political games were played. Internally focused and no information sharing. Expected you to read management mind instead of clearly stating expectations
