Not all it seems

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Upper management in Halifax following the old school method of being a boss and not a leader. They were hard to work with and didn't provide much feedback.

Quebec staff treated preferential

This is not a company that embodies the same principles and culture of Canada outside Quebec. Quebecers are put in the rest of Canada as they only trust people from the head office.

Amazing company

One of the best i work for in construction industry. it's a big entity but it's progressive and the culture is definitely a must. and its leader Pierre Pomerleau is a great person to work for, down to earth and accessible.

Pros

Cons

it's a big company trying to adapt to market and current growth

Management and culture not good. No atmosphere in the office. Have to be French to progress. Good in the East, not in the West. Lots of ambitious employees are leaving.

Pros

French to progress. Poor Management.

Ridiculous work load

I thought that being on a major infrastructure project was going to be fun during the pandemic despite the fact that I had a 40k setback in my annual pay. I gave them my confidence and it was my first time working for a major contractor but the Management decided to add people on top of the Org Chart that were more Boomer then the next oddball and they decided they were now your new Acendants despite the fact they had no clue about your expertise and no relation to your discipline whatsoever. Expenses paid for out of town trips after a month and free accusations of whatever they heard in the grapevines and free harassment and gaslight culture meaning they have no major projects experience but sell that they do. Worst experience in my life. I will make sure they get out of my next projects. In fact they have many safety incidents on their sites. Would not recommend but they give out brown envelopes to get them civil projects if you enjoy Civil arrogant ignorant culture

Poor management

The opportunity to work for Pomerleau seemed to be too good to be true, and that’s exactly what it turned out to be. Safety culture was poor, although on the surface seemed to be top notch. Management did not have enough experience to run the projects that they were running. Pay was okay… although for the hours that were “actually” needed to work, they were not. Overall quite disappointing. If you don’t speak French, good luck.

Les valeurs de l'entreprise ne sont pas appliquées

système de rencontre annuelle pour négocier votre salaire. On ne sais rien sur notre rémunération future. Il faut se vendre et performé pour espérer avoir un 2% d'augmentation salariale. Cependant très bon avantage sociaux comme assurance santé et dentaires complète à faible coût. J'y es travaillé pendant 6 ans mais je ne peux le recommandé. Les valeurs de l'entreprise sont très nobles mais la haute direction ne les appliquent pas eux mêmes.

Pros

assurances et REER jusqu'à 5% de votre salaire

Cons

on vous écoute mais ne vous entends pas. Mauvaise personne au mauvais poste.

Hmm not at ALL the rah rah rah is as promised

Pomerleau may be wonderful in other regions and that may well be the case. However, the company “culture” that seemed so desirable in the courting stage, was bit at all reality. Training is non existent; management is archaic and safety is based in 1970s values of be seen and not heard. Wry disheartening indeed.

Pros

Vacation allotment

Cons

Consistency amongst departments (there is none); safety culture;

Good company to work for. I like the people that work for Pomerleau.

Pomerleau is a big company, I liked working for the company Pomerleau. There is no heavy-civil crew to work with though, pitty. And there used to be a recieving yard/shop that I did work in. Now there is nowhere to store materials/tools. Strange.

Pros

Hand wash stations

Cons

No heavy civil crew

Great company

Very good company, some management have a very stressful way of managing their teams, however most are fine. Good possibility of advancement if you are willing to put your career above anything else.

Terrible company

Company is awful, management is biased. HR is even more biased, HR doesnt keep anything confidential. Managers bully employees, make them feel worthless. People who deserve a promotion get passed over. I wouldn't tell my worst enemy to work there. They barely pay minimum wage.

Pros

none

Cons

WAY to many to list

Project Admin Assistant

Job titles do not match job description, they like overworked and underpaid employees. Some staff given privileges while others are not. Long hours of work expected. Low salaries across the board.
