Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COOctober 6, 2017
This is a large company with great benefits. However they have a tendency to mass hire for large jobs and mass lay off when the job is completed. Having a family puts you at a disadvantage here as you are constantly in competition if you want to keep your job.

Great place to work
SUPERINTENDENT (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 5, 2017
Ludvik is a serious competitor in industrial electrical construction in the state of Arizona. They are well managed and profitable with an ever increasing work load. Employees are allowed to flourish and thrive as well as challenged for advancement.
Pros
Excellent work environment which fosters employee excellence.
Cons
Arizona has typically low wage rates compared to other areas, Ludvik is competitive within that market and does what they can to retain quality employees.

productive and hands on learning situations
Electrician (Former Employee) –  Reservation wide,AZJuly 28, 2017
A typical work day would be very long hours of standing, sitting, kneeling, crouching, bending, lifting, pulling, pushing and crawling, Work environment included rain, snow, dust, wind, small spaces, etc. Hardest part of the job is working in the heat while being fully geared up with safety regulated gloves, boots and work helmet, also with tools on hand in tool belt. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning various new techniques in the construction field and learning the various tools to get the job done.
Pros
hour lunch, good days, great benefits, pay wage.
Cons
bad days, weather changes, not enough materials, shipping problems.

Electrical Job
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COMarch 21, 2017
Typical electrical job, there is only as much work as your employer can find. If you like to work with your hands and be busy most of the day this is a great job.

Q/A Q/C electrical (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COFebruary 8, 2017
The hardest part of the job was an assignment out of town for 2 1/2 years.
The most enjoyable part of the job was mentoring the apprentices and journey men.

3rd yr apprentice (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, CONovember 9, 2015
terrible work culture, incompetent management. willful breaking of apprenticeship to juorneyman ratios. they dont care if your kid is sick, you must come to work. they dont care about experience levels, you must get it done. they dont care about safety, it must get done. from what i saw when i left, what ever made them great has been lost, you are looking at a gigantic future law suit. stay away.

A stepping stone
Project Coordinator/Assistant Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, COMarch 11, 2014
Ludvik isn't a bad place to work, but not a great one either. The management is very old school and rigid, but also very knowledgeable. I worked as a member of upper management for this company for two years. They created a decent corporate culture and had good benefits. Some of the supervisors are excellent to work for, some are a little more difficult but none of them I would say made life terrible. As far as opportunity, work freedom and general culture I would say the company is good.

However, salaried employees end up with a raw deal. Ludvik requires salaried employees to work 50 hrs a week, no OT compensation and their pay is marginal at best, also prepare yourself to deal with your superiors taking credit for the hard work you put in. I eventually left because I realized my qualifications could get me a better paying job with less hours than what they offered. Ultimately the experience was good and the lessons learned were invaluable. A good place to get a start, but if you want to make it big in the electrical contracting business then you should probably only use them as a training exercise and not a long term employer.
Pros
Culture and benefits
Cons
Pay, hours and recognition
