Enthusiastic Company with Excellent Advancement Opportunities
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – October 27, 2016
I was hired on as an Administrative Assistant and was promoted to Project Coordinator within a few months. I am receiving professional training and the project managers are extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions I may have. Upper management is friendly and have molded a great culture for this company. I am so proud to be working for an company that truly cares about their people and the environment.

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.
Project Coordinator/Assistant Project Manager (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – March 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.

Overall, just NOT a good working environment. Management intimidates employees and demonstrates a clear lack of ability and knowledge of good interpersonal and management skills to the point of gross incompetence. Training and development efforts at the time I was there were virtually non-existent and those who did do training were, again, grossly incompetent.
Worst of all, employees were told to lie on their timecards. Employees were told they needed to be at work by 7 a.m. and work ended at 5 p.m. - a total of 10 hours of work with a 1 hour lunch, so people were getting paid for 8 hours of work when they were actually working 9 or more, a grossly unfair business practice if I've ever seen one.
DO NOT work for this company if you can avoid it. It truly is a dysfunctional and hostile work environment.
I wasn't talking about their electrical experience, more so their interpersonal communication and management skills. And, since you have no idea how long ago it was I was there, you obviously are uniformed, so your comments are moot.
Want to know more about Ludvik Electric Co.? Just ask.
The management treats the project management staff like their slaves and whipping boys. I got sick and need a couple of days off and was told be at work or your job is gone when you get back. It's as if they delight in running people off.. work anyplace but Ludvik..

Management was lazy and incompetent. No real on boarding or new hire training to speak of. The former employee left a mess and I was expected to clean it up without any direction or help. There is a lot of favoritism and narcissism as the CEO has all of his family and friends working for him even if they are incompetent. Don't waste your time working at a company like this.
Apprentice (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – November 10, 2012
A typical day at work would start out with showing up 15 minutes early and going to our meeting spot. We would stretch and discuss any safety issues for the day. We would then, divide into our groups and go to our tasks. Could be ranging from bending pipe,pulling wire, digging a ditch, etc. I learned quite a bit:how to pull wire, bend between 1/2 inch inch and 2 1/2 inch pipe, set up a tear down all machines for pulling wire, operate fork lift and scissor lift, using all basic hand tools and power tools including: crimping, wire cutter, drill, hammer drill, etc. The hardest part of the job was working with so many people in such a small area. The best part of it was having a fun day with a bunch of buddies while getting work done and getting paid.

Wored a project with this company a few years ago, they are a good company. their benefit program is second to none. They make an effort to keep the employees working, they ask for a days work if you give it to them you will stay busy.
Not a good company to work for if you are looking for long term employment.
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – January 17, 2013
I thought I had found a good job worth hanging onto. Was offered a chance to go back to school this next yr to further my education. Which I thought was awesome. So in turn to show my dedication to the job I order more tool through them. The day they laid me off I got my last check. Well they were kind enough to take the remainder of what I owed for my tools out of my last check. So for Christmas and my oldest son's bday I had a whole 88 dollars to work with. Thanks Ludvik!
