Equipment Accountant (Former Employee) – Black River Falls, WI – December 19, 2018
Working conditions are good, but there are no performance reviews ever and no staff meetings. Employees are in the dark about how things are going and are thus vulnerable to spontaneous decisions made by management.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Black River Falls, WI – December 9, 2017
There is lots of work available with long hours and great pay. I was not there long enough to receive benefits but they do off great benefits and dental. This is a union company so you will have to pay union dues. There is lots of traveling involved with this company, most times it’s for weeks on end.

Laborer (Former Employee) – Coates, MN – April 18, 2017
My three years working at Lunda was a good different experience. I have done laborer type before but never with bridges. I definitely got over my fear of heights fast. I learned to work an get the job done under pressure an meet deadlines.
Senior Project Accountant (Current Employee) – Black River Falls, WI – July 28, 2015
Lunda Construction Company is an older (in generation and in longevity) company, but is well respected in the construction industry. They are very successful at bridge construction and giving back to their community in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Management knows what they are doing, but doesn't over work anyone who doesn't volunteer to do so. There is very little corporate involvement, so it is a "long-leash" environment in that respect, too.
1 hour lunch, easy-going culture, upper management leadership, relaxed on time off
Outdated, "Old-School", low amounts of current technology
A great place to work like working with family. Never boring always something different and new.
Journeyman welder/ fabricator. (Former Employee) – Black River Falls, WI – December 28, 2013
A typical day would be show up get your job and prints set up and cut and grind parts tack weld them together check measurements and make sure everything is correct then weld clean and paint. Co- workers are friendly and helpful we all work together knowing we all have the same goal. getting job done and giving our company a good name in the industry.
I worked for Lunda for several years and watched it change from a locally owned company to a large multinational conglomerate. During the transition period I watched many of my co-workers decide to switch or change careers because of the management shake up. There was a shift of core values that was very noticeable after the company was bought out a few years ago. Hard work was always praised but now it is becoming at the expense of personal health and safety. Promotions are given to the younger and less experienced personnel who are willing to let the company come before themselves or their families. Because of this I decided to leave the company.
My co-workers for the most part are good guys not people I would invite over to my home after work but they are generally tolerable. Working together constantly in close spaces requires good communication. Almost all workers in this company have extensive communication training.
The best part about working for Lunda was the feeling of accomplishment after a job was finished. There are so many projects I had been on in those years I worked with them, building infrastructure really ties you to your State and community.
Long Hours, Lots of Overtime, Safety is a minor concern
