    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice work environment with very helpful co-workers. People are always willing to help with whatever task you inquire about.

    Cons

    I am only with the company for a couple months so I cannot see too much that would counted as a con. I would say from what I read in the other reviews the cons seem to be accurate.

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions

    Pros

    Pay was good and worked in a remote location and there was no micromanagement.

    Cons

    You have a large workload and will work more than your 40 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just look at numbers when trying to distribute work load. There is more than numbers to tell how busy a person can be.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been incredibly lucky to work here. I have been given the most awesome development opportunities! Contech really does care and invest in my professional development and I can't say how much I appreciate this. My schedule is also flexible when there are personal items I need to take care of. My department and supervisor are fantastic - I really appreciate my relationship both personally and professionally with all of them. All in all I love working for this company and look forward to seeing what the future holds here.

    Cons

    I don't have any complaints about Contech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the highest level of Management is pretty disconnected with the employees. It would go far if they would get more involved or at least aware of what happens lower in the organization.

    Pros

    Talented people, flexible work schedules, plenty of development opportunity, excellent benefit programs and competitive pay in a safe culture with dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Lean times and recession tightened the belt for the company over the last 5 years creating heavier work loads for employees and anxiety regarding the company's financial security. As a result morale is still suffering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have gotten the company through the most difficult times but keep weathering what's left of the storm! Employees want to hear regularly from Management so even if the news is bad - deliver it.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constant opportunity to learn. Flexibility in managing day to day responsibilities. Our engineers are some of the smartest people I have worked with. Our products are used worldwide and help solve many infrastructure and ecological challenges. People I work with like what they are working on - they are dedicated professionals. For most part benefits and pay are competitive.

    Cons

    Little constrained by resources. Sometimes don't get enough information about how we are doing as a company. Because of market a lot of change has been necessary and sometimes a bit much to absorb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money wisely and where necessary

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training and development opportunities as well as good pay and/benefits. I have a great work life balance. I also like the fact the company is environmentally focused not only with its products believes in getting involved and giving back to the local community with programs such as Earth Day volunteer activities. Employees are paid for their time while working on service projects of their choice.

    Cons

    Matrixed organization can create challenges such as limited communication. This can problems and bottlenecks when the right people aren't involved in a project or a decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more transparency and consistent communication across the organization. You seem to be doing some good things but many employees have no clue.

    Former Intern - Intern in Linthicum, MD

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Wide range of areas of work: (Wastewater and stormwater treatment, retaining walls, piping, infiltration systems, precast bridges) The travel is not bad and most projects are located within a 25 mile radius.

    Cons

    Low pay. Lots of free engineering and takeoffs are done for clients; however, the company is not compensated for this, unless a Contech product is incorporated into the design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward Employees more
