    I have been working at David Evans

    Pros

    They care about environmental sustainability, treat employees well, and practice transparency from the top down. HR and high-level management truly care about people, and it shows. This company has a large number of highly competent employees who are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    They are in between small company mentality and large company mentality and each has its pros and cons.

    I worked at David Evans full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I had a lot of opportunities to grow with the company. They allow for a lot of freedom. They provide transit passes, have flexible work schedules with every other Friday off.

    Cons

    They tend to hire/promote engineers, not leaders. A lot of independent actors, and not always a lot of collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go outside your comfort zone and hire those that can lead, not simply manage design projects.

    I worked at David Evans full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working off-site for DEA was so much better than the situation most of the contract employees worked with. They treat their staff just like the would the internal DEA staff. They are not a recruiting agency, so their partnership with BPA is a unique arrangement and they are dedicated to making it the best for everyone involved

    Cons

    I didn't work at their internal offices, so I can't say anything on working for them.

    I have been working at David Evans as a contractor

    Pros

    David Evan's has provided career opportunities that I would not otherwise have had. They have also represented my interests well, when negotiating pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There does seem to be a lack of communication, but I don't believe it is any worse than other companies I have worked for.
