Good company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at David Evans

ProsThey 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.

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

Some good, some bad

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsI 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementGo outside your comfort zone and hire those that can lead, not simply manage design projects.

Great opportunity as an Off-Site employee

Project Analyst (Former Employee)

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

ProsWorking 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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Thankful for the Opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at David Evans as a contractor

ProsDavid 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
