    I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Take home pay meets industry standards, although some say it takes the bonus to augment base pay to achieve this standard. Long-term compounded growth of my ESOP account has eclipsed the value of my own 401K savings multi-fold. Retirement will be no problem. For me this has been the greatest benefit. Frankly I don't know how some of my peers working for other engineering firms are going to maintain their standard of living in retirement.

    Cons

    There are certainly some bad managers and it seems the worst are those that have not worked for the company as long as those they manage. Not unlike what I read about other companies. The worst managers are those who became "instant managers" and lack the technical knowledge and experience to actually do the work. Just act as professional butt kickers. This may not be the case across the board, since the company is fairly large, it really depends on the particular group or discipline you are assigned too. Some practices have a reputation to be much more harsh than others, so in essence there is some luck in the draw as under whom you may work. As a rule, Pros outweigh the Cons. Also realize that being employed here is your foot-in-the-door to be proactive in improving via networking with other groups in the company. Many who were dissatisfied with a particular manager where able to engineer their way to better work environments within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My own manager has little idea and seems to care little about the projects I am working on. I am responsible for beating the bushes for my own work assignments. My annual review is a joke and is a tool to build an artificial record of deficiencies so that employees have little to stand on should they become terminated. Verbally I am told I am doing a good job but in writing on the annual review the negatives are purposely emphasized and artificially over-amplified. Which I assume is a self-serving risk management strategy. I can't understand why some managers verbally berate the employees with negative feedback when it serves no purpose other than to cause unnecessary stress. More emphasis is needed to inspire employees as part of the review process.
