    I worked at Sandis full-time

    Pros

    80% of the employees are pleasant to work with, which makes the work environment slightly better
    Fast-paced work environment results in a much greater knowledge of design civil engineering
    Most weeks, unless you had tight deadlines, you could leave by 5/5:30

    Cons

    Management has over-and-above expectations. If you want to work here, expect to be told that you are not doing a good job no matter how hard or long you work. After a certain point at Sandis, your learning stops because they are so over-loaded with projects that nobody has time to help you, which results in making mistakes you didn't know were possible and getting blamed for it. If you took your experience to another company after one year at Sandis, they will pay you at least 25% more and actually respect you and help you further develop your knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maximize on quality, not quantity. All employees are stressed out making deadlines, and some managers are definitely unable to handle the workload. For what you pay employees versus how much you get paid for their services, you should be able to afford either hiring more people to relieve the load, or not accepting every job that comes your way. Sandis is not known for a great final product, and this is because groups are each working on 20+ projects and nobody can create perfect final projects in those conditions.
