    I have been working at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc.

    Pros

    Working at Schweitzer has beeen the best job I've had. There's a real effort company wide to share information. It's not always perfect at the group or division level, but there's even a pretty good effort there as well. I can ask my supervisor questions not just about our group but about SEL in general, and he take the same to give real answers. I've found the work to be challenging, that's the way I like it. This year I was part of the budget process. That gave me some additional insight into how the company works and I liked what I saw. There are some reviews on this site about the Schweitzer family that I don't really get. I've worked with several of them and found them as hard working and smart as the other people I work with. They've also been here a long time, so comments that seem shocked that Ed has family working at the company he started are weird to me. If you're not okay with that, don't take a job here. It's not like it's a secret. (The kids are also in their 30s and 40s so it makes me laugh to see associate level people and interns complain that they've been beaten by promotion by Schweitzers!) I recommend SEL to my friends and family.

    Cons

    I've had a few different managers here. Some have been better than others and sometimes it takes a while for the higher ups to move bad managers out. That does seem to be changing over time though. There are field offices all over the country but not all jobs can work from all offices. I understand why but do wish my role could move around more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Friday Luch open about information. More training for managers and willingness to get bad ones out. Maybe more mobility to field offices?
