    Pros

    Challenging work at times Good pay and excellent benefits Coworkers are usually helpful

    Cons

    No training or succession plan Work load fluctuates a lot Very billing driven meaning internal projects are low priority Not innovative Pressure to go to Arlington to Bruce sites. Almost half the company is at site. Employees on overhead tend to be those that can't do billable work

    Advice to Management

    Management has it tough. High billing rates mean getting other clients is difficult. Opg and Bruce power continue to cut cost and expect more. Keep trying to get into other markets.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMEC NSS (Chelmsford, MA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    They used a good cop/ bad cop routine during the group interview portion. That was a real turnoff. One of the interviewers in particular was very focused on making sure I understood that they had strict policies that I'd need to adhere to or be let go, including use of cell phones in personal vehicles. Not very interested in selling me what the work would be like, or how great it was to work there.
