    I have been working at BKF Engineers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A combination of a casual and busy workplace. Competitive compensation, great benefits, good perks. Training ranges from lunch and learn to attending CAD Masters classes. A diverse range of projects, from private land development, to public infrastructure works. Very competent management and upper-level engineers. The company has an impressive and detailed strategic plan for the future.

    Cons

    Work hours can be long, but can be extremely flexible depending on the Project Manager. It would be nice to have more time off, even if it was unpaid, but welcome to corporate America. There are currently 20-25 Project Managers and 10-12 Associates. For this reason, I see it being difficult to advance past Project Manager in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider offering more time off, even unpaid. Consider offering 4-day work weeks, 10 hours a day.
