    I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time (more than a year)


    End of the year bonus, ESOP


    Lack of communication to field employees, low hourly wages, low raises at the end of the year, and the evaluation process in my department is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with employees on expectations. Pay your people better and follow through on promises made through the interview process.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty nice. They paid for my travel to the office. Sat down in a room with four people from the office and they just discussed my resume. No crazy or unexpected questions. Everything was very straightforward and I just told them about myself.
