    I have been working at Jones & Carter full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Multiple locations in the Greater Houston area with flexibility for working in an office closest to home. Like similar companies, there are good managers and bad managers. The good news is that over the past few years the good managers started to out weight the bad managers. This along with a younger stock holder base, the company is moving in the right direction. After 30 plus years, the Houston Office will be renovated in 2014 and modernized.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that even though they are working on competitive compensation, it was about 2 to 4 years to late for some. Management decisions are mostly based on the older generation's idea of what an engineering firm should look like with some input from the younger engineers with new families.This is getting better, but still have some room to grow. The younger manager and stock holder base is making huge leaps in the right direction. The health insurance for the employee is free; however, the plus 1 and family coverage is higher than average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the loyal employees that have stayed with the company through good times and the bad. Always look to stay competitive in both the compensation and overall office moral and appeal.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Jones & Carter in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from a former co-worker and decided to submit my resume. I was brought in the office for an initial interview with my future manager and a few corporate members. After the initial interview, a second interview was held with a future co-worker and a different office location manager.
