    The communication between some of the management and accounting is atrocious. Use of time-sheets is laughably bad also.

    I have been working at Louis Berger as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    There will almost always be work to be had. There is more consistent work with this company than with other if you are involved in CRM. They also have great staff in certain levels. The people who work for the company are great people and a nice ethic that creates a strong community feeling.

    Cons

    Pay raise is abysmal as is beginning pay, however offset by amount of work given. The time-sheets are not the wost but more tedious than anything. Some of the ways that employees are treated by upper management feels belittling rather than as part of a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many times I saw officers needing assistance from upper management for issues and the best of upper management would be considerate and understanding while trying to resolve the issue. The problem was that only a select very few were that nice. All employees have value and must be treated as equals in terms of "if there's an issue well will solve it promptly". Also issues with accounting must be resolved much faster.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Louis Berger in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was just a 10 minute phone conversation. Did not exactly ask any specific questions to my past work history. Easy conversation. Seemed to just want anybody who could do the job. Just did not seem to care to much about the applicant as long as you signed their agreement.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview was Friday. They wanted me 6 hours away from my home by Monday and then to be on the job until Spring 2015.   Answer Question
