Good company, not enough innovation

Admin (Former Employee)
Columbia, MD

I worked at Allen & Shariff full-time for more than 10 years

ProsEducated people, stability, diversity, great vacation policy, the people. Overall a good company to work for, sometimes growing pains are a struggle we have to deal with

ConsConsistency, accountability, commodity services. It is hard to differentiate our services from the competition. Diverse, but just as unstable as many AEC firms. They rely on the economy to grow.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in someone who has successfully ran a large AEC firm. Buy talent, before the competition does. Innovate!

A company that has no future and does not care for it s people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Allen & Shariff full-time

Prosthe workers get the job done despite corporate management

Consthe benefits are a scam. When you file they fight you and deny the benefits . One worker died and Allen and Shariff fought to deny the benefits. Another was fired when he was hurt on the job. Corporate spends more time patting themselves on the back then getting new work. The company is one big lie.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide the benefits you say you are going to and get some experience in management. A n Admirals assistant without construction or engineering experience is worthless as the overall operations manager.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
