    I have been working at Baker Engineering and Risk Consultants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable company, good benefits. Growing company but it is a very painful process.

    Cons

    people seem unhappy in thier jobs. A lot of the managers have been here for 10+ years and not really sure what they do. Work life balance is not what they sell you in the interview, neither is the bonuses at the end of the year. A lot of type A personalities that clash. Going through major growing pains, a lot of the management is afraid of change and not accepting to making the changes needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing things to help the moral of the company. Your people are your greatest asset.

    Pros

    The overall culture of the company is nice. The CEO arrives before most employees and his door is always open. Bonus is nice and so are the people. The company is also pretty transparent with it's employees which is great.

    Cons

    If you aren't an engineer, you aren't valued. All admin staff from accounting, clerical, contracting, and HR are just overhead and you feel that. They definitely don't want to pay you overtime if you work it. Also, if you are in one of these admin positions, there is no room to grow or advance. HR is unhelpful. Salary could definitely be better.
