    I have been working at Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to similar companies, fairly laid back work environment. Ability to work from home on occasion is a definite plus.

    Cons

    Top heavy structure, high overhead to cover. Management appears to be afraid of CEO. Pressure on lower end to keep expenses down, while upper end seems to be business as usual. Hired a lot of expensive employees in recent years, now seem to be having a lot of layoffs of the older employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize how bad morale among the people that are actually doing the work. Require leadership to lead or replace them with someone that will. Management could be reduced considerably.

    I worked at Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    BWSC provided a place of work where I could be a valued team player and to make a difference on DoD projects.

    Cons

    Satellite office was too dependent upon a single market and if the market was soft, then valuable staff members were lost due to lack of work.
