    I have been working at Binkley Barfield full-time

    Pros

    This is a good company to work for. They appreciate their employees and reward hard work and dedication by promoting from within. Strong values and a real family feel from a company that has been around for 40 years. They offer flexible schedules and good benefits.

    Cons

    Is an established name in engineering but still has a slightly small business look and feel. This can be a pro or a con depending on how you see it.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, keep up the good work. Continue to value your employees.

    I have been working at Binkley Barfield full-time

    Pros

    Traditionally run, a few key leaders really have it together and have the ability to take the company to the next level, pretty easy going atmosphere in most groups, there is a possibility for some real change for the better.

    Cons

    Again... traditionally run, old building with decor from the 70's, work can get boring and slow, a few employees in key positions are hard to deal with, there is a significant age gap which affects acceptance levels of new tech, and occasionally there are some really long hours picking up slack.

    I worked at Binkley Barfield full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    While working for the Company, I was continually impressed by the owners commitment to service - in the Houston community, around Texas, and the families represented by their staff. This Company was committed to providing a good salary and benefits for those who worked for them - along with flexible hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes there were growing pains - such as long hours until staff were hired for big projects. The office building is old and sometimes space was a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on fighting the corporate mindset of money first, instead valuing relationships.

    I have been working at Binkley Barfield as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very relaxed work environment, no stress.

    Cons

    No real plan for interns. Interns were assigned to whichever project needed help. Downtime when there weren't any projects to work on.


  6. grossly underpaid

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule free medical insurance

    Cons

    extremely low pay 99% of work is CADD (not engineering) little, if any, opportunity for advancement no vacation in first year 6 year vesting schedule for 401k/IRA

    Advice to Management

    you should pay your employees what they're worth, or at least close to what they're worth. paying your engineers with 5+ years experience less than what new graduates are making is awful and breeds resentment. perhaps instead of hiring engineers, you should be hiring CADD techs?


  7. Great place to work!

    Pros

    Flexible schedules with understanding enviroment that puts consideration into employees having responsibilities other than their career. Free insurance for you and your family. Growing enviroment, if motivated. The company really makes an effort to get you the knowledge needed to excel in your position.

    Cons

    Older building. Maybe it was a hit in the 70's. Parking could be a little bit better. Once again parking!
