    I worked at Binkley Barfield full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Binkley Barfield as an intern for 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.

    I have been working at Binkley Barfield

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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?

    I have been working at Binkley Barfield full-time

    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!
