    Excellent Company with great values and culture. In order to move up in the company, it appears you must leave first.

    Pros

    Good CEO, Excellent 401K Plan. The culture here is great and use of technology to maximize work between offices/regions is a plus.

    Cons

    Lack of mentorship
    Unfair compensation for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more promotions and better increase in salary to retain young talent. Also minimize overworking employees which causes burnout. Appears to be too much management at all levels.

    Massachusetts office is a hostile place to work

    I have been working at Brown and Caldwell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good flexibility with time off for dr. appts, etc.

    Cons

    Hostile environment. One person is the leader of the pack and everyone else puts blinders on. During political elections some employees feel entitled to voice their candidate choice loudly as an act of intimidation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exit interviews should include asking WHO is a problem and WHAT are the negative results are from these people.
