    Pros

    The overall firm culture of Coffman Engineers is fun and supportive. Management places great emphasis on maintaining an upbeat yet professional office environment. This is perpetuated by numerous wellness and social activities both in individual offices and the firm as a whole. It is so refreshing to work at a firm that focuses on the employees, not just the bottom line.

    Cons

    Because the firm has seven offices, it can sometimes be a challenge to connect with all the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting the strong and supportive Coffman Engineers culture. As the firm continues to grow, it is important to maintain the focus on the employees and their well being.

    I have been working at Coffman Engineers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone including the CEO and Principals are down to earth and helpful. Their willingness to help better my career and solving any problems I have had means a lot to me. Healthy breakfast is provided here. Plus, I love the downtown location.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything in particular.

    I worked at Coffman Engineers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very professional environment, many exceptional employees. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Better projects at other firms I've worked for. Coffman has a ho-hum, predictable reputation. Not edgy or progressive. Their recruiting campaign says that they "allow employees to grow into their career". Absolute bull. The management has no idea how to even keep an intern productively busy, let alone encourage the growth of an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The message from the top seemed to be right, but many of the employees weren't buying it. Are engineers always right? Maybe not always.

    I have been working at Coffman Engineers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, management cares about employees, flexibility, great co-workers, interesting work with the chance to work in other Coffman offices, good reputation, been in business over 35 years and going strong, charitable giving is part of the culture.

    Cons

    Need to hire more people because we have been busy for awhile and we keep getting more work, sometimes there are hiccups when coordinating work between offices, the commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Hire more people!

    I have been working at Coffman Engineers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance, good benefits, feel like management listens (not that they always agree, but...), lots of smart people (awesome IT guy), breakfast provided.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be really busy. Overtime is paid, but it would be nice to have longer breaks of moderately busy days.

    I have been working at Coffman Engineers

    Pros

    The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Although work is dealt with seriously and professionally, there are times open to have fun.

    Cons

    The office can have a lot of work at times as we take on many clients. This makes the work day a bit hectic on busy days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring more staff might be a consideration to lessen the work load of current employees and to allow for less stress.
