  1.  

    A mixed bag. A company in flux seeking balance

    Pros

    A little more progressive than most stodgy engineering firms

    Cons

    Mandatory 45 hour work week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Economic downturn is not an excuse for not thinking forward.

    I worked at Coler & Colantonio, Inc.

    Pros

    Willing to pay over-time (time and a half).

    Cons

    Hired as contract employee. Which would mean there is no direction given to me for completing work. Also means no supplies or equipment is provided. Neither of these stipulations were met. What they are doing here is illegal, and just a way to get around paying any benefits or pay into un-employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees and they will respect you.

    Pros

    Great professional experience, a lot of intelligent management staff.

    Cons

    45+++ hrs a week, low pay, no excitement, no recognition/reward for hard work. Hardly any time to enjoy personal life! High employee turnover and the list goes on.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn new things. Great company to start employment. Company invests in technology, so you do not have to do things like in the old days.

    Cons

    Promotion opportunities are limited - it is not a big company. Almost all engineering staff is exempt, so no overtime pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing.
