    I worked at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates

    Pros

    Generally better pay compared to similar companies. I liked the people I worked with every day. Generally, there is a good work-life balance as well.

    Cons

    You didn't have much of a say in anything. If they want you to work on THIS project, not THAT one, you're stuck. Also, many have said that advancement opportunities are lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow opportunities for advancement and be more flexible in general.

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can pursue what you want if it makes business sense and you're prepared to work hard. Almost flat corporate structure and easy access to leadership. Great safety culture and when things get tough you're treated like family. If you're looking for a career, not just a job, advancement and compensation will follow.

    Cons

    Personalities can hinder progress if pigeon holed with a manager. Satisfaction and opportunity is too dependent on managers. Merger transition is a bit unsettling. Recent emphasis on credentials over experience is detrimental.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Systems are a means to an end not an end. Identify the demoralizing managers and cull the deadweight before good people leave.

    Not the worst, but definitely not the best consulting firm to work for

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance (with right supervisor). Provides training in variety of subjects. Flexible schedule for salary employees (again, with right supervisor).

    Cons

    Pay is low for the industry. Benefits have declined significantly. Definitely a difference in treatment and expecations for female professionals. Promotions are difficult and favortism is definitely an issue. Management is not inspiring and they don't really understand how to manage a company and motivate employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep smart, high-performing individuals, you may want to give them more opportunities and push them up the ladder faster rather than letting them remain stagnent and then have them quit. The reason there are so many poor managers in the company is because all of the good employees have left.

    The company values safety and pays fairly well

    Pros

    Flexible supervisors, opportunity to travel, variety of projects, high profile clients, safety placed at a premium, acceptable benefits, very talented upper management and senior personnel

    Cons

    Very few cons, overall positive review of the company, unsure of what will happen with merger and how company will grow and evolve. As large as company is it struggles maintaining consistency from office to office.

  10. Great place to gain some experience

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Known to hire new grads without any experience. Great place to gain experience but not so good for upper management. They spend a lot of time training to lose employees after a couple of years that have gained the experience and would like to make more money and see what other opportunities are out there.

    Cons

    Very client driven. Difficult to develop creativity when most of the duties are based on client expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more support to junior staff. Clearly define their roles and responsibility and offer some incentives (pay, benefits, advancement, and bonuses) to junior staff. They are the future of the company and should be valued more.

    Pros

    The variety is very interesting and the team support allows one to safely experience new kinds of project work.

    Cons

    Some projects are remote and require time and distance away from family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the ergonomic improvements and encourage level and open communication between staff.
