    I have been working at Day & Zimmermann full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong company culture. People are great. Managers try to "do the right thing" when it comes to employees. Great place to come in and get a ton of experience.

    Cons

    CEO is an extreme introvert who espouses employee engagement but doesn't lead by example to try and drive it. Not a strong social atmosphere and has a conservative, at times almost stuffy, feel. The company should make an effort to create a fun working environment. Limited opportunities for advancement. Work life balance is at times non existent.

    Pros

    Great folks to work with

    Challenging projects

    Paycheck

    Supervisor pay is very competitive

    Cons

    Mixed messages from upper supervision

    Silliest things Will get you terminated

    Craft wages not very competitive

    Backstabbing Brown nosing, getting thrown under the bus is common

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the craft workers and try and give them more of an incentive than just a paycheck.

    Pros

    - Nice people
    - Stated company values
    - Predictable schedule in corporate location
    - Good work/life balance and integration

    Cons

    - inconsistent messages between leadership and middle managers
    - leaders are aloof and not connected to employees
    - pay is NOT competitive
    - employer does not invest in training and developing employees
    - no clear way to promotion; people get promoted into jobs that are never posted or made public
    - very little diversity in management and leadership (although they claim it to be a core value)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - get out of your offices and start spending time with employees in the organization
    - invest time and money into employees instead of treating them like cogs
    - pay your good people competitively
    - post all jobs and have a competitive promotion process
    - stop hiring and promoting "nice people" and hire and promote the QUALIFIED people

    I worked at Day & Zimmermann full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employer that offers jobs a fairly compensated rates.

    Excellent Corporate support and relatively flat organization.

    Cons

    Business can be cyclical and in 2008 there were a lot of layoffs in engineering.

    There are not a lot of offices across the country so field operations are left to themselves but this is overcome with excellent project managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only reason I am not still with this company is the Security Services division was sold to another company.

    Pros

    This company has many many top notch people from the industry working for them. The managers at various levels of the company are well qualified and willing to teach.

    Cons

    Depending on the position you have there is a lot of travel involved. That's more of a personal problem than a company problem. When traveling you are always compensated fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of bonus stands out to all of D&Z employees as odd for a company this large. If the policy is not to give bonuses it would be nice to have an explanation as to why that is the policy.
