I worked at Antea Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of locations with the opportunity to work on projects throughout the world

Cons

Upper management seems more worried about position titles and redesigning organization charts than helping clients or seeking out new opportunities. As a result, many offices are hanging on with a few legacy projects with nothing new coming in. Finally, the company tends to hire "lost souls" who are happy to have a job at low pay as opposed to seeking out the best talent. As a result, there tends to be a general lack of ambition in many offices which promotes an environment of complacency.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Begin focusing on the client as opposed to your own goals within the organization. Once ckients see you taking time to actually listen to them and trying help them, you will likely be rewarded with more complex and interesting projects which will in turn help attract better talent (if you are willing to pay for them). If this happens you may no longer have to chase low end UST portfolios.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are very nice and pleasant to be around in an office setting. Benefits are descent, and management is understanding and flexible regarding sick and vacation time. Employee safety and ergonomics are taken seriously and addressed in a timely manner.

    Cons

    Pay raises are not given if you are performing your job well at your expected level, they are only awarded if you are performing above your pay grade and taking on more tasks than in your given job description. Management does not always mention bring an employees' errors to their attention immediately, and in some cases they will wait to bring it up during performance reviews. Also, the company does not adjust employee incomes to meet cost of living, so CA employees are actually making less money than in other states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a direct report is making an error that they are unaware of, you should address with the employee immediately instead of filing it away until it's time for their review or telling higher management while the employee is still unaware of the mistake.

    I have been working at Antea Group

    Pros

    I have just started my graduate program so Antea has been flexible with my schedule and I have been able to leave the office at irregular hours.

    Cons

    I have not been challenged in my current role. I have expressed my interested in taking on more responsibilities or assisting other groups, but my requests have not been recognized. I have felt this way for the past 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have realistic goals in mind and be open to feedback from subordinates.
