Slow to move in corporate

Civil Engineer III (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

ProsThe regional offices feel like small companies with the support and technical expertise of a corporation

ConsThings definitely move slowly, including requests for promotions and salary reviews. It's a little disheartening to see your efforts apparently go unnoticed.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart taking your staff seriously and reward them accordingly. Be proactive about rewarding underpaid talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
