Pros

Many of the coworkers do care about the work and the customer. Management tries to host events or gatherings, but mostly only the same 20 people in the corporate office ever show up.

Cons

1. Management / Owners do not care about employees.
2. Your job is your job. There is not career at B&E
3. Benefits are very expensive
4. It is just a job - nothing more

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to treat the people who make your company feel like they are valued. Ask questions of every level and at every project, not just the people who sit in the nice and new Arlington office.

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers, everyone is friendly and nice. Your coworkers are really close, you hang out talk about life and just in general have a great vibe. Management is also pretty great, as they are constantly looking for ways to make employees happy and improve not only the company's image but theirs as well. Of course free snacks and drinks for employees and a great modern office atmosphere. Also, you are a person not a just a number.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for career growth, which is the reason I left, however plenty of opportunities to learn a new skill. Also, pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase PTO time, 2 weeks is simply not enough for those who wish to vacation internationally. Many other companies are now offering 3-4 weeks PTO for employees. Also, would be nice if there were some WFH options available. Other than that, keep up the good work

    Pros

    Pay is above average and the office space is top notch.

    Cons

    Management just doesn't get it. They lack clear focus and some director positions are revolving doors--one month you are reporting to one person, the next someone else. They are undergoing significant growing pains that may just tear them apart. Also one of the most politically driven places I have ever had the displeasure of working at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to focus and be more decisive in your decisions. Listen to your subordinates because they can offer you a perspective that you are oblivious to in your glass tower!
