A great place to do the same job for 30 years and retire.

Pros

Burgess & Niple offers outstanding benefits packages. They encourage recruitment of senior level talent by including previous career experience as years of seniority (for determination of benefits). If you have 10 years in a field at another company, your benefits are computed as though you had 10 years at Burgess & Niple.

Cons

Senior leadership team sometimes comes across at an "old boys club." Although senior leadership is very progressive, there is a definite prejudice against younger (under 50) talent. Promotion from within does not seem to be a priority. There is little to no succession planning for retiring staff and rather than develop internal staff for succession, the company will look outside for talent.

Advice to Management

Failure to promote from within reflects a failure of the company. Either failing to hire promotable individuals at the start or a failure to develop the talent within the company.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot in the engineering and surveying fields. And pay is above average for local companies in the same field.

    Cons

    Poster child for what's wrong with corporate America. They give empty promises to employees to get what they want, when they want. They do not embrace strong character and ambition. You only receive cost of living raises. They do not promote from within. No support from management and there's a BIG gap between management and workers. Almost has a high school" "clique" environment. They want robots to obey, not innovative minds to open new doors. In a company where management lives like rock stars, employees do not receive any sort of bonuses nor do they give rewarding and compensatory raises. They have managers that do not understand the departments they are overseeing. And their beloved core values are nothing more than marketing fluff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing. Embrace your employees, with financial and professional growth. The offices are full of "go with the flow" workers. And y'all killed the "go getter" attitude.
