I worked at Burns & McDonnell full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Employee stock plan if you last long enough to fully vest. Company growing. Better for experienced people rather than new grads. Offices are different in each city....some better than others. Diverse practice areas offer variety and ability to learn different industries.

Cons

Everyone too busy to mentor. Asked to take on work without appropriate training. Work cyclical and fear of layoffs too often. Vesting period too long and too much compensation is back end loaded.

Advice to Management

Provide better mentoring and training.

    Pros

    ESOP is great. The people are fun to work with. We get chili once a year. If you love to work all the time then this is a good place.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Hours are long with no overtime. There is not much mentoring available. That is about it for the cons.

    Maybe scale back the intern program or make it more selective?
