I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

ESOP! The ESOP is the greatest motivator or this company. For outsiders its hard to believe or understand that a stock program can motivate or even shape the culture of a corporation, but this one does and for the better. If you stick it out you will retire very happy.

Cons

Extremely high expectations and there can be long work weeks. Although your efforts will not go unrecognized, usually.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent with possible career paths and voice to the employees if they are on track with their plan.

    I worked at Burns & McDonnell full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Provide better mentoring and training.

    I worked at Burns & McDonnell full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great variety of work
    Nice Headquarters
    Nice events for interns

    Cons

    Felt lost in the shuffle
    Didn't have enough work for me to do to keep me busy
    Didn't feel challenged
    Program seemed unorganized
    Didn't feel like this is a place where I would be appreciated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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