    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 Management

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


  2. If you like consulting engineer, top company in the industry

    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.
