Pros

Really fun work and lots of opportunities to gain valuable experience for recent grads.Lots of things are changing with the recent merger with Cardno. Some of the bad apples have been asked to leave or have left on their own. Steps are being taken to train middle managers to promote organic growth.

Cons

Promotion is completely arbitrary within the company and largely depends on the office you work out off, the working group you are in and especially the manager you have. Opportunities to work toward promotion can be difficult to come by; as employees become proficient at or exceed the expectations of their level they can be held there in the effort to keep project bids competitive with other less expensive consultants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide lower level employees more professional training. Prompt middle managers to give constructive criticism. Guard against blacklisting employees without feedback. Standardize promotion standards between offices and working groups.
