Pros

Good opportunities to expand knowledge and experience.

Cons

Severely underpaid and over utilized; Everything comes down to numbers regardless of value to the company; Turnover is higher than desired; Turnover without replacement is leading to overworked employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate your employees that show value to the company.

    Shareholders expect employees to work a lot to be "billable" but yet with little recognition

    I worked at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    At first there were, but no pros - employees are treated poorly

    Cons

    Used to be a "family oriented" environment, however became the exact opposite of that. Now a very political envirnoment where managers harass thier employees and HR does nothing about it; even with numerous complaints...........its about who you know and if you are willing to put in 50 hours a week, to ensure billability, in order to advance, if you don't want to, well then you will never advance - quote un-quote

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that people you promote to manage employees are capable of doing it, give them training and monitor them by getting feedback from the employees;

    I worked at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is an opportunity to work on projects throughout North America and gain a lot of experience on various types of projects working with a lot of great people.

    Cons

    The company is very much an old boys club with an expectation to work 50 plus hours every week. If you are not willing to work long hours your career will not go anywhere; definitely not a job for someone who wants to spend time with their family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a much needed change needed in the perception of hard work, and should not solely be based on the hours worked. Bonuses should not only be awarded to those who work long hours, many employees work very hard and accomplish a great deal in a regular work day.
