Way too much gossiping and managemnet listening to opne side of the story only. Vert top down approach of leadership.

    Pros

    The project design/engineering staff is well qualified, Some offices are well organized and managed by a well trained professional staff while others are sorely lacking.

    Cons

    Some office project management offices need a better understanding of project requirements and employee benefits. Overall experience at some offices is of a pressure cooker mentality with somewhat incompetent chefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with respect and meld family life into the office activities. Understand how to manage contracts and clients to benefit the company.

  2.  

    Constant in-fighting, back-stabbing, butt-kissing, complaining, and general corporate politics.

    Pros

    Good benefits, full tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    One becomes an anonymous cog in a large wheel. There is no recognition or praise for a job well done. There are no bonuses in engineering.
