    Pros

    Fuss & O'Neill is large enough to be truly multi-disciplinary, yet small enough to feel like a family. The firm is active in a broad range of project types. This keeps things from getting boring and monotonous. Individuals with the right skills and potential to handle more advance quickly. There is a core of forward-thinking executives that are really pushing to make Fuss & O'Neill a leader in sustainability. If there ideas are adopted, the firm will be well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    The firm has made several strategic acquisitions in the last few years. There have been some growing pains as these new entities are brought on board. There is a real danger that they will soon hit a "tipping point" and become a Dilbert-esque bureaucracy. Compensation is only average.

    Advice to Management

    It's O.K. to jettison the ballast. Sometimes the most compassionate thing you can do for an under-performer is cut them free rather than allow them to wallow in mediocrity.

    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company moving in a great direction. Corporate goals are realistic. Talented people, great projects, management is great growing rapidly. Good benefits, flexible work hours, good people, overall great place to work if you can stick it through a few years of below industry pay levels( even less than municipal/state in some instances)

    Cons

    Not enough mid level engineers to manage younger staff and allow project managers to do other tasks, almost no reward or pat on the back for doing above and beyond in projects. Pay is below industry average and don't reflect higher billing rates. Branch offices get less support from corporate than is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work, awful place to be compensated from. FO is plagued with entry level engineers and project managers, and almost no one in between. Kids out of college get there 3 years of excellent experience then move elsewhere to get better pay. rarely do people stick with through the lack of raises and compensation, which makes it tough to keep a balanced staff. Recommend promoting more from within and compensating more to keep employees for longer periods, which will build a more balanced team and create less stress on project managers.
