Greeley and Hansen is a great place to work if your looking for lots of free time and no place for advancement

Civil Engineer (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsThere is tons of free time. The deadlines for things are generally twice as long as you need to get them done. The offices are for the most part nice to work in. Greeley and Hansen generally overcharges clients so there is plenty of money to be made.

ConsThere is very little room for advancement. It is a very flat structure (entry level -> associate ->principal) which means that you will have to work with the company for many years in order to move up. There is also a very large age discrepancy. Half of the company is over 40 while the other half is under 30. While everybody is amicable, the younger people do not have much in common with the older people and therefore do not interact very much. The modeling software needed for most projects is not available. Rather than spend some money to get the software, the company generally chooses to contract out the work losing more money than doing it in house.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management needs to be more involved in the other employees. The senior management is rarely seen on a day to day basis.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
