I have been working at Greeley and Hansen full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Opportunity for exposure to all facets of engineering consulting (project delivery, BD, client management) early on in one's career- but need to speak up regarding interest.
- Never felt like a cog in the system while at this firm; individual attention provided; observed the impacts of a formal annual performance review and goal setting, allowing folks to identify their strengths and leverage them.
- Willingness to support (financially) innovative business line development

Cons

- Recent retirement of number of senior engineers and principals left gaps in specific niche technical areas
- Management teams revert to old behaviors when not reminded of commitment to change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Increase transparency of decisionmaking processes - Just share more with all levels -even the ones that dont need to know
- Continue to empower employees, seek out the geographies where this is not yet the case and force change
- Communally celebrate individual achievements on behalf of the firm.

    I have been working at Greeley and Hansen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was once a rewarding place to work staffed with numerous great engineers.

    Cons

    The new corporate model no longer stresses engineering. It's all about perception and image. No clear career path. Appears to promote based upon blind loyalty rather than competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When was the last time the company was recognized for a great engineering achievement? Refocus on the engineering aspect of the business and less time spent wanting to be liked.

    I have been working at Greeley and Hansen full-time

    Pros

    The people that work there are awesome.( Co workers)

    Cons

    Senior Management, Human Resources are awful to deal with. Senior Management only care about the fake awards, fake "new" remodeling of the home office. The HR group walk around like divas, bath mouth employees, gossip and don't respond in a timely manner when it comes to inquiries. I am afraid to ask a question based on past experiences. The company activities do feel forced and awkward. There are few lead women or minorities in upper management. Senior Management actually discourages other executive management with interacting with regular employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You care more about what is going into your personal pockets that you have lost sight of your employees which are the core of your success. Not once have they thanked us for helping make the company progress during some lean times. Interact with all of your employees, not just your engineers or your "yes" people.
