Challenging fun work environment with rewarding major design projects for national and internal clients with diversity.

Vice President (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

ProsChallenging projects and advancement potential.

ConsLife / Work Balance Understanding and Assistance needed.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not promote someone to Vice President anouncing publically his great performance, adding utilization manager of all PM workplans and staffing to his Health Care project responsibilities just to then lay him off a year later. Especially after it was just anounced publicly a few months prior to the lay off. Perception to his professional career was devastating and it continues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
