Current Employee - Senior Associate in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Heery full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great Staff. Highly respected in the Construction Industry for Project and Program Management.
Weathered the economic down turn and become a leaner more focused company.

Cons

Slow to more new technology to the field personnel. Travel expenses carried personally until re-embused at minimum 2 weeks. (hard on junior employees)

    Pros

    Competitve salary. Good benefits (until NYC got involved) lots of nice people to work with. Professional white collar environment.

    Cons

    Senior management. Promotions are based on cronyism rather than merit. Once you become a VP they will never get rid of you. Too many VP's that do not produce drag down profits. Middle management is generally abused in order to get the work done rather than have VP's pull their weight. Sr management does nothing to change that culture as they are more worried about getting sued and protecting their own high paying jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the do-nothing VP's, cut your own salaries. Cannot justify a company going from a billion to 200 million in revenues and keeping SR management salaries the same and jettisoning the people that actually produce the work.

    Pros

    - Relaxed atmosphere vs. some other firms
    - Great Work/Life flexibility
    - Plenty of recognition from management when doing great work
    - Higher job security even though the industry has had it's ups and downs

    Cons

    - Not much room for growth if you don't want to focus on engineering expertise over your career
    - Not much support for non-billable activities (professional development), the company does not have "deep pockets" for supporting a lot of activities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to better enable career growth for employees. It can be difficult to see any path "up the ladder" other than being a subject matter expert.
