Pros

The company's line of business is noble - repairing and maintaining aging infrastructure. It would seem at face value to be a high growth, in demand line of business. Somehow the company never really manages to fully capitalize on the potential.

Cons

Pay is average at best. The engineering group is exceptionally inflexible from a schedule standpoint - unless it's the employee's time, that is. Employees are expected to travel on their time (weekends are best), stay in cheap accommodations, and eat as cheaply as possible, and still show up on Friday when their flight gets back in (and you had better schedule the earliest flight back in that you can). Comp time is unheard of. Company seems to be in constant disarray from a organizational standpoint.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't have an MBA, so I'm not qualified to comment on management. One of the biggest challenges is probably to stop the flow of talented, experienced people out of the company and into its competitors. Insituform has trained the top people of practically every other company in the CIPP industry.

    Pros

    If you are in engineering, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Accounting does not treat or pay its employees very well and there is no room for advancement in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know management never listens, but please consider what your employees contribute.

    I worked at Insituform Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company will happily give you the tools you need to do your job. That's it. There was nothing else good.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible management with no people skills. Completely toxic, accusational, harsh workplace. Everyone hates their lives when they work here. I dreaded going into work every single day I worked there, absolutely no exceptions. Was talked down to and belittled every day that my manager was in the office, which wasn't very often. No mentorship or training whatsoever. Would never EVER work here again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't even ask. Hire people who are competent and don't treat them like crap. Stop trying to belittle your employees on a daily basis.
