Pros

The people that work here are hard working and provide a very friendly atmosphere in which to work. This is also an extremely interesting industry.

Cons

Corporate overhead is too large.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about the irony of referring to us as "Subordinates", when you talk about how we are a team.
It appears as though management has a "Don't stick your neck out" policy about desicion making. This does not work for a company that wants to keep it's position a leader in our industry.

    Great industry - on paper.

    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.
