    I worked at Integral Group full-time

    Pros

    Great healthy snacks, young group that is full of fun things to do outside of work. People really try to invite everyone regardless of department to outings.

    Cons

    Horrible Management, bad pay compared to industry standards, watched one ridiculous woman cry on multiple occasions (because her work load was "too large"). Mindless HR department complete with questionable business practices. No work life balance- people have been rumored to sleep in the "meditation room" because of pulling such late nights. the list goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work out your kinks before trying to run a company. Each office (although different in market draw) should use the same company information, and company message should be the same across all offices- which it currently is not.

    Pros

    -I am surrounded by people passionate about innovation and providing the best design and analysis for their clients.
    -Collaboration is standard operating procedure here.
    -Education opportunities are rich: we have weekly lunch and learns, are encouraged to take continuing education classes and seminars.
    -We "walk the talk": this is a green office. Energy efficiency and sustainability is practiced through-out the office.
    -Oakland office is a showcase of what we can do: we designed it to be the highest points, lowest cost per sf LEED Platinum in the world
    -Great benefits, not just health insurance, but bike to work, organic fruit, lunchtime running clubs...

    Cons

    Having grown from a small to mid-size company, we are still perceived by some clients as small.

    Constriction of economy has limited the size and scope of projects coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to foster transparency in business objectives and direction.

    Set Integral apart from other engineering companies by continuing to take only the best and greenest projects.

    Tap into employee's pride in working for such a cutting edge company.

    Share challenges --not just triumphs-- with employees.
