Pros

Wide range of major challenging projects.

Cons

Top management treats the staff like they cannot be trusted. They also do not seem to understand the businesses of some of their local offices. Benefits package is subpar. Focused on meeting quarterly earnings projections.

Advice to Management

Trust the people you hire or else improve their skills or outplace them.

    The nature of the industry, which is not for everyone especially in trying economic times.

    Keep up the good work.

    People don't mean anything it's all about the money, and don't forget how much USA work we can ship to INDIA.

    Pros

    None, just the Pay, the flex time and earned time after 10 years of service

    Cons

    Managers, More Managers and all Discipline Managers, they don't know anything about respect, there are no rules they can curse, they can be loud and they just don't care, a law suit waiting to happen, the good-ole boy network is alive and thriving, if you can't do the job you are promoted, there are some people that do their check balancing and personal work on company/client time.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid off anyone who has been there more than a decade and start over
