Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer  in  Pittsburgh, PA
Current Employee - Senior Staff Engineer in Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very well organized and a lot of room to grow. The office is mostly a younger group of engineers/scientists and is an exciting place to work. Everyone is well liked by their co-workers. The demand can be high at times, but it is well understood and appreciated by the managers. Everyone has an opportunity to meet clients, bring in work, and involve themselves in business development and various professional and non-professional organizations. The management is very easy to approach and talk to and is very enjoyable to work for. Management allows its staff a large amount of responsibility with excellent guidance, but never overwhelms you with more than what you can/should be able to handle. The Pittsburgh offic has a small office appeal, with the ability of a major nationally recognized company with significant resorces. This is an excellent place to work and would suggest it to anyone.

Cons

The "Cons" are consistent with any company an individual may work for, that is to say nothing specific that you wouldn’t have from any other engineering firm.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management is doing a fantastic job with its employees. As long as they continue to compensate well and allow for such significant professional growth, there will be no problems in continuing the progression of this office.

    Pros

    at this company the staff get to work on cool, complex, and high profile projects. great place to accelerate your career. the managers involve you in the direct discussions with the client, so you get max exposure and learn the business. they don't pigeonhole you into doing mundane tasks with no background on big picture.

    Cons

    having a direct line to clients means full impact of clients demands for quick turnaround and sometimes short notice. this can lead to spikes of long hours. but the managers let you balance it out the next week after deadlines pass ("comp time". leave early, personal day, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase communication to younger staff, to give feedback and listen to feedback from younger staff.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Challenging work environment, great staff, very supportive upper management. You can make your own future here. Pays very well compared to peers, particularly in terms of bonuses.

    Cons

    Struggles with work-life balance and retention, particularly with the younger generation that doesn't seem to want to stick with one company long. Overall senior management does well but one of the negatives of recruiting the best and the brightest and providing a tremendous amount of training is that former employees generally find it very easy to find other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay is good and bonues are important. The social aspects need to be improved. It made sense to stop some social activities during the recession but now we really need to go all out again with golf outings, christmas parties, etc. Teamwork and loyalty is what helps keep people here. We are rampng back up but we're not there yet.
