Great Company but too much OT required (work/life balance doesn't exist)

I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (more than a year)

Pros

great company, great benefits, nice fun people ...

Cons

demands placed on you typically far exceed normal human tolerances; work.usually expected to be completed in an unrealistic time frame (deadlines, deadlines and more deadlines)

poor project management, too many protocols to be followed for simple things

not willing to change things even if it's for the better of the firm

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your admin staff, pay attention to their concerns

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Friendly co-workers that are always willing to lend you a hand and are a pleasure to work with
    - Competitive pay and benefits packages
    - Diversity of projects, very rare that two projects are the same! Keeps things interesting
    - Growing emphasis on a "team" mentality, rather than a strict competitive environment
    - Great technical training and resources available throughout the company that are willing to train and teach when needed

    Cons

    - As several reviewers have already mentioned, there are sometimes an overwhelming number of projects assigned to staff and middle management, which causes high rates of burn-out
    - Not enough staff, causes a lot of late nights and non-billable hours
    - VERY client oriented (including low-budget projects, accelerated/unreasonable timelines, and sometimes decisions made to cut costs resulting in shortcuts) that add high levels of stress on staff and middle management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let the staff see the fruits of their labor (aka pass along praise from clients or other co-workers, interact with clients at low levels, share good and bad financial news, ect.) You'd be surprised to see how motivating that could be!
    - Keep offering great opportunities for career growth!
    - Offer opportunities to meet and interact with other offices
