Great medium sized A/E firm that's on the verge of growing into a prominent national company.

I have been working at Larson Design Group full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Employee owned, profit sharing, embraces technology, diverse services/markets, creative marketing, good culture, opportunities for those who step up and prove themselves.

Cons

Too Heavy focus on traditional Engineering practices. Needs to grow Surveying and Architectural services more while also supporting a more agile and innovative Engineering group that can take on national competition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sr. Management needs to understand all A/E/S fields better, not just the fields they came from. Leadership transition looming which have many concerned about future (stock cashout?). Inject some fresh blood into the Sr. Management, Board, and other decision making teams to take the firm to the next level.

    I worked at Larson Design Group full-time

    Pros

    Generally friendly atmosphere, good client base, senior management seems keen on growth. Good IT staff.

    Cons

    Branch offices are not supported or marketed effectively. Management decisions seem to be made on a "who's your buddy" basis rather than employee capability. Long-term strategy seems to be focused too much on money-grabbing in the gas industry. Employees do not get good feedback, and LDG does not have a clear and effective set of job descriptions. Employees have been exploited with little to no reward, or even recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch offices need better support. Too many people are just coasting on LDG's past success.

    I worked at Larson Design Group

    Pros

    They have plenty of work and plenty of Overtime if you want it. There is a lot of overhead with this group during the summer, and it allows for learning and career advancement!

    Cons

    CVS remodel team has horrible management and do not care about how the work gets done even if it means stepping I toes during the process. The sad thing is the company as a whole is ok with this even the HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe it's time to take anger management classes or have the 4 horsemen removed from their positions completely because this group will never reach it's potential while they are there!
