I worked at Lockwood, Andrews, & Newnam

Pros

Generally a relaxed environment. Good work-life balance in the satellite offices. Good quality younger staff, some diamonds in the rough.

Cons

Senior managment spent too much time behind closed doors. Did not provide enough mentorship and feedback to staff regardless of the makeshift "training" activities. This is a "good-ole-boys" club and this was heard from several clients. Unless you have the ability to bring in work or are politically well-connected this is not the place to grow your career.

Technical standards (CAD and standard specifications) a huge hinderance to project development. Company needs to develop a good flexible standard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe upper management has the right approach but they are not holding middle management accountable for the development of the staff. The company is too top-heavy. You need to cut loose some of the senior folks who are not bringing in enough work to cover their overhead burden.
