I worked at Louis Berger

Pros

The people are great, highly educated and hard working.

Cons

Compensation; base and total package if there is one beyond base pay, is under market and the fringe benefits are downright dangerous if you're needing medical/dental coverage and other insurance. The 401-K is the worst I've ever seen, so don't count on retirement planning here. Raises are not always given and very few. if any, bonuses. HR really isn't.
There are numerous Government compliance issues and no strategic planning, so I wouldn't plan on being around for a long time. It's privately held and no equity for most.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get proper leadership.

    I worked at Louis Berger

    Pros

    The work can be interesting depending on what practice you are in. The international focus of the company is refreshing. Very eclectic work force.

    Cons

    Very nepotistic company. Management is extremely slow to react and ambiguous. Trying to be a large company but still acts very 'small'...and not in a good way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with employees. Less nepotism, more meritocracy. Mid level managers must delegate better. Much better benefits required to match competitors.

    Not a place for anyone in support or administrative services.

    Pros

    Met some very intelligent people and generally enjoyed working with most of the people there.

    Cons

    Expect late nights/weekends with no adequate compensation.
    No career path for administrative staff.
    No reward system for the general population. Only officers and private shareholders reap rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth.
