I worked at Michael Baker full-time (more than an year)

Pros

People were really friendly. The working environment is also very good so you can work with people and enjoy your daily routine everyday instead of just waiting 5 o'clock. The 401k matching benefit and the scholarship program is a bonus to me.

Cons

While the job is stable and enjoyable, the compensation is not as good as some other companies. But this is something people have to choose, I guess, between a stable with lower compensation position and a riskier with higher salary position.

    I have been working at Michael Baker

    Pros

    Offices all over the country, if you know the right person, you can advance your career

    Cons

    Too many changes in the past couple of years; has become far too political, acquiring too many firms and focusing on romancing those companies but forgetting about their own, CEO was let go in December, hundreds of employees losing their jobs, discussion of being purchased, pay is not very competetive, poor communication from corporate office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the politics and stop being Pittsburgh-centric

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Michael Baker full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture here is nice, and Brad Mallory was a character. The people that I worked with directly were great. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed, which was nice.

    Cons

    Pay could have been more competitive and as a Marketing Specialist doing proposals they keep you really busy. Compared to my current job, Baker's proposal writers are slave-driven. Corporate is too concerned with processes rather than keeping the client satsified, in my opinion.
