I have been working at Michael Baker for more than 5 years

Pros

The projects are high profile and diverse. Clients love the company and networking is easy. The teams are professional and most of the upper management is pretty good at managing the company.

Cons

The employee development and retention process is flawed and does not recognize and reward at a level that encourages the employee to excel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rapidly reward high performing employees. Scoring 'high' on a annual review consistently for years with out a promotion does not encourage an employee to stick around.

    I worked at Michael Baker full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and a lot of work.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership in senior management. Managers have limited hands on technical experience and poor project management skills. Limited opportunities for growth. Management acts as a roadblock to career progression for many. Limited training opportunities. Low employee morale. Managers are territorial with clients. No budget for conferences/seminars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on employee development. Hire leaders. Pay closer attention to employee retention. Teach project managers how to manage projects.
