An overall good place to work, but with room for improvement.

Pros

Multi-disciplinary environment, and numerous offices around the Northeast, ensures that there is a fair amount of diversity in the types of projects you work on and the overall career path, if that is what you are looking for. Attacts generally good people, as employees.

Cons

As in most civil engineering companies, pay levels are structured so that you are just comfortable enough to get by, but that's it. Unfortunately, it is difficult to significantly increase your pay from year-to-year without either being promoted to management or threatening to leave. Also, when profits are perceived to decline (as they do from time to time), staff training is generally the first thing to be cut. This is costly to both employer and employee.

Advice to Management

Although there have been improvements in recent years, I would advise that you try a little harder to be on the cutting edge of civil engineering technology and innovation, rather than stick with the same outdated playbooks.

    Pros

    The larger offices have a fun young core that you will work. You get paid for overtime. There are a variety of different projects that you can work on to expand your engineering knowledge on. Starting to incorporate company standards.

    Cons

    There is no clear direction from management. There have been numerous attempts to create a better communication between management and the employees, but it seems more like a reactionary response to simmer the complaints. Very little mentoring and lunch and learn sessions. Client relationship is not that best. There is a mentality of lets just get the plans done and approved rather trying to find the best solution for the client. The atmosphere does not make you want to do your best work. As a result there is high turnover in the company.
