    Pros

    Workplace happiness completely depends on what project you are assigned to and who your Project Lead and Project Manager are (although by and large your Project Lead will likely be inexperienced and your Project Manager will be too busy to pay much attention to you, exceptions found sometimes on projects deemed high priority). The company emphasizes quick promotion potential, but this comes at the cost of working in a chaotic environment. Raises are good only if you got a promotion, very much an up or out culture. Workplace is generally young, early 20s, which means either a fun workplace or an immature workplace, depending on your outlook. Most very positive reviews on Glassdoor are either written by new hires who have yet to see the insides of the company or by managers who want to make the company look good. People get disenchanted very quickly. Average time an engineer stays at Pinnacle is just under 1.5 years. Salary is overall good if you're an engineer, but they'll nickel and dime you on everything else.

    Cons

    Advancement determined by company need and how liked by management a person is, not by employee competence. Although, it's probably widespread in consulting that appearance matters much more than knowledge/experience. Constant turnover, and many current employees are looking for a way out. Due to the (very) high turnover rate, employees often advance to Project Lead positions before they are ready simply because the company needs them there. Brown nosers get ahead very quickly. There is so much overall chaos in the company that poor performers who are well liked can get the blame deflected and good performers who are not well like will go unrecognized on a bad project. Management currently consists mainly of people who have worked at Pinnacle since the early days straight out of college, stuck it out the longest, sucked up to their superiors the most, and got awarded with a management position. Hence management tends to be inexperienced and overconfident (although it was the overconfidence that helped them be good consultants in the first place). However, one positive trend happening is the emphasis on hiring experienced senior managers (long overdue). Also, don't expect to do any sort of engineering work if you're an engineer. Expect tracking ("managing") the progress of technicians and constantly fixing errors due to the lack of good training in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stereotyping your employees as being just a bunch of millennials who are willing to work long hours in very insecure jobs in exchange for beer and four square. Make Pinnacle a place people actually want to work long term and not just a place where many feel trapped either because they just graduated and don't have good experience or were just layed off during the recent round of oil company layoffs.
