    Pros

    Large company with good benefits.
    On the whole the employees are great people to work with.
    Flex Work Week Schedule.

    Cons

    To many political games on the senior level of the business group with personal agendas held by too many of the executive leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean; mean what you say. Follow through with your strategic planning with out changing it completely every step the way.

  2. Good practical experience, poor compensation, overall an average firm.

    Pros

    Broad portfolio of high impact projects. Great experience for entry-level engineers and technical professionals.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic. Firm is enormous and promising employees can get lost among the crowd. Tough to move up from within particularly if you'r not an engineer. A lot of very smart people being compensated very poorly for their abilities. Relatively unknown outside infrastructure and environment circles in USA and England, so doesn't carry too much weight on a resume despite its fortune 250 status.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate better coordination and collaboration among offices and regional business units. Develop performance metrics and promote opportunities for young employees to rise from within.
