    Pros

    Flint tabled a very attractive offer to get me in the door. Once there, they were open and honest about some of the challenges facing the company and the steps being taken to improve them. Flint is very concerned with employee engagement and retention, especially of experienced employees, and this effort has shown up in things like flex time, holiday purchase options and more frequent feedback.

    Cons

    It is an oil services company at the end of the day, so sometimes the focus is mainly on getting and completing projects. I think that is true of a lot of companies, so it is nice to see that Flint is at least trying to become a better employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to employee feedback and ready to make changes when issues are identified.

    Pros

    Flexible, nost offices are willing to work around your schedule. There is a lot of room for growth and promoting from within. There is also a lot of opportunity to transfer between offices. There are a lot of different types of office. From Los Angeles which is 350 people to smaller offices of 10-15 people.

    Cons

    Billability is #1. You make money for URS you have a job, you don't, bye, bye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
