    My experience was disappointing, frustrating and aggravating.

    Current Employee - Manager

    Pros

    The pay is good, but the health insurance sucks.

    Cons

    The work life balance is horrible. You will not be appreciated and you will put in very long hours. Newly hired Engineering Associates will have to compete with union employees for management jobs which limit opportunities for advancement. If you are an engineering major, do not expect to do any engineering work. The company as a whole does not respect its employees and the communities in which is does business with. Do not expect to succeed as a minority in the engineering department. This company is founded on good ole boy principles, is sexist and is run mostly by neanderthals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not train managers on Stephen Covey's Speed of Trust if the principles will not be followed. Look at the big picture and not just the numbers. The work environment makes employees feel like they are unappreciated, spinning their wheels and going nowhere!
