    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Flexible schedule and no real dress code
    Interesting people who are passionate about what they do and the company
    Have been getting more training opportunities
    Good tuition reimbursement
    Senior Management have been communicating more with employees about the company performance and plans
    Overall, a great place to work

    Cons

    There's been a lot of change over the past couple of years and some senior managers seem to be holding on to the "old way" tightly
    Practices can differ between offices and groups
    Long hours and demanding deadlines at times
    Support Services employees (Accounting, IT, Marketing, HR) are looked down upon and treated as expendable by some senior managers

    Advice to Management

    Change is okay, especially if you want to improve
    Consider that Support employees are people, too, and can have a lot of positive contributions to the company
    The focus on building a positive place to work has not gone unnoticed, keep it up.

    Pros

    Low pressure. You are paid for overtime, but no one expects you to work on the weekend or late nights. There are some talented people there.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility. Projects are not very interesting or challenging. The work is sporadic and there are slow periods. Trouble maintaining client relations in SC office.

    Advice to Management

    Need to train lower level staff in business development. Some people and departments are siloed from one another.

    Flexible scheduling, Opportunity to work on many different projects, Personal Growth, Positive work environment, After work activities. Management listened when I suggested changes to projects despite my internship status.

    Cons

    Small company that gets small projects, though this does mean that even interns have opportunities to contribute significantly to projects.

    Pros

    good company to work at,good managers, no interference from upper management

    Cons

    none. small scale projects only.


  8. I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc.

    Pros

    Even young engineers are given responsibilities to help expand their work experiences. There is an education reimbursement program and usually a week of professional development at a conference relevant to your career.

    Cons

    The work mentality is to get it done in unusually short period of time at an exceptional quality, which adds to an atmosphere of stress.

    Pros

    Good group of people to work with for the most part, and the management does allow for good social interaction with your coworkers. The office environment was generally well furnished and technology was kept up to date.

    Cons

    Management is unwilling to pay the employees what they're worth despite billing rates higher than their competitors. Benefits are also behind competitors with no 401k match, no bonuses for most employees, and minimal profit sharing.

    Pros

    Fuss & O'Neill is a relatively large, multi-disciplinary engineering firm that has managed to keep most of it's small company feel. They have a very active employee committee that organizes a of host of extra-curricular activities. The variety of projects allow engineers to explore different interest areas.

    Cons

    Located in Manchester, CT; not an ideal location!

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to trim overhead so that we are more price-competitive with our competition.

    Pros

    Fuss & O'Neill is large enough to be truly multi-disciplinary, yet small enough to feel like a family. The firm is active in a broad range of project types. This keeps things from getting boring and monotonous. Individuals with the right skills and potential to handle more advance quickly.

    There is a core of forward-thinking executives that are really pushing to make Fuss & O'Neill a leader in sustainability. If there ideas are adopted, the firm will be well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    The firm has made several strategic acquisitions in the last few years. There have been some growing pains as these new entities are brought on board. There is a real danger that they will soon hit a "tipping point" and become a Dilbert-esque bureaucracy. Compensation is only average.

    Advice to Management

    It's O.K. to jettison the ballast. Sometimes the most compassionate thing you can do for an under-performer is cut them free rather than allow them to wallow in mediocrity.
