    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company moving in a great direction. Corporate goals are realistic. Talented people, great projects, management is great growing rapidly. Good benefits, flexible work hours, good people, overall great place to work if you can stick it through a few years of below industry pay levels( even less than municipal/state in some instances)

    Cons

    Not enough mid level engineers to manage younger staff and allow project managers to do other tasks, almost no reward or pat on the back for doing above and beyond in projects. Pay is below industry average and don't reflect higher billing rates. Branch offices get less support from corporate than is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work, awful place to be compensated from. FO is plagued with entry level engineers and project managers, and almost no one in between. Kids out of college get there 3 years of excellent experience then move elsewhere to get better pay. rarely do people stick with through the lack of raises and compensation, which makes it tough to keep a balanced staff. Recommend promoting more from within and compensating more to keep employees for longer periods, which will build a more balanced team and create less stress on project managers.

    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. as an intern (Less than a year)

    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.


  9. 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.

    I worked at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
