    A good mix of people and projects that make a satisfying work environment.

    Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee) Woodbury, NY

    ProsThe company is large enough to attract some good working talent and win some of the larger, more interesting projects. The health benefits plan is a good Blue Cross PPO and there is some form of retirement savings program contribution by the company. Local management had a good supporting position on family being important, and community volunteering. Education reimbursement for masters degree pursuits.

    ConsHome office several hundred miles away, and out of state, did not understand the local market but insisted on it's one size fits all approach. Centralized management style to the point of micromanaging with little or no flexibility to the local offices. Local office directors needed approval from home office to hire a $10/hr. receptionist. Accounting group has no flexibility or consideration for the difference in client needs between private industry, and local, state or federal government contract accounting requirements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow a little more autonomy to the local and regional offices to hire and make certain policy decisions as they know their local market best. Management needs some decentralization rather than the remote rule of unfamiliar territory by the proverbial "bean counters"..

    Highly Organized Firm

    Technical Manager (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsWhen I worked there the management in Harrisburg was highly organized. When you called the head administrator she would always help you with who you needed to speak with or what you needed to do, including referring you back to the admin manual. They kept an excellent control of financials for projects. Locally, the office had its ups and downs, but it was a great place.

    ConsCoffee was always a problem. Each office had to purchase their own coffee and employees had to pitch in. It was an end of month problem. The firm was a bit tight, but then they brought in PE's making good money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your organized management style.
