    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Rockville, MD
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD

    I worked at Greenman-Pedersen

    Pros

    The pay rate is good. The Rockville office is pretty. There's always candy in the front desk bowl.

    Cons

    Office culture is sexist and alcoholic. Male engineers can show up in cartoon sweatshirts and unkempt beards but women, almost all relegated to the marketing department but even if not, are expected to be at their best Barbie doll. You're expected to know exactly how they like things done without prior instruction. Snarky comments are made when you're new and get something like formatting a Word document slightly differently than preferred. Supervisors get drunk on company time and I witnessed a male married supervisor making out with a young female employee. If you have personal dignity and do not happen to be an extrovert who loves to drink, or if you happen to be a woman who cares more about the quality of your work than whether your makeup is applied good enough for your manager's standards, do not work here. It is belittling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office culture is alienating. By focusing more on "creating a family" you in fact create a clique. A "family" accepts its individuals for their strengths, does not size up and judge whether someone fits in or not. You do great engineering work - it's a shame you lose out on perfectly good employees because of unprofessional and degrading behavior.

    Pros

    Laid back company. No more comment

    Cons

    No diversity at all. If only they could provide the number of engineers that are of color. Probably 2 out of 2000 employees. Nice!

    I worked at Greenman-Pedersen full-time

    Pros

    A large company with good benefits.

    Cons

    Unexpected layoffs, long hours, relocations at the last minute and employees are not treated equally. No recognition for employees who go above and beyond their job description and no employee loyalty. This company does not care if you have worked for them for 1 week or 10 years!! Have you experienced a layoff from this company?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee satisfaction at work increases productivity.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits, Relaxed Atmosphere. People they hire are knowledgeable and you get to dress in corporate casual attire.

    Cons

    Office workers do not get time and a half after 40hrs per week, but they will tell you that you must work over 40 hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees time and a half after 40 hours, hire more people so people aren't working ten hour days, 7 days a week.
