    The leadership is not afraid to take risks in terms of new business areas and they reward those willing to help.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A great group of people work at Langan in all offices. They are mostly dedicated and hard-working people. Mostly allows for flexibility in schedule. Offers straight-pay overtime for non-management engineers, which is an excellent perk (considering the amount of work they sometimes have to do). The variety and diversity of project work and experience is exceptional for a small (<1,000 person) firm. At Langan I have worked on high-profile, complex projects that are local to my office as well as overseas.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be an issue sometimes. Often to meet the client demands and expectations that are unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on training, engaging and fostering new employees should be priority #1 since the firm is growing so much.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time

    Pros

    Health Benefits are great compared to what some other companies are offering today. Managers are very willing to allow you to have a flexible schedule (i.e. work from home or another office). Compensation is competitive, if not better than other companies.

    Cons

    Corporate structure creates competition between shareholders resulting in inefficiences in management of work staff. Resource sharing between offices does not happen often as work is kept within your group. A combination of vacation and sick time to Personal Time Off (PTO) would be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve work-life balance and billability goals that are realistic for those who want to do good work, but also get training or attend lunch-time seminars to help advance their career. Continue to break the "Silo" feeling of how projects are managed to allow people to work on projects with different project managers, offices etc. so that we can be exposed to not only different projects to be come more well-rounded, but also to experience difference management styles.

    Pros

    Incredible benefits, perks, bonus, salaries. Great career opportunities and support from upper management to pursue those goals.

    Cons

    Some managers and staff engineers put in alot of hours, so there is pressure to keep up with those to not be looked down upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to know they are evaluated based on their quality of work / effort and it is their choice on the number of extra hours over 40 they put into their careers.
