    Pros

    Langan is a great company to work for. They treat their employees well, offering salaries that are competative with other similar firms, opportunities for bonuses, challenging projects, and the necessary resources to get the job done and done well! I have been at Langan for over 15 years and have advanced my career through these years. The work environment is good with lots of great people that are not only great at what they do but are people that I can call my friends! Langan creates a family environment offering opportunties to attend baseball games, holiday parties, themed lunches, etc. They have started to offer more flexible/mobile work opportunities with the introduction of laptops and use of VPNs so that you can connect to the network remotely.

    Cons

    Work life balance has in the past has been challenging but it is defintely getting better with the introduction of more fexible/mobile work opportunties!

    They also need to offer more project managment training.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Once you start under a manager it is difficult to move around and that can shape your experience.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Real opportunities to grow and hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Could use additional business development support people.

    Advice to Management

    The management of this firm grew it from one office in New Jersey, to being a recognized and respected worldwide presence while maintaining the culture and remaining private…keep doing what you are doing.
