    Pros

    Exceptionally supportive and patient team. Very organised "on-boarding" process makes you feel part of the company straight away. No distinction between full time and intern staff.

    Cons

    Office was very quiet with not much of an attached group social life. Office was also very remote.

    Advice to Management

    Promote office social gatherings.

    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

    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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding a 360 review or other feedback loops.

  7. Principal and Sr. Associates are OK, however, some new managers need more mentoring from their seniors.

    Pros

    Technically inclined, mobile connections, rich work history, and agile workforce.

    Cons

    Board members may not be fully aware of local market condition, especially in an emerging remote market. Impose unrealistic expectations. Do not take time to sort BS from reality provided by their local associates in that market. Top heavy with over 350 managers in a 900 people firm, vertical growth may take up to 3~5 years. No annual cost of living salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Board memebers, please visit all of your locations.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment with very good people. Interesting and challenging projects. High emphasis on continued training and support to do so (financially and otherwise). Bonuses are excellent. Compensation and benefits are competitive. Wage increases over time keep up with competitors (unlike in many other companies where you need to leave to get a decent raise).

    Cons

    Work-life balance has been improving but there is more to do. Fast paced environment means it is definitely not a place for people looking to coast through.

    Advice to Management

    Although management appears to have the best interest of the employees at heart more transparency would help to gain trust. Disparity between upper management and middle management.

    Pros

    Very good salary (plus bonus) and benefits. Independent work environment, not micro-managed. Interesting and challenging projects. Lots of training opportunities and room for career growth. Freedom to pursue different or new opportunities of personal interest.

    Cons

    Rollercoaster of having too much work followed by not having enough work. Challenge to stay billable while spending many hours on non-billable work. Limited mentoring and technical guidance, which sometimes feels like freedom and independence, and other times feels like you're being "thrown in the fire" on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more guidance and mentorship. Understand full scope of Langan's services and target wider variety of projects that benefit all disciplines (i.e not just engineering).
