    I have been working at Lauren Engineers as an intern

    Pros

    An ideal work atmosphere in a wonderful town [Abilene, TX] with friendly caring coworkers and townsfolk. Interesting and challenging work. Opportunity to learn from the experienced employees. Focus is on construction and company has been climbing regularly in industry rankings.

    Cons

    Office managerial skills range from aloof to micro resulting in some potential for growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find and develop management that will hold individual contributors accountable as opposed to believing they must be accountable for details of work performed by others or in the opposite extreme that things will take care of themselves - note that hiring individual contributors who are capable and willing to be held accountable for their work is the key to success.

    Management of people needs improvement in handling and promoting employees, direction is not clear and regional offices can conflict with corporate.

    Benefits are good but not great, could see improvement in vacation and profit sharing. Leadership needs a better handle on assessing talent and managing people.

    Pros

    The people are the best part, everyone is very friendly and helpful. I learned a lot on my internship.

    Cons

    It took me awhile to learn all my responsibilities. All the learning is on the job so you have to be sharp and pay attention whenever you receive instruction or you'll hurt yourself in asking a second time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a training program

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my job at Lauren's corporate office; respected my supervisor and coworkers.

    Cons

    I was at the company when downsizing occurred and some of the decisions were difficult. The company did; however, make every effort to keep employees informed of the situation and to act ethically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lauren is a great example of leadership coming from the top. Great ethics and a Christian attitude! Keep up the good work.
