    I worked at Mead and Hunt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has a strong emphasis on developing and maintaining a good corporate culture. The company also actively encourages professional development. Mead & Hunt definitely values its employees.

    Cons

    The medical benefits were a bit more expensive than previous employers. Technical support was occasionally less responsive than desirable.

    I worked at Mead and Hunt

    Pros

    worked there for 40 yrs. Had a personal relationship w/ president of our small company. Every thing was going well, except we were getting old( sorry) . Happens to all of us, sooner than latter, even if you are in denial!, anyway, Alzheimers aside, what was the question?

    Cons

    None. We did what needed to be done. Mark Mettle, or whatever he prefers to be identified to be identified as( sorry Mark , I forget) good man, and Ron Guthrie, another good person who needs to be identified although not often compensated for his skills. Nothing will be done, as has always been the case , but tried to do my best, as always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rajan, I think, knows what makes this company successful, at least I hope he knows what does. Bigger is not always better. EAK knew this. LCB knew this. Hope you know better.

    Many great people to work with, dedicated and professional. Depending upon the department, good teamwork and project management.

    Several departments are very top heavy with little chance for advancement. Work between departments is hit and miss.

    I worked at Mead and Hunt

    Pros

    My time as a summer intern was a good experience for me and solidified my desire to become an engineer. Mead and Hunt had a good culture and a positive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    I spent part of my time doing mindless administrative tasks in the office, which is to be expected as an intern. The rest of my time was spent in the field, which required long and grueling hours.

    I worked at Mead and Hunt

    Pros

    Everyone within Mead and Hunt is a professional and treats each other with respect, it is like nothing I have experienced with previous employers. Mead and Hunt cares about the employees and the employee families.

    Cons

    I was unable to negotiate vacation time equivalent to my previous employer - had to sign on with one week less vacation. Vacation time is accrued monthly, so it can be a number of months of working before you accrue enough time to take one day off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The core hours employees are asked to work sometimes do not fit in to the busy schedules of families with school-aged children. Have a it more flexibility with start and end times.

    Good ethics; decent market position; quality top-level leaders; struggling to know how to grow

    I have been working at Mead and Hunt

    Pros

    Down to earth relationships. Will work to keep employees they value. Overall, fair company that treats people well. Makes decisions that seem to keep the company profitable without hurting the people.

    Cons

    Flat and undefined hierarchy that makes it difficult to understand how to move upward. Difficult to understand when/if/how you will be invited to be a stockholder. Company is struggling with how to grow. Strong and capable leadership up top but few flag carriers in the middle/upper middle. Although a program is in place, it is so lack-luster that i would say they don't pay for graduate degrees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more effective training programs; Communicate more effectively with employees how it will profit them to stay with Mead & Hunt; The culture is pleasant and great but in the end capable employees need and want to make good money.
