    I have been working at Michael Baker

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty decent and the flex hours are fantastic. Extracurrucular activities are also plentiful. Activities such as softball, kickball, soccer, bowling, picnics, and barbecues are great.

    Cons

    The budget is always being cut and it impairs our ability to do our jobs effectively. The pay is also substandard and raises are insulting. Tuition reimbursement is a joke. It would also help if telecommuting was encouraged more. Traffic in this area is terrible and only a few people are allowed to telecommute. I know I could easily spend at least one day a week working from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an ACTUAL tuition reimbursement program. Its nearly impossible to get any kind of reimbursement under the current program. It’s borderline false advertisement to even say that it’s a benefit.
