    Poorly Managed Company, Extremely Top Heavy with Plenty of Managers and Little Results

    Former Employee - Structural Engineer in Oak Brook, IL

    Pros

    Projects, when they have them, are very interesting and as a structural engineer, I enjoyed the diversity and challenges they presented.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. They treat employees as if they are dispensable according to their incredibly sporadic workload. Massive amounts of work for a period of time and then nothing. The OakBrook office is down to the bare bones now. After laying off/furloughing a good portion of their engineers, project assistants and such, they have the nerve to schedule an interviewing open house not but a few months later. I would only recommend if you are desperate. And then, expect to get laid off sometime in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your jobs, bring in work consistently. Plan for slow times. Hire and fire is never a good long term plan.

    Former Employee - Project Assistant
    Former Employee - Project Assistant

    Pros

    Friendly people; flexible work hours; ample parking; good medical and dental benefits package. OK to work here if you are an engineer or chargeable to the client.

    Cons

    Employees are not valued; no development programs; no 401k matching; only 5 holidays; no employee events i.e. family picnic; company is extraordinarily top-heavy with management who are not chargeable to clients. As soon as you become not chargeable to the client, you will be laid-off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to value employees through compensation and recognition.

    Company politics prevail over objectivity.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Oak Brook, IL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Oak Brook, IL

    Pros

    Vast diversity of projects. Some great mentors, peers, & friends

    Cons

    White list employees vs black list employees. White listers walk on water & black sink--regardless of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in poor performers fairly and across political barriers

    Former Employee - Engineer

    Pros

    Engineers and designers were generally good people and pleasant fellow employees. Location had good access to expressways and was a very nice building with covered parking.
    Pay was good and hours were flexible.

    Cons

    Upper management knew how to do small consulting T& M projects, but has no clue on how to manage large capital projects, much less manage engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Old Boy network of managers and get some real project managers. Real project mangers who know how to deal with clients and not just beat team members over the head when the project scope increases and the manger does not get increased hours.

    Pros

    Care about employees, try not to layoff anyone.

    Cons

    Low on pay rate, benefits, really not big jobs, just long term relationships with current clients. No new exciting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring back day after Thanksgiving holidy, 401k matching and get better medical and dental plans.
