    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work in exciting areas, industries and locations.
    Successful personal efforts will be recognized if it brings P3 forward with room to make mistakes but no constant celebration of mediocre results.
    Diverse team and global network is a great knowledge base for on- and off-project content.
    Super relaxed atmosphere, but also times of high stress.
    People with dreams will be able to make them true if they actively pursue them.
    Great team dynamics that build on personal engagement and desire to have fun at work.

    Cons

    Balance between high work load and relaxing time sometimes unequal.
    Constant growth put lots of responsibilities on key players
    Too slow to recruit and build up future leadership

    Advice to Management

    You are on the right way to become even more successful

    Pros

    the company is really good. salary is ok. If you like testing and you are ok with it its good place to be in, but testing for long time can get boring.

    Cons

    challenges are just like any other job.

    Advice to Management

    Ever one in the management is nice i haven't seen any one is not nice, management wise. I just feel like the management need to know how to deal with all the new people that they are hiring. also they need to understand that testing can get boring.

    Pros

    If you like to travel, then this is a nice job where you can learn and explore other parts of the US/world.

    Cons

    Everything. There is ZERO organization. You are going to be working multiple jobs at once (and you won't be getting paid for all of them). You need to manage the personnel that is supposed to be scheduling items for you. You need to manage your own expense/hours/nonsense on top of the job that you were HIRED to do.

    Salary is well below industry average for most employees is what I've heard. I got what I asked for but be prepared to expect something lower than what you've asked for. If you are a full time salaried employee, you do not get paid for overtime. Some projects require 60 hours of work, you will continue to get paid for 40.

    ***** MOST EMPLOYEES ARE NOT ENGINEERS AND DO NOT UNDERSTAND ANY TECHNICAL ENGINEERING ASPECTS OF THE JOBS THEY ARE DOING. *****

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals. Not people who have high school educations. Pay your employees what they are worth so you don't have to continuously see them leave and thus continue to hire.

    Management should be much more organized. If it wasn't for the learning experience and getting to interact with professionals from other companies, no one would work here. The prime benefit is to get some experience and then move onto one of your client companies - who have a good eye for talent.

    Pros

    1) Flexible hours
    2) Nice coworkers
    3) Nice IT Equipment (New phone and computer)

    Cons

    1) Low Pay
    2) Best managers have stepped down from management because of frustrations.
    3) Communication... any? Some?
    4) Work/life balance, not everyone wants to work 80+ a week.
    5) ...etc. See advice section

    Advice to Management

    1) Learn to listen to the ideas of your employees that are not in management. Why hire intelligent people if you will not utilize that intelligence.
    2) Do whatever you can to get solid employees. It should be unacceptable to hire questionable people. Being unable to staff a project with a quality person looks better than filling a spot with an unqualified person.
    3) Improve the variety of employee groups. 20-30 year old single men can only get you so far. There is no reason to avoid other groups.
    4) If someone isn't working up to par, get rid of them. Don't just shuffle them to a different project.
    5) Important departments are missing. HR, and Marketing are missing or unqualified.

    Pros

    It is what you make of it!
    Since the beginning of the year, there has been a constant flow of new projects for the engineering and consulting teams alike. These projects are challenging in nature and provide learning opportunities for new team members, as well as for more senior employees. P3 is requested to staff them with teams so that less experienced colleagues can learn from more senior staff on the project. Analysts (all minimum Bachelor Degree) and interns take care of internal tasks, research and preparation work for the projects. Very cool setup. The company offers continual opportunities to take the lead in projects, drive the client with full responsibility for the results, and they even expose you to the acquisition and selling process, if you aspire to do so. If you are the type that waits for an invite to do something, this might not be for you. But if you have the inner drive to achieve the goals that P3 has to offer, then you have a lot of freedom with the right guidance and assistance.
    The integration between the engineering and consulting teams, and the company backbone in the various offices has greatly improved.
    The equipment that you get is really cool. The company cares for everyone on the team and you can be assured that there is real interest to find the solution to a problem. Just bring it up and don’t wait for it to be discovered.

    Cons

    The company has worked through some growing pains and is coming out of changes that were implemented in the middle of last year. The current growth and the new projects are something not everyone is comfortable with, so be prepared to work your way through criticism. Some of the IT systems need further overhaul to keep up with the growth. Expect to travel and to show flexibility (new clients, new project content, different locations). Also the demand from clients on some of the Engineering and Consulting projects is challenging which comes with longer hours during peak times offset by a strong learning curve. I guess that is normal in an Engineering Consulting firm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the path that was put forward last year, it bears fruits. Focus on continues growth to offer more project opportunities, leadership opportunities and client experiences. Develop further rotational opportunities to other P3 divisions throughout the world to be able to participate in the global setup.
