    I worked at Parametrix

    Pros

    As an employee owned company, feel like each employee has a voice and can make some difference if they would like to. Good colaboration between teams and offices. Company knows how to have fun.

    Cons

    With today's economy, everyone is struggling to find work and it can be quite streesful. Office morale is a little down right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for more ways to share work and balance work between offices. One of the reasons Parametrix overhead may be too high is because we have a lot of support and admin staff.

    I have been working at Parametrix

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere
    Good allowance of time off and flexible work schedule, can work from home, etc
    Provides work related resources without much corporate hassle
    Benefits are decent. In general the HR side of the company is great. But...

    Cons

    A few bad apples have clawed to the top of the fray,

    Poor leadership, "do as I say, not as I do" mentality,
    People are treated based on the money/contracts they bring in. Bring in projects and they leave you alone. And if you don't bring in projects they won't help you. You are on your own here.
    Top heavy management, very high overhead. Lots of people who are responsible for programs but don't really seem to be doing anything tangible or productive.
    Lots of managers but no good leadership.
    No support by management. Any sign of trouble and you will be abandoned.
    In general the management is closed off to the main body of the company and that tends to breed rumors and speculation. Sometimes it feels like you are just manufacturing TV sets and not part of an employee owned company. It used to be a whole lot better. Now it's soaked in politics and power struggles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A leader has a responsibility to be the example. Show how things are done and help guide people with a hand and not a fist. Part of being a good leader is the ability to listen objectively and have trust in the people you work with. You are not always right, so listen to the facts don't dismiss the stories so quickly. You are part of family of coworkers that are not out to get you. Read any book on leadership. At least that might indicate you are trying to do a good job and care about the people around you.
