    I worked at Paul C Rizzo Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Rizzo was a fantastic place to work. I started as a temp and was quickly promoted to full time after proving myself. They immediately granted me a salary increase and more flexible hours. The staff was wonderful and everyone is extremely friendly.

    Hourly wages are a downside.

    Pros

    I was dissatisfied with this company, nothing was really good about it. But every experience in life I would not take away but I would not reccommend this company to anyone who wants a stable atmosphere, no dissrespect to Mr. Rizzo, he is a hard working, good man.

    Cons

    bad pay, bad enviroment, no room for advancement

    Pros

    When I started this company was welcoming and the work was fulfilling.

    Cons

    After the CEO left his daughter in charge of the entire office it became a disorganized mess. Managers are completely lost and have no clue what they are doing. Most of the managers are friends of family. The people running things are rarely qualified to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and hire someone who has experience and education.

    Good company for people serious about engineering consulting. Small, though.

    I have been working at Paul C Rizzo Associates

    Pros

    Opportunities around the world, in select countries. Pays well, considering the size of the company. Opportunities for technical training. Meritocratic environment.

    Cons

    Small company. Not a lot of training. Must be a sufficient self-starter to thrive. Not the best company if you're not sure that engineering consulting is what you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees that demonstrate interest to have a say in the strategy and the direction of the company to have an opportunity to do so.
