    Pros

    A family oriented employee owned company. Many employees have been there for a long time, which is going to open up room for young mid-level employees to move up the ladder as some retire. Personal needs are appreciated. There are many talented and good people there who are fun to work with. Company has an abundance of technical resources. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Company structure lacks solid definition. At times, employee turnover seems to be higher than average. Salary is slightly below par for some offices. Some employees lack motivation and drive. Lack of organized training for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to eliminate organizational voids, motivate employees to perform their best, initiate better training.

    Pros

    Overall employees are highly motivated and dedicated, the company finally began a policy to allow unused vacation time, up to a maximum number of hours, to carry over to the following year.

    Cons

    HR or senior management writes 5-star glassdoor reviews to boost the company's rating on this site. Divisions are understaffed giving employees heavy workloads, employees are payed below market value, the company has high employee turnover due to job dissatisfaction, no 401k matching, two weeks vacation and one float holiday are earned per year until you've reached five years of service, no earned sick time, expect a 3-5% yearly pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce employee turnover and show that you value your employees by compensating them with a competitive salary and raises, senior management and mid-level management need to be more transparent and honest with employees.

    Pros

    Great people, interesting projects, best office culture ever

    Cons

    It's not a place for slackers. You'll work hard. We all work hard. We're proud of the work we do. It's not a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep visiting offices to spread the mission. The COO, Dave Delizza, is the man! The real deal.

    Pros

    Relatively stable employment, and mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    Horrific management that do not care about it's employees at all. As nice as most of the workers can be, the individuals running things are some of the absolute worst people to have to work with. If you are not an engineer, there are no long term opportunities or reasons to stay with this company.

    Pros

    Some truly great people work here. In general, the company does a very good job at sharing work between busier and less busy offices and divisions to help balance utilization.

    Cons

    The company seems to undervalue its younger employees, and does little to help them develop and grow professionally. The company is willing to spend a lot of money to obtain very experienced individuals who often possess little knowledge of value but who have lengthy and impressive looking resumes.

    Advice to Management

    Upper and middle managers should do more to encourage and demand learning and professional development of all employees. Do more to attract and retain young talent. Implement programs and cultural values to help develop younger staff. Pay higher salaries for younger staff.

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Learning is a plus, with many people to glean from and learn from.

    Cons

    Slow on passing out raises. Does not like to progress with technology to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to buying new technology, knowing that the projects will come, as opposed to being stuck with outdated equipment saying, "we will get new equipment when the new job gets here". That mentality leaves you in the dark ages very quickly.
