    It was a job.

    Engineering Technician (Former Employee)

    ProsIt helps you get familiar with how things operate in the construction filed. It also exposes you to a lot of different projects. You have the opportunity to network with many different companies. It's a fairly decent job if you do not want to become an engineer.

    ConsIf you are a recent graduate from engineering, do not take this job. Do not take this job especially if you have other offers. The work-life balance is horrible. Having a Saturday off is like a Holiday. The pay is not good until you reach overtime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe process of making a recent engineering graduate a technician before becoming an engineer/project manager is a horrible procedure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK, except when it's not

    Project Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsPSI can be an ok place to work. There are many professionals spread out across the country, mostly on the east coast. At the upper levels these folk are knowledgeable and can be helpful and teach you things. PSI is probably best for someone fresh out of school to work a bunch and gain experience working with big clients before going to a better organization.

    ConsPSI is very good at making money, but part of that is being lean and cutting staff whenever the workload dips. They don't treat people well and there is a whole lot of turnover at the professional level. It's unusual to talk to someone at the project or staff level who's been around for more than 2 years. And company policies are not designed to reward the people who do not stick around for a long time. If you are interviewing ask how vacation time accrues (you get your year's worth on your anniversary date, it's not granted incrementally) ask if you are replacing someone and what happened to them, ask how PSI matches retirement contributions (it's not a full match and there's a long vesting period to get the partial match), ask if you can expect a bonus or profit sharing, ask if you will ever be told to stay home w/o pay. But if you ask these questions you might not seem like a good prospective employee... If you really need a job you may not care about these issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou know what you're doing, keep earning your bonus.

    It has been a good learning experience and has taught me that I need to definitely start looking to advance my career...

    Engineering Tech I (Current Employee)

    ProsHours are plentiful and are usually quite easy to come by, so paychecks can easily benefit from that if you are willing to put in the time.

    ConsLong hours are sometimes expected of you even when you do not want them...

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter compensation/Performance bonuses would be a huge plus

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Proswhen the work was there, things were.great...i was treated well....they even put me up in hotels and such without question if needed

    Advice to Senior Managementmake presence more visible to those that don't just work at a desk, let the lowly techs know that they are appreciated
