    Overall a good place to work for

    CIVIL ENGINEERING DESIGNER (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsThere is a steady supply of work because due to high quality work and happy clients. Coworkers are pleasant to work with.

    ConsThere appears to be little to no room for advancement. Generally everyone seem to be in the same position as they were years ago. This could be due to the lack of growth due to the economic downturn leaving each design team small such that there is no hierarchy, only the project manager and then the people beneath that position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in training.

    Disfunctional management system

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Ana, CA

    ProsA good staff. Fair benefits.

    ConsNo investment in company infrastructure.
    Management is more interested in stock value than the final product or employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to business. Invest in your own company.

    Too many queen bees and not enough workers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThere are several very talented people in each office and most have shouldered the additional responsibilities that came with so many layoffs very well indeed.

    ConsOrganization and communication is lacking in the upper management echelons. After more than six years without a raise, raises were given company wide but since most of them amounted to 2% it was very dissapointing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake advantage of the talent you already have in house and use/reward accordingly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Total downer if you're not a manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat location, beautiful offices, interesting projects, well respected within the development community

    ConsThe place thrives on underpaying junior staff. The place essentially makes the bulk of its profit on the backs of non-managerial staff while management gets to drive around in their company paid luxury cars - a manager blatantly drives around in a Benz SLR. End of year bonuses go only to managers while everyone else gets a grocery certificate.

    There is a clear lack of professional development or promotional opportunities for junior staff. The only thing most important to management is that you remain chargeable - they exorbitantly charge their clients while they offer you peanuts. They keep preaching that the company is employee owned and the need for fairness and transparency but something is severely wrong when the charging multiplier is 6:1 for some people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe simplest and best way to show your appreciation to your employees is to fairly compensate them. You can keep your Wednesday bagels and donuts for yourselves.

    Psomas is a very good place to work.

    Civil Engineering Designer III (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsThe information about the health of the company appears to be pretty much open to all employees. There are great medical benefits, compared to other industries. Flexible work hours and numerous holidays are given when needed.

    ConsIt seems that upper management is quick to make cuts in staff when profitability is not where they expect it to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a little more time to get out and meet the people in all offices - more than just showing up once a month to give the "state of the business" address. Meet with your people and be open to criticism.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
