    I have been working at S & B Engineers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mid sized company that supports family first. Benefits of a larger company without getting lost in the crowd. Honors loyalty and time spent working for the company.

    Cons

    There are not many opportunities to advance, as you would experience at a larger company with many levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer incentives to advance. Offer training and cross training opportunities.

    Pros

    It is a relaxed atmosphere with friendly people. Schedules can be pretty flexible depending on the project. It is a very family oriented company.

    Cons

    There isn't a lot of age variation. Not many employees in their 20s and early 30s. It is required to use 16 hours of vacation time before you can tap into your sick hours.

    I have been working at S & B Engineers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -great pay and hours on both sides, office and field
    -good benefits
    -loyalty is a two way street, i saw neg posts but have not had any issues with my management/dept at all
    -do their VERY best to accomodate and keep employees employed when jobs are scarce or work is slow
    -work together

    Cons

    -people posted about career, jobs, etc. It is the industry itself, that does not change.
    -everyone is related or connected with someone and that can create issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably time for some changes in senior leadership/company roles, some people are too stuck in their own ways. Listen more to the mid level staff and below and take their advice.

    Pros

    Good company. Loyal to you if you are loyal to them. S&B demands performance and gives crcredit to its performers. Has a smaller company feel and will try to help employees find spots during downturns in the workload. No mass-hire/mass-fire like some of the larger companies out there.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot if room for advancement; however, annual reviews are conducted.

    Former Employee - Drafter in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Drafter in Houston, TX

    I worked at S & B Engineers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good computer programs, location. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Understaffed, too many projects to properly handle, Lack of information and communication between disciplines. Watch out for dishonest employees. Poor office manners running rampant - profanity, political boasting, homophobic. Noisy office with non-work chatter. Poor computer file structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up some projects. Get engineers to do their jobs instead of being politicians. I encountered a lot of people trying to make me look bad so they could look good. Very pathetic. No appreciation for adding structure, creating and cleaning up drafting. Four people quit who were hired at the same time as me. I was actually glad when I was dismissed.

    Pros

    This company is a good opportunity to get started in this field of work. Management is very easy going and flexible with hours. Health compensations are great.

    Cons

    Poor management planning and scheduling. Too many managers delegating to lower managers. Computer technical, software and hardware assistance is very poor. It takes too much effort to get help on computer issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan and schedule projects more fairly to complete. Coordinate with other managers on project due dates and man power work hours.
