    I worked at SCS Engineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many companies out there believe all employees should share in the success of the company. This one does. I wish more companies would have the same attitude. They do great work and have a sense of family.

    Cons

    Hmm...Can't really think of one because overall the benefits were really good. I guess I could complain that they don't pay 100% medical, but again, being employee-owned made up for that.

    I have been working at SCS Engineers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are a mix of knowledge-leaders and creative, smart engineers that work hard to make their projects successful. The staff walk the talk too. If you're willing to commit yourself to being the best, this is the place to be. Very friendly, professional atmosphere and culture. Knowledge and experience blended with new technologies and new solutions.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to give 110%, don't work with self-starters and over-achievers.

    I have been working at SCS Engineers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked with this company for just about 2 years, and overall it has been an awesome experience. The engineers and staff are extremely professional, excellent in what they do, and truly some of the greatest people I know. Working for this great company has opened up so many doors and opportunities for me, I have had incredible opportunities to dive into several areas that make up this type of engineering. Overall, this is a great company to work for. SCS works very hard to get the job done, but it isn't one of those companies that consumes your life. I am enjoying everything I do, and will continue to look and move forward with such a great company.

    Cons

    Not much travel involved. Not involved in seeking work or preparing my own proposals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You have done an incredible job building this company and I am excited to see where we grow from here.

    Make the umbrella of SCS more inclusive instead of PC's just looking out individually

    I have been working at SCS Engineers part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They do not hire and fire quickly. ESOP. Annual bonuses if office maintains at least a 4 percent profit. Lots of flexibility in working from home.

    Cons

    After 10 years was put on part time. Very top heavy. Very little room for growth. Poor marketing skills. Does not send employees to training very often.

    Advice to Management

    Look at each individual before making changes to the employee (i.e. full time to part time).

    Pros

    Great core competencies, and the companies work ethic and culture really make this a place that is desirable. They are leaders in their field of Solid Waste and are not afraid to test new markets or industries to help with the growth of this firm.

    Cons

    Old school mentality, afraid to change, seems like every department and group are out for themselves and what they can do to better themselves without understanding all groups and divisions and what is needed to fully create a well rounded successful working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Allow specialists in areas room to grow and give them tools necessary to do so
