    Pros

    The company has good benefits, fair pay, and try to keep the employees inform on what is happening with the company.

    Cons

    As a engineer, you are always on call with the construction team and there seems to be a double standard for some people at the office


  3. Project, Process, Packaging Engineer

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule when it can be worked around projects

    Cons

    Not compensated for the amount of travel and hours put in. The company does not show appreciation for the people out in the field doing the work. Work life balance is difficult.

    Pros

    The salary is good and there are many individuals that are good to work with

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel. Away from home much of the time. The pressure from upper management is enormous and your evaluation from the upper management seems to be completely off base from the reality of how you have done for the company. They seem to have a culture that you either fit into or you don't. Its hard to stay in good graces with your superiors. They also have no problem just letting you go with no real explainable reason f after having given a strong impression that you are and will be a part of the team for years to come. I've worked with them 2 times, 12 years apart and the end of my career with them was in the same fashion leaving me lost for why I'm no longer desired.

    Advice to Management

    See above

    Pros

    Great projects with ample budgets. Big on training/continuing education experiences. Very supportive of local community. Above average salary.

    Cons

    Construction is very much the favorite child - their bonuses reflect that vs. paltry bonuses for design staff. Management social interaction seems "forced." Because they are large, you can get pigeonhole d into a particular role.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up and really get to know the people that work for you.

    Pros

    Synergy of project teams, the ability to work hand in hand with construction side of Design-Build for all types of clients, quick design-construction turn around so the amount of experience you get is 3 times that of design only firms. You get rewarded for doing a good job.

    Cons

    Hard to attract talented architects into design build because of old stereotypes of design-build. Rollout of cutting edge technology was not well thought out by leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for those who want more responsibility and give it to them - title and pay. Utilize A-E leadership to win Healthcare jobs leaving the construction folks at office until client asks for them. If you don't have that AE leadership, higher them, or stop chasing these projects.

    Pros

    Very collaborative work environment, management is transparent and cares. Company is responsive to outside environment and making good changes. Working hard to grow the business. Pay is good to excellent. Recent decision to add everyone to the bonus plan was great. Nice work environment.

    Cons

    Still not good at employee reviews. Not always sure where you stand. Some old-timers resist change. Still need to work harder balancin design and construction but getting much better.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive pushing change and promoting younger people.
