    Volkert culture encourages poor working conditions

    Civil Engineer Intern (Former Employee) Mobile, AL

    ProsPay is at market value, plus supposedly decent annual raises (no bonuses companywide). Paid overtime.

    ConsLong hours encouraged; typical 50-60 hour weeks. Encouraged to work on holidays. Draconian IT department. Employees required to travel frequently, and encouraged to work out of state and relocate. High turnover, particularly for engineer interns and entry-level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in long-term employees at the intern level, rather than hiring for specific projects.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unfulfilling

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Mobile, AL

    ProsDecent pay and work schedule. They gave you a job to perform and allowed you to do your work without Micromanaging.

    ConsSenior Management is a joke. You never even spoke to the people who you worked for. Company was constantly in litigation for their work. They are very set in their ways and did not keep up with industry trends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company needs to be more forward thinking. They have an extremely old Senior Management Team who is completely out of sync with their workers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLeadership engaged and supportive, great projects, competitive pay, honest and fair, projects are very high profile, not a sweatshop, business oriented

    ConsA little old school, technology is somewhat dated, a bigger firm that operates like a smaller firm sometimes, training limited

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course and make sure that you don't lose the personal touch that comes with size and economy thanks

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
