    Pros

    The majority of the staff is professional and motivated to work. There are some excellent engineers at this firm that I felt lucky to have worked with.

    Cons

    Unless you have a manager that is willing to champion your development as an engineer, you will be relegated to engineering grunt work no matter how many years of experience you have. If you are not at the main office, career opportunities are slim. Pay is not commensurate with experience, especially if you are female.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your horizons beyond Houston. Engage your employees, not just the firm principals in discussions about advancing the company.

    Pros

    Pay is great. I don't feel like a number. I have the opportunity to do alot of things versus one thing everyday all day

    Cons

    I dont have any cons about my job yet, I guess I haven't been there long enough for that experience. So far its great. This company also doesn't match for 401k.

    Advice to Management

    I guess provide better ice cream for employee birthdays. I don't think I can take another scoop of freezer burnt ice cream.

    Pros

    The company has excellent training program and career path for engineers. This company offered some of the best benefit package that I've come across. I've worked with some of the smartest engineers I've know and they do excellent work that you can be proud of. I never heard of anything bad from clients or people who had interacted with the engineers. It's always good to work with a company with great reputation.

    Cons

    The excellent training program and career path are for engineers only. As a business development coordinator, your only career path is a senior business development coordinator with 20 years of experience. There is no career path for the coordinators and there is no overlap with marketing so you can't even cross that bridge to move up. There is a lot of corporate politics going on between the corporate office and branch offices as well as different organizations within the company. Corporate marketing is unresponsive and for lack of better word, incompetent. If you're looking for marketing support, you will be very disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Create a career path for the coordinators to move into a business development manager, business development director, creative director, or regional manager to retain talented coordinator. Possibly create a bridge between corp marketing and business development so they can move up from there.

    Tom does not listen to both sides of the story.

    You will continue to lose great people if you keep listening to those that have no backbone.
