Featured Review

Current Employee - Civil Designer

I have been working at DOWL full-time for more than a year

Pros

Autonomy, Opportunity, Engagement, Mentorship, Benefits, flexible schedule

Cons

New office, turnover, slow software adoption, city commute, company merge issues

Advice to Management

Management has great attitude towards employees. Advice: pay closer attention to employee concerns about software issues. It's hard to come to a work place knowing you're going to encounter random... software bugs. Please get BlueBeam PDF. Also, I would recommend hiring a CAD Manager to handle all of the details and standards. Because City communiting is dreadful and expensive, I would also see if there is possibility for part-time work-from-home options.
