I have been working at BCRA Design full-time (More than 10 years)
Great work life balance, they try hard to take into consideration personal life. Staff seems very highly engaged, especially over the last 4-5 years. Very different leadership approach than before. Much more transparency. HR is amazingly, very accessible, helps leadership stay connected to needs of staff. They have done a very good job of hiring young, diverse talent. Culture is very evident, many good ways to plug in, people very very connected through what they call Skittle pods, everyone belongs to a pod and we do activities as a pod, to get to know each other better. Emphasis on serving our communities.
More of an industry challenge, finding good experienced staff with 8-10 years of experience. They are very open about still developing their core purposes in the work they do.
Advice to Management
Keep hanging in there with the new direction
I applied online. I interviewed at BCRA Design.
The interview was extremely hostile. It was done by the HR person who had no experience in engineering whatsoever. I could tell this interview was just a formality because they had an internal candidate in mind before I was interviewed. After the interview, the HR person wrote me a nasty email telling me I did not belong in the engineering profession. It was like being in front of your probation officer.
