    I have been working at DLR Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I’m very happy here. I worked at small companies and big one. I worked at engineering firms with over 200 engineers and small ones with 20. Dlr fit right in the middle. Some of the smaller companies I been with were penny pinchers and the big ones too corporate. Great engineering leader. Lots of school project. You will learn lot dealing with the pain in the butt DSA but you will learn a lot too.

    Cons

    Some discipline seem to be very short staff and they get burned out. Dlr gotta really try harder to get more help or people will quit because they will feel like too much on their shoulders. I’ve been there and it’s not a good feeling. You going to have to look harder and maybe pay more to hire or keep staff. It’s thought finding help but if more people feel they getting burned out then they will quit. It’s going to get worse.

    Advice to Management

    Dlr is great company but you gotta actively seek help in certain discipline that are short staff. Don’t wait
