    I have been working at Alfred Benesch & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Benesch for almost 20 years and have no regrets with starting here as a designer and working my way into management. There are many opportunities for employees to advance and the compensation and benefits are excellent. There is the ability to work on unique projects through work sharing between offices and a lot of technical resources company wide. If you have a problem you can't figure out, chances are there is someone within the company who can.

    Cons

    There are no major cons. Not everything is perfect, but it is pretty good and not worth complaining.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the slow and steady growth. Our path has been bright the past five plus years and we need to continue that positive momentum.

    Benesch is a place that encourages you to develop as professional and never holds anyone back from reaching their potential! Exciting projects and always looking for new opportunities.

    Cons

    I have been with company for almost 20 years and have no cons that aren't different than what one may find at all firms. Be real no place is perfect.

    I have been working at Alfred Benesch & Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is successful and growing. Employees are compensated nicely for their work and the benefits are very nice. The company has a number of programs that show they care about keeping employees happy such as a wellness, flextime, bank time and community giving program.

    Cons

    There is a telecommuting program, but it is not fully developed in each location - so not promoted for employees.

    Keep making decisions based on employee and client happiness and things should continue to be great!
