    Pros

    Excellent jumping off point for graduate to mid-level engineers and technicians looking for a resume builder. BJ has a very "hands on" training approach that has proven to be invaluable when compared to other engineers in the same field. The BJ culture is a very practical one, in which the wheel is not re-invented over and over again. The opportunity for advancement is there with a little elbow grease...

    Cons

    Management is often not aware or concerned with the needs of its personnel. The dis-connect between the two can be horrific at times. Engineers are typically overworked due to excessive travel and less than stellar recruiting of graduate level engineers. Early "burn-out" is often an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Management is far too disconnected from personnel needs.


  2. "Company in transition"

    Pros

    Normal working hours for the most part. Good health benefits, decent 401(k) matching.

    Cons

    Management style is dictatorial, based on tearing employees down.

    Advice to Management

    You get catch more bees with honey than with vinegar. Build employees up, offer cost of living wage increases, pay bonuses to employees other than top management.
