    Pros

    Bartlett & West has been the best company I have ever worked for. I was not only an employee. I was an employee-owner.

    Cons

    The only downside was the commute from Coppell to Fort Worth. There are no downsides if you live near Fort Worth.

    I have been working at Bartlett & West full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and an involved team. It's a laid back environment that really wants to treat the employees well. It is employee owned, so your success has a direct effect on the success of the company and vice-versa (which can also be a con if either you or the company performs poorly).

    Cons

    Still trying to transition from being a much smaller company and they don't have standards set for everything which makes it kind of tough on new comers. Pay is a bit lower than average for most positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting communication between employees and management. Try to organize training a bit more and make it easier for new hires to adjust.

    "Overextended"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bartlett & West full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management tried to make a big company out of a solid medium sized company. Way overestimated revenues and future contracts. Suffering for it.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Bartlett & West full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. Company values work/life balance and encourages time away from the office, going so far as to have mental health days available for use.

    Cons

    Below average salary, but the benefits outweigh that.

    Pros

    Steady employment, good work atmosphere, great hours and flexibility

    Cons

    Low career growth, politics are heavy within this company, secrets everywhere, and not individual friendy.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries, provide career growth, and advancement.

    I have been working at Bartlett & West full-time

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities (to an extent)
    Newly renovated campus in Topeka
    Telecommute available to some
    Mostly colleagues are nice and easy to get along with

    Cons

    Despite being "Employee Owned", only project managers and up get the VIP ownership treatment
    Be prepared to give up reasonable 401K contributions in lieu of a VERY MODEST stock equity program
    Management continually promises that everybody will retire millionaires. WIth the reluctance to grow and poor management of all sizes of projects, this isn't even remotely possible
    Non-competitive pay

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth

    I worked at Bartlett & West full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Atmosphere, Culture, Co-workers, common ground, positive attitude, great starter job

    Cons

    Low pay, low growth, isolation, minimal skills learned, lack of time to develop in career.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about your employees (all of them, not just a couple here and there). If opportunities are given to others and the rest are ignored, eventually the ignored will lose interest, feel useless and move on.
