    Pros

    They offer an amazing opportunity for progression in the field. Supervisors are extremely willing to mentor and assist in the development of their employees, and there are incredible opportunities to gain further knowledge and become a functional working unit with your co-workers.

    Cons

    There are times when it is necessary to work long hours or come in on the weekends to ensure the success of an ongoing project.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management does a fantastic job of acclimating new employees to the company as well as mentoring those who are new to the field. P

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Excellent culture. Caring employees.

    As an intern I was a part of a management change. This change could have been smoother, though I understand it is tough for management and employees to adjust to change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Have the same expectation for employees who have been with the firm for an extensive period of time as you do for newer employees. Some long term employees are very comfortable and are not expected to perform the same as those who are newer to the firm.
