    I worked at Carollo Engineers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn and move up the chain.

    Cons

    Once you move up the workload increases immensely, and the support from upper management disappears.

    Advice to Management

    Work on providing the people that do the work resources to become less stressed. Sometimes throwing people at the problem doesn't help, more times than not the authority to say no will be something that should needed.

    Pros

    Focus and passion directed exclusively toward water and collegial culture creates a great work environment. Commitment to technical leadership and innovation make it a challenging and exciting place to work.

    Cons

    If you are not interested in water, this is not the firm for you. Expectations are high in terms of quality and commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the current focus on employee engagement and development and client service.

    I have been working at Carollo Engineers (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best professional staff I have worked with in over 15 years. Knowledgeable support staff, from juniors to seniors and management. The CEO is a smart, well spoken and motivational. Benefits and perks of the job are great. I look forward to coming into work on Mondays. Flexible work / home life balance. Real potential for growth opportunities in w/ww engineering are here.

    Cons

    The office is located in a busy commercial district, not ideal to my own commute. Free-for-all type of feel to certain aspects of business development, not uncommon within the industry.

    Advice to Management

    No constructive criticism to management, obviously challenges come and go on a constant basis. Provide advanced visibility of incoming work and deadlines.

    I have been working at Carollo Engineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Carollo is respected as one of the great water/wastewater firms in the nation so there's a feeling of pride within the company for the creative and responsive solutions we deliver to clients.

    Most projects are challenging but are also very rewarding, both personally (salaries are good) and professionally (work is fun).

    Cons

    Frequent traveling at all levels is sometimes required, but not everyone needs to do it. It depends heavily on your expertise and/or willingness.

    Also, it seems disadvantageous to begin your career at the company versus joining after some years of experience. It can result in big gaps in position and/or pay; notwithstanding this is probably normal of all companies in all industries.

    Advice to Management

    Management has recently undergone a large organizational tune-up (within 5 years). This has proven to be a healthy path forward to increase transparency and employee engagement. My only advice is to continue listening to the employees and those who have dedicated and continue to dedicate a large portion of their lives to their work here at Carollo.

    I have been working at Carollo Engineers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well respected firm with a long history. Focus on water engineering attracts top industry talent and amazing people to learn from and work with. There are multiple career paths available to those with strong technical or client service skills or both. There are opportunities to contribute to a variety of project types: infrastructure, process, water reuse/resources, research, etc.

    Compensation is fair. Good benefits. Great culture. I really enjoy the people I work with. Local offices sponsor activities outside office hours: happy hours, holiday parties, picnics, sporting events.

    Cons

    Not many. More praise and encouragement could be given to non-engineering staff.

    Work life balance can be achieved but employees often need to advocate for them selves to not take on too many projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in and mentor the next generation of leaders.

    Pros

    Coworkers are like family, great working environment, & management really cares about employees' well-being.

    Cons

    Need to work long hours to meet the project deadlines at times. Limited career opportunities for non-engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Each employee deserves respect. People first, then money.
