    I have been working at Clark Nexsen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great growing and progressive company, management is very good at resourcing employees and encouraging professional development.

    Cons

    Work is siloed between departments, so interdisciplinary projects can struggle with communication.

    I have been working at Clark Nexsen full-time

    Pros

    Because Clark Nexsen has a wide variety of clients, it is easy to network with the clients and people from other companies as well as within Clark Nexsen.

    Cons

    The Macon Branch is still a small branch of the bigger company (based out of VA) and does not have things like an HR department or IT department in Macon.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice better training for new employees. A lot of skills on the job are learned through making mistakes and asking others. it would be helpful to have a training program for things like drawing standards that wouldn't be taught in School and would otherwise have to be learned as it comes up on the job.

    I have been working at Clark Nexsen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting contracts to work on

    Cons

    Pay does not reflect experience or workload. Management will not listen to how and what it will take to get a job done and expect others to work 16+ hour days to get the job done. If you do not work the hours then you are reprimanded. Management treats employees as numbers, not people, and when they actually talk to people they talk down to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and treat them with respect.

    Move on to other companies. Seek your own new opportunities and make way for fresh, new talent from within and outside the company help shake the stagnant, "old-boy's club" that makes up the top tier BOD incumbents.

    Pros

    Fun people and nice projects if you are one of the chosen ones.

    Cons

    Peter Aranyi is the worst PIC ever. Does not know how to get out the way and allow people to grow professionally. The most fake person I have encountered in my life. Cut benefits to pay top management. No respect.

    Advice to Management

    Get Peter off the Board.

    No growth for minorities in company management or ownership

    Advice to Management

    Work there for several years and noticed NO minority PM's, Managers, or Shareholders. Company only seems to promote based on race.
