    I worked at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You will never get fired from CRA, there is such a passive aggressive atmosphere that no one would dare to rock the boat by firing an employee that has earned it. So there is great job security. Very safety oriented firm.

    Cons

    You must be in the right place at the right time to advance. Regardless of the time, effort or quality of work you put in, unless you have a supervisor who is genuinely interested in mentoring you to advancement, you will remain stagnant in whatever pigeon hole you started in. Normal advancement at CRA requires seniority, not talent.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves, and move some of the work down to your junior levels. The company will never succeed if you do not train up the juniors as the future management.

    Lots of younger people who are all in the same boat. Large variety of work.

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee owned. Smart, hard working people. Not top heavy. If you can't cut it you won't last. Your experience there is what you make of it. If you want to work a lot of hours and advance, you can. If you want to work 9-5 and spend time with family and friends, you can.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits could be better. Yearly bonus is very small. Sometimes you get pigeon-holed with the kind of work that you do. There are very specific work groups and sometimes it's hard to cross over.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be such a white boys' club. Get more women and some color up in there. Give more outside of hte Principal and Associate levels the opportunity to be stakeholders. Peolple care more about a company when they own a piece of it.

    Pros

    Generally better pay compared to similar companies. I liked the people I worked with every day. Generally, there is a good work-life balance as well.

    Cons

    You didn't have much of a say in anything. If they want you to work on THIS project, not THAT one, you're stuck. Also, many have said that advancement opportunities are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Allow opportunities for advancement and be more flexible in general.

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance (with right supervisor). Provides training in variety of subjects. Flexible schedule for salary employees (again, with right supervisor).

    Cons

    Pay is low for the industry. Benefits have declined significantly. Definitely a difference in treatment and expecations for female professionals. Promotions are difficult and favortism is definitely an issue. Management is not inspiring and they don't really understand how to manage a company and motivate employees.

    Advice to Management

    To keep smart, high-performing individuals, you may want to give them more opportunities and push them up the ladder faster rather than letting them remain stagnent and then have them quit. The reason there are so many poor managers in the company is because all of the good employees have left.
