    Pros

    They take great care of their employees and everyone is very helpful and friendly. I really like working here

    Cons

    Some of the managers are not very good. My personal manager is about the worst that I've ever worked for. I wish we had a better manager.

    Advice to Management

    Get insite from regular employees instead of just talking to managers. Many times the managers that aren't very popular with their department won't get real opinions

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good staff, Good Wages (although annual "merit" raises are a joke) and in a good location.

    Cons

    Some of the mid-level management leaves much to be desired. Not all, but some seem to only be concerned with themselves and not the team that makes them shine.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house w/ the management team. Too many mid-levels that are not interested in improving processes, or making Contech a pleasant working environment.

    Great company culture where team work is strongly promoted. Comfortable work space. Great boss. Employees are valued for their efforts.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets tedious to find the correct information when there are so many offices and plants all over the nation.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice work environment with very helpful co-workers. People are always willing to help with whatever task you inquire about.

    Cons

    I am only with the company for a couple months so I cannot see too much that would counted as a con. I would say from what I read in the other reviews the cons seem to be accurate.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented people, flexible work schedules, plenty of development opportunity, excellent benefit programs and competitive pay in a safe culture with dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Lean times and recession tightened the belt for the company over the last 5 years creating heavier work loads for employees and anxiety regarding the company's financial security. As a result morale is still suffering.

    Advice to Management

    You have gotten the company through the most difficult times but keep weathering what's left of the storm! Employees want to hear regularly from Management so even if the news is bad - deliver it.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constant opportunity to learn. Flexibility in managing day to day responsibilities. Our engineers are some of the smartest people I have worked with. Our products are used worldwide and help solve many infrastructure and ecological challenges. People I work with like what they are working on - they are dedicated professionals. For most part benefits and pay are competitive.

    Cons

    Little constrained by resources. Sometimes don't get enough information about how we are doing as a company. Because of market a lot of change has been necessary and sometimes a bit much to absorb.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money wisely and where necessary

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wide range of areas of work: (Wastewater and stormwater treatment, retaining walls, piping, infiltration systems, precast bridges) The travel is not bad and most projects are located within a 25 mile radius.

    Cons

    Low pay. Lots of free engineering and takeoffs are done for clients; however, the company is not compensated for this, unless a Contech product is incorporated into the design.

    Advice to Management

    Reward Employees more
