    Professional. Good clients. Office does a good job of creating a community among employees despite us all being on separate jobsites.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded and you can work on your own schedule for the most part. There are some meetings and such that require you to be present for and deadlines, however, no one is telling you to be in by 8:00am and you can't leave before 5:00pm. Bottom line, do your work before the deadline and no one will care when or where you got it done.

    Cons

    There could be better communication within the offices on promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better within the offices, particularily with newer/less experienced personnel.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cumming full-time

    Pros

    * You will meet nice people there, has the feel of a small business (in most offices it is indeed very small)
    * Has opportunity to learn on entry level
    * Good communication between various offices which expands your knowledge

    Cons

    * Not the best in the market when it comes to pay (Average)
    * Many managers are greedy and claim your effort to themselves
    * Poor bonus structure
    * They over work you
    * The system allows managers to undercut employees hours and bill it to themselves on work they didn't do

    Advice to Management

    My advice to top Mngmt is to
    * Look closely in the billable hours office managers bill to themselves, though not deserve (Ghost billing),
    * have better, more clear, career growth structure and duration and fair targets,
    * Look at profitability and productivity is very good, done well, but looking at career growth and stability in many offices is very poor

    "Senior Cost Manager"

    Pros

    Culture is great, very social company, lots of room for career progression and opportunity. Transparent recruiting processes

    Cons

    No actual structure towards promotions, no information on salary brackets per position for example. Sink or swim mentality at times

    Advice to Management

    Create better employee performance reviews & set salary expectations per job title. This way it is easier to retain employees rather than losing to high offers in the current hot market

    Great culture, great team members, great benefits. This company is always looking for ways to improve the wellness of the team members. Recognition for your hard work is definitely there, most than any other company I've worked for.

    Cons

    Need more locations available for transfers
