    Pros

    Company has good benefits, perks and keeps everyone in the know for structural projects. They are very big on embracing technology.

    Cons

    The PLC-MEP group has no idea what they are doing. To say the group is in pure chaos is an under statement for how things are run and there are questionable ethical practices going on. The group will tell you one thing in the interview and change their mind of what your job description is once you start. Unless you are structural, just walk away.
