    I worked at Dudek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dudek has a great company culture. Everyone is super collaborative and willing to help explain a given project/problem.

    Cons

    We ran out of available work after we did not win project proposals. The tenuousness of my position was not communicated to me.

    I worked at Dudek (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyable and fast paced working environment. Very interesting work.

    Cons

    Nothing in particular; the beach is just outside the workplace windows.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I felt cared for at this workplace; and that my ideas and opinions really mattered.

    Pros

    OMG! This place is awesome. The CEO actually cares! The people CARE about you, work, doing a good job and the best is that people want to work as a team! IT is so fun. I feel like it is not even like working. I love it!! Everyone is equal here. It is like everyone is just as valuable as everyone else. It feels awesome! You should be a self starter to work here.

    Cons

    nothing. I worked at another office and this place is sooooooo much better.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up

    I have been working at Dudek full-time

    Pros

    Great employee benefits. They'll pay for your health insurance and heavily subsidize the cost of insuring family members. They'll give you an HRA to even further reduce your medical costs. They'll match your 401K generously. They'll increase your weeks of vacation time the longer you are with the company. They'll give you ESOP shares every year. They'll give you generous bonuses twice annually (tied to company profitably, but they are ALWAYS highly profitable).

    Pay is amazing. They pay everyone, even support staff working in traditionally low-paying roles, well above industry standards.

    Employees are friendly and professional. Most folks are a bit older and further along in their careers, but the company has been recently bringing in a bit of new blood (smart twenty-somethings) that are refreshing and fun to work with.

    CEO, VP, CFO, etc. are all warm, wonderful, friendly people who you can chat and laugh with. No pretensions here. Upper management are all-stars who work hard and lead through example. They truly care about all of their employees and show that on a daily basis.

    Encinitas office is right on the beach. One of the most beautiful locations I have ever worked in.

    If you get a position at this company, it is like winning the lottery. Take it. It is one of the best career moves you will ever make.

    Cons

    None to report. They should keep up the good work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work. Your employees are so grateful.

    I worked at Dudek full-time

    Pros

    I worked for Dudek for 5 years and they are seriously one of the best companies to work for in San Diego. They treat their employees very well and want them to have a good work/home life balance.

    I have started my own company and some day would like to be able to offer the same company culture to my employees.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They re eger and can quickly get help to you in the field. The administration support at corporate was great.

    Cons

    The field management (contact from corporate to field) was not too good. THey were mainly looking out for the company and the employee..."What is an employee? Oh, the people that keep us in the contract...well, it was just a business decision." (previous was a compendium of bad comments related to employees I'd heard over the course of working for them on a project in California)
    Communication was terrible from management to field crews.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your people...support them fully...be sure you let them know the status of jobs and what you've promised to do - gotta follow through.

    I worked at Dudek full-time

    Pros

    This is a laid back company that offers flexibility, great health benefits, decent pay, variety of clients / projects, and on the most part good people.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement (to advance it was based on politics rather than knowledge/talent). The company is top heavy..,meaning more managers securing the work rather than people to actually do the work.
