    Pros

    The common comment was: It used to be a great company; today it has good ergonomics and offices.

    Cons

    It is confirmed. Having several conversations with employees at other divisions of the company I received the same comments. Secretaries rule over managers to the point that managers are fired and secretaries stay, the rest is up to your imagination, so on this perspective you can figure out what is the rest of the company. I speak for the Houston operation only, no clue of other offices.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what are you doing with Sr. Management and the empowered ladies. Some of the long term managers have to much concentrated power that will eventually ruing the company.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Positive & Negative feedback is HIGHLY encouraged. Employees track hours spent on projects as they are billable to the client, so anything over 40/week goes toward vacation. 9/80 program (optional) allows employees, over a two week period, to work 9 of 10 days, still totaling 80 hours total, taking every other friday off! However, this is a luxury, so if the project(s) need you, you're in for overtime. Very competitive salary. Training is available for specialized engineering software. Friendly work environment. Very forward thinking company. Observant of employees needs. Company is proud of their Safety record.

    Cons

    Many engineering disciplines utilize a specialized piece of software which has a heavy learning curve. Quality of work from other offices can occationally fall short of Minneapolis's standards.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the employee feedback from team leaders & management. Thank you for offering the 9/80 program. Keep up the good work.
