Pros

Burgess & Niple offers outstanding benefits packages. They encourage recruitment of senior level talent by including previous career experience as years of seniority (for determination of benefits). If you have 10 years in a field at another company, your benefits are computed as though you had 10 years at Burgess & Niple.

Cons

Senior leadership team sometimes comes across at an "old boys club." Although senior leadership is very progressive, there is a definite prejudice against younger (under 50) talent. Promotion from within does not seem to be a priority. There is little to no succession planning for retiring staff and rather than develop internal staff for succession, the company will look outside for talent.

Advice to Management

Failure to promote from within reflects a failure of the company. Either failing to hire promotable individuals at the start or a failure to develop the talent within the company.

    I worked at Burgess & Niple full-time

    Pros

    Diverse work both public and private and a nice mix of small and large projects. The firm had a good reputation and the office was nice. Standard benefits.

    Cons

    Chaotic management coming from corporate where there was some detachment about what was really going on. Was my first job from college and the training program was less than what was promised. They tried to overburden their employees and didn't offer enough support. Was a team environment but did very little team building.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in training and retaining young talent. Do team building to improve efficiency, encourage advancement, and build loyalty and consistency.
