I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

ESOP! The ESOP is the greatest motivator or this company. For outsiders its hard to believe or understand that a stock program can motivate or even shape the culture of a corporation, but this one does and for the better. If you stick it out you will retire very happy.

Cons

Extremely high expectations and there can be long work weeks. Although your efforts will not go unrecognized, usually.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent with possible career paths and voice to the employees if they are on track with their plan.

    Pros

    ESOP is great. The people are fun to work with. We get chili once a year. If you love to work all the time then this is a good place.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Hours are long with no overtime. There is not much mentoring available. That is about it for the cons.

    I worked at Burns & McDonnell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employee stock plan if you last long enough to fully vest. Company growing. Better for experienced people rather than new grads. Offices are different in each city....some better than others. Diverse practice areas offer variety and ability to learn different industries.

    Cons

    Everyone too busy to mentor. Asked to take on work without appropriate training. Work cyclical and fear of layoffs too often. Vesting period too long and too much compensation is back end loaded.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better mentoring and training.
