    I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally a great place to work. Senior staff take the time to help develop in your career if asked. ESOP is incredible benificial if you can stick around for a minimum of 6 years.

    Cons

    Location. Physically the HQ is located in one of the most undesirable cities in america (Kansas City, MO) which major issue in recruitment. Regional officies often have no clue of company policy and don't check in unless they run into a problem (usually 4PM Friday:) ). I would like to see a better movement to telecomuting (although this is a issue across industry).

    Advice to Management

    Provide better understanding of how to move up the corporate latter or even side step to other Global Practices.

    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.
