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

    Pros

    Very low turnover rate (less than 4%), pay for performance compensation structure, ESOP, excellent management, community involvement, steady organic growth and career development/opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    This is not an easy place to work...but it is the best place to work. It's a challenging, engaging company that has high standards. My guess is that many people who have poor reviews on glassdoor are the ones that either didn't make it or were low performers that didn't get the bonus they were 'entitled' to.

    Advice to Management

    To be able to recruit top female talent in the engineering world, we need to have flex hours or the ability to telecommute. Some offices have this option, and we are getting there as an overall company, but it is taking longer than I prefer.

    I have been working at Burns & McDonnell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The ESOP is great. No other company can match it.

    Cons

    Reverting to 1980s dress code like their WHQ.
    No flexible work schedule (9/80 or 4/10).
    Horrible work/life balance if you plan on meeting schedules. As long as you do that they don't care. They say they do but nothing is done.
    Only worried about making $ not the employees.

    Advice to Management

    FLEXIBLE WORK SCHEDULE.
