I worked at Gannett Fleming full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good salary and benefits. Signing bonus. Professional work environment. Flexible 40-hour work week. Nice office. Good IT support. Supportive co-workers.

Cons

Lack of billable work. Penny pinching over minor items. Lack of communication between staff and management. Lack of available training and skill development. Our small office seemed to be off grid in relation to the main offices. Our managers attempted to keep corporate status quo even in such a small office, ex. keeping larger unused window offices empty.

Advice to Management

Keep tighter reign on employee performance and billability. Once a year reviews don't cut it. When employees want training to enhance skills they mean it. They are not just saying it to impress you. If company isn't getting selected on bids don't just respond by putting your head in the sand and keeping employees out of meetings.

    Pros

    My supervisor provides helpful guidance but is not overly involved with my everyday work. He trusts me to carry out my job and has confidence in my abilities.

    Cons

    In it is not a particularly inspiring place to work, but then again if I wanted inspiration, I probably should have gone into something other than consulting!

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should take notice and learn from some of the really talented regional managers. I believe my boss is exceptional and deserves to be promoted through the ranks.

    Pros

    Had done 5-6 jobs before joining them. They have a very good team of C# and Java Developers. Lot of ideas and nice synchronization among teams. Technologies ideas keep floating around and you are given enough liberty to persuade them. With the senior technical management channeling them and keep the team focused. Was allowed to be creative had a great time working there.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the lost a lot of commercial market for their products as their marketing team is not that competitive and when I had to leave they started too much interference with the development efforts making the products shitty and further loosing the market in a viscous circle. If not for them this place could have been another Google success story.

    Advice to Management

    Get better marketing people you have something really world class and the big thing over there is your team. Trust in them.
