    Pros

    - Employee owned: You can purchase company stock for your 401k. Stock price has appreciated substantially year after year. - Collegial culture: People are caring, helpful and collaborative - Expert driven: Great place if you have a set of highly specialized advisory skills (from social scientist to six sigma black belt nurses, to computational geeks to environmental communication experts) that can elevate the engineering and architectural practices . Sometimes, if you bring unique credentials, the firm may even go to the extent of creating a new position just for you. You are expected to find your way and prove your value for projects by forging internal alliances.

    Cons

    - Strongly focused on yearly stock appreciation -- While it can't be argued that the firm is run in an admirable way financially speaking, leadership will cut costs (and headcount) swiftly when the numbers are trending down. You will ultimately be judged by your billable utilization -- even if you have delivered extraordinary value in other ways (e.g. internal initiatives, etc) - Uncertain career path if you are not an engineer or an architect. It's pretty much up to you to figure it out. That said, the firm allows for opportunities to move internally (e.g. between architecture and engineering)
