I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very well organized and a lot of room to grow. The office is mostly a younger group of engineers/scientists and is an exciting place to work. Everyone is well liked by their co-workers. The demand can be high at times, but it is well understood and appreciated by the managers. Everyone has an opportunity to meet clients, bring in work, and involve themselves in business development and various professional and non-professional organizations. The management is very easy to approach and talk to and is very enjoyable to work for. Management allows its staff a large amount of responsibility with excellent guidance, but never overwhelms you with more than what you can/should be able to handle. The Pittsburgh offic has a small office appeal, with the ability of a major nationally recognized company with significant resorces. This is an excellent place to work and would suggest it to anyone.

Cons

The "Cons" are consistent with any company an individual may work for, that is to say nothing specific that you wouldn’t have from any other engineering firm.

Advice to Management

The management is doing a fantastic job with its employees. As long as they continue to compensate well and allow for such significant professional growth, there will be no problems in continuing the progression of this office.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Langan has some of the best civil, geotechnical, and environmental engineers in the country. The leaders of the firm are not only great engineers, but they are also great leaders and mentors. At Langan you will have the opportunity to work on challenging engineering projects that will impact the world. Langan is a fast-growing company with many opportunities for employees who want to take control of their careers.

    Cons

    One of Langan's core values is client responsiveness. This value sometimes results in working long hours to meet a client's construction schedule. At times I have worked 60 to 70 hour weeks to help get a project completed. That being said these long hours have never gone unrecognized. Langan works as a team to get these projects out the door so even though the hours are long, it feels good to work with your peers to accomplish a common goal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    -- They pay a premium
    -- There is no shortage of work
    -- There is plenty of client contact, which means networking possibilities are limitless

    Cons

    -- They pay a premium, but the demands placed on you typically far exceed normal human tolerances.
    -- There is no shortage of work...and it's usually expected to be completed in an unrealistic time frame
    -- Inter-discipline infighting is ridiculous. It is a dysfunctional company.
    -- How many more times are we going to change health insurance companies? They supposedly improve, with the cost being more to the employee, yet the raises we've gotten don't even cover the cost increase...,much less the cost-of-living increase.
    -- This is a top-heavy company. They need a cover letter just for the letterhead alone. Seriously, how were you promoting people in a down economy???

    Advice to Management

    We're not dumb. We understand that there is the primary bottom line of profit. But I routinely see the underlings coming in early and staying late while most, if not all of the associates, senior associates, etc. are coming in later and leaving early. You have recently preached a work/life balance...and then expect the underpaid and unappreciated underlings to sacrifice the latter half of that equation for your personal satisfaction. Ever wonder why there has been a mass exodus of mid-level employees in the last year-and-a-half with the bulk of them taking lesser-paying jobs for the shot at being able to breathe?

    Can you believe that we were supposed to be EXCITED about the acquisition of Treadwell & Rollo while they were telling us there was no money for bonuses or raises? It was a complete and utter insult and an outright slap in the face.
