I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Paid benefits, matching 401K, outstanding training and mentoring programs, motivated employees, interesting projects, friendly atmosphere, top notch equipment, incredible coffee and tea selection (free), free breakfast two days per week. What's not to like?

Cons

It takes a special kind of person to succeed at Langan. If you aren't used to cranking full throttle 100% of the time, you will not succeed. You can certainly exist and collect a paycheck, but you will not SUCCEED. We work hard so we can play hard. It's not really a con, but a reality.

Advice to Management

Find more one on one time with your subordinates. Take them out for a beer or a quick lunch. You’d be surprised how motivating that is. A little one on one time works wonders for morale. You can tell when a colleague is stressed out. Take them out for a quick breather.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time

    Pros

    This company gives a lot of responsibility to younger staff. You will be challenged and expected to work hard. They give out bonuses and when times are good (NOT the last 5+ years...) you can make out pretty well. Other firms don't share the wealth like Langan does.

    Cons

    There may be field assignments that are far, long and boring. You may feel like you're out there on your own. You may have to work weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Involve the younger staff in more than just the work - business development, partnerships, and other discussions could benefit from a diverse conversation.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work environment, great staff, very supportive upper management. You can make your own future here. Pays very well compared to peers, particularly in terms of bonuses.

    Cons

    Struggles with work-life balance and retention, particularly with the younger generation that doesn't seem to want to stick with one company long. Overall senior management does well but one of the negatives of recruiting the best and the brightest and providing a tremendous amount of training is that former employees generally find it very easy to find other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay is good and bonues are important. The social aspects need to be improved. It made sense to stop some social activities during the recession but now we really need to go all out again with golf outings, christmas parties, etc. Teamwork and loyalty is what helps keep people here. We are rampng back up but we're not there yet.
