"Very rewarding company, with challenging projects"

Current Employee - Staff Engineer III in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Staff Engineer III in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Excellent training, good benefits, mentoring is always there. It is a well managed firm that is proud of the talent at the staff and senior staff levels.

Cons

Biggest thing with this company right now is the disparity in the numbers of upper management and staff. There really is no project engineer type roles anymore. You're either in the field or your not. Not much balance.

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

    Pros

    1. If you are in the right group, you can work on some cool projects.
    2. Some talented and nice people to work with.
    3.They work you really hard, So when you leave, you will be burned out but you will know your self much better :-).

    Cons

    1. A lot of groups are inefficient. You will spend a lot of time in meetings yet when you go back to your desk you will still need to figure things out by yourself. No team spirit. You will get thrown under the bus by your boss, colleagues, most admins, accounting, the cleaning ladies.......
    2. Work life balance is non-existent. After working 60-80 hrs a week, you will spend the remaining precious time on weekend conferences, dinners and picnics.
    3. Staff and Senior staff shoulders a lot of responsibility. Accounting and IT was subpar. Be ready to spend time fixing and being blamed for their mistakes.
    4. Bonuses and promotions go to favored few. No clear cut vision for career growth. As somebody else posted before good looks, good talk, who knows?
    5. Company encourages "shark mentality". If you are a nice soft personality, find someplace else to work.
    6. Brown nosing is rampant. If you are good at it, you will be happy at Langan.
    7. A lot of new hires, during my tenure at Langan, lasted from a week to a month. Few packed their belongings during holidays and were never heard from again. A lot of people have left in last 2-2.5 years.
    8. Extremely top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    None. They know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Good work environment with a group of highly qualified staff. Work is steady and there is good camaraderie among employees. The in-house seminar are usually always helpful and informative.

    Cons

    -Subpar bonuses considering billing rates
    -Subpar 401k Match
    -No 401k profit sharing program
    -Subpar salaries considering billing rates
    -Lack of direction occasionally
    -Below average vacation time

    Advice to Management

    Pay fair mkt. value and reward employees for exceptional work. Some employees are more valuable than others even at same staff level, and bonuses should reflect this. Considering the billing rates, the bonuses are quite paltry. Where does all this money go? Either it goes to a few people or the company is operating extremely inefficiently. Appreciation goes a long way for morale, otherwise, good employees will continue to seek opportunities where they are appreciated and not viewed as drones.
