    I have been working at Michael Baker International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and good opportunities to work on many different types of projects in many different locations.

    Cons

    Very corporate. People are treated like a number. It is a socialist type environment more like a government job than a private corporation. There is a lot of overhead with a lot of upper management that seems to slow things down and kill efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fluff. Let engineers be engineers and accountants be accountants. Eliminate the requirement of filling out mountains of paperwork for every job no matter the size. Most of it requires inputting the same information in multiple places. This is not efficient.
