I worked at Michael Baker International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People were really friendly. The working environment is also very good so you can work with people and enjoy your daily routine everyday instead of just waiting 5 o'clock. The 401k matching benefit and the scholarship program is a bonus to me.

Cons

While the job is stable and enjoyable, the compensation is not as good as some other companies. But this is something people have to choose, I guess, between a stable with lower compensation position and a riskier with higher salary position.

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

    Pros

    Great people who care a lot about doing a great job.

    Cons

    Lowering of benefits, and pay after acquisition. The rest of the old culture is dying a slow death. New management is focused on their processes and does not understand the underlying business.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a slave to your own processes. Your employees are your primary asset, treat them that way.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Offices all over the country, if you know the right person, you can advance your career

    Cons

    Too many changes in the past couple of years; has become far too political, acquiring too many firms and focusing on romancing those companies but forgetting about their own, CEO was let go in December, hundreds of employees losing their jobs, discussion of being purchased, pay is not very competetive, poor communication from corporate office

    Advice to Management

    Cut the politics and stop being Pittsburgh-centric
