Pros

Multi-disciplinary environment, and numerous offices around the Northeast, ensures that there is a fair amount of diversity in the types of projects you work on and the overall career path, if that is what you are looking for. Attacts generally good people, as employees.

Cons

As in most civil engineering companies, pay levels are structured so that you are just comfortable enough to get by, but that's it. Unfortunately, it is difficult to significantly increase your pay from year-to-year without either being promoted to management or threatening to leave. Also, when profits are perceived to decline (as they do from time to time), staff training is generally the first thing to be cut. This is costly to both employer and employee.

Advice to Management

Although there have been improvements in recent years, I would advise that you try a little harder to be on the cutting edge of civil engineering technology and innovation, rather than stick with the same outdated playbooks.

    I have been working at Pennoni Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -Casual workplace environment
    -Good co-workers

    Cons

    -Below average salaries
    -Hefty amounts of overtime
    -Little room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your junior staff and help them grow and advance in the company. It's no wonder employees keep leaving and turnover rates are high. Take care of your employees and stop cutting cost of employing more staff by making current personal work 60+ hrs.
