No opinion of CEO

Pros

Cool projects - when I worked there we had some of the more interesting structural engineering projects to work on.

Cons

The people "running" the place (which is about 45% of the company) are unbelievably inept. It is clear that they hate engineering and love to pretend they are something else...business people I guess. But they're awful at that.

Advice to Management

I offer no advice, I believe you are all very happy with yourselves and that's good for you. Congrats on that.

    A great bunch of incredibly bright and talented guys and girls who work hard to please their customers
    A variety of interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    Little respect is given by the management team to junior colleagues

    Advice to Management

    Break down the old fashioned chain of command structure and give staff authority to make decisions.
    Treat everyone equally and don't have 'Favourites' who receive preferential treatment

    Professional Development could improve, especially related to Business Development
