    I have been working at Freese and Nichols full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch almost daily, laid back atmosphere, close-knit community where everyone is friends with everyone, bosses who care, good pay, no judgement.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of a single con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Great culture
    Good pay
    Amazing people

    FNI is a wonderful place to work. While there are always some nits to pick; overall this is a really good company.

    Cons

    Advancement is pretty much confined to engineers. Understandable in the field and they are making changes to include others somewhat, but for the most part PE = boss.

    Pros

    Goal oriented, ethical, professional as well as family oriented. A fun place to work as well as given many opportunities for personal growth through courses provided.

    Cons

    Don’t really have any other than the pay scale could’ve been better for the department. I know there are budgets to follow, but showing recognition with higher raises would’ve been nice.

    Pros

    Engaging work -- If you want to be interested in what your are doing for a living, Freese and Nichols is the place.
    Nice people -- Both the SMARTEST and the NICEST people I have ever worked with.

    Not perfect, always improving. This is a company that moves deliberately, which sometimes means not fast, but they execute well.

    I worked at Freese and Nichols full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Quality for client oriented, laid back atmosphere and I really enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Thought it was a family oriented company until I got laid off after 15 years of service. No opportunity to possibly take a cut in pay.

    I have been working at Freese and Nichols full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule average benefits nothing to add here

    Cons

    Management and especially VPs become VPs not because they have experince. Engineering VPs DON'T HAVE PE licensure. THIS IS A JOKE!

    Advice to Management

    try to evaluate people according to their education and experience
