    I worked at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Fuss & O'Neill was a great place to start my first job. Everyone was very helpful when first starting. Most of my co-workers were very nice and professional. Wages were fair and benefits were standard.

    Cons

    There wasn't very many positions to move up to. You were pretty much stuck were you were at.

    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Interesting projects, somewhat inclusive, flexible work environment, pleasant employees

    Cons

    poor/mixed communication from management, lack of technical skills in management, lack of focus due to being so multi-disciplinary. Top heavy organization. No 401 k matching, average salary.

    Advice to Management

    Consider staying up to date on the technical aspects (for engineering managers) to provide sound advice to clients, talk to employees to see what they are working on.

    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company moving in a great direction. Corporate goals are realistic. Talented people, great projects, management is great growing rapidly. Good benefits, flexible work hours, good people, overall great place to work if you can stick it through a few years of below industry pay levels( even less than municipal/state in some instances)

    Cons

    Not enough mid level engineers to manage younger staff and allow project managers to do other tasks, almost no reward or pat on the back for doing above and beyond in projects. Pay is below industry average and don't reflect higher billing rates. Branch offices get less support from corporate than is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work, awful place to be compensated from. FO is plagued with entry level engineers and project managers, and almost no one in between. Kids out of college get there 3 years of excellent experience then move elsewhere to get better pay. rarely do people stick with through the lack of raises and compensation, which makes it tough to keep a balanced staff. Recommend promoting more from within and compensating more to keep employees for longer periods, which will build a more balanced team and create less stress on project managers.

    I have been working at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Flexible schedule and no real dress code
    Interesting people who are passionate about what they do and the company
    Have been getting more training opportunities
    Good tuition reimbursement
    Senior Management have been communicating more with employees about the company performance and plans
    Overall, a great place to work

    Cons

    There's been a lot of change over the past couple of years and some senior managers seem to be holding on to the "old way" tightly
    Practices can differ between offices and groups
    Long hours and demanding deadlines at times
    Support Services employees (Accounting, IT, Marketing, HR) are looked down upon and treated as expendable by some senior managers

    Advice to Management

    Change is okay, especially if you want to improve
    Consider that Support employees are people, too, and can have a lot of positive contributions to the company
    The focus on building a positive place to work has not gone unnoticed, keep it up.

    Pros

    Low pressure. You are paid for overtime, but no one expects you to work on the weekend or late nights. There are some talented people there.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility. Projects are not very interesting or challenging. The work is sporadic and there are slow periods. Trouble maintaining client relations in SC office.

    Advice to Management

    Need to train lower level staff in business development. Some people and departments are siloed from one another.

  10. "A close knit, medium sized company with substantial opportunities for professional development and personal growth."

    Pros

    Even young engineers are given responsibilities to help expand their work experiences. There is an education reimbursement program and usually a week of professional development at a conference relevant to your career.

    Cons

    The work mentality is to get it done in unusually short period of time at an exceptional quality, which adds to an atmosphere of stress.
