    Pros

    Growth Opportunities, Learning Environment

    Every company has cons. Gannett Fleming has very few and none worth listing here.

    Pros

    Pro-Women. They really try to treat women equally on all levels - positions, salary, respect, etc. I say try because there are still people everywhere who are sexist but this company stops it in its tracks once discovered.

    Cons

    I can't honestly think of any. There is a lot of paperwork but it is necessary to be ISO 2015 compliant.

  3. "Good company"

    Pros

    This farm is growing and I would like to encourage others to be a part of this organization. Salary is ok but the quality, team game, and overall management are quite impressive! No fixed office time will make you more productive.

    Cons

    Gannett Fleming should hire more qualified internationals and should take initiative to keep them for a longer period of time to achieve a long-term goal.

    I worked at Gannett Fleming full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible Schedules
    - Great Mentors who cared about my career development and made me the person I am today.
    - A great place to cut your teeth early in your career. I talked to a lot of people who started at GF before heading elsewhere to do great things in the industry.
    - Steady not much turn over at least where I worked. A lot of people there have been there for many years.

    Cons

    - Advancement, with being in a large department, moving up will take a long time and that might not be the right firm for everyone. You may have to move on to move up.
    - As with any company, there are cases where you leave because of your boss and that was the case with me.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, it's a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Culture that promotes teamwork, respected industry leader nationally, demonstrates ethical business practices. CEO has an engaging and inspiring leadership style. Positive vision on prospects for growth and expansion.

    Cons

    Leadership is not inclusive, very few women and people of color in key roles, though steps are being taken to improve. Conservative mindset does not always look to include next generation of leadership in decision making process.

    Advice to Management

    Take steps to address issues around communication and effectively defining career paths, particularly with younger generations and woman.
