    I have been working at Gannett Fleming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment, wide range of projects, opportunity to take initiative. Work-life balance is at good levels and experienced employees are quite helpful about professional development.

    Cons

    It is a very corporate company however they should create more training opportunities and after work activities for employees.

    Advice to Management

    They are overall in good shape, just one thing that they could be more interactive with employees and create more training options for them

    I worked at Gannett Fleming full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Name recognition and solid reputation particularly for dams and highway design and construction management. Good job security if working within the company's core competencies.

    Cons

    Young go-getters quickly become bored and start looking for more challenging opportunities with other companies. Older workers joining the company later in their careers may find themselves limited by a very parochial culture and nepotism. Employee satisfaction varies widely by office location and supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace new ideas. Set intent and budget guidance, then step back and let managers do their jobs.
