    This company is the best. Employees are invested in heavily and they do their best to make sure you are happy. Benefits are the best I've come across. The culture here is very welcoming, warm and they always are encouraging you to develop yourself professionally.

    Communication between management needs some work.

    If you are going to change something that affects a lower tier of employees, please let them know instead of dropping a complete change of procedures on them without notice.

    The size is relative but feels small but has some power of larger firm. Small enough that everyone should talk to CEO and President, but large enough that there are plenty of resources.

    Some old school and more perceived old school barriers.

    Easier review process

    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.
