    I worked at Greeley and Hansen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, corporate culture, technical expertise, and reputation in the industry. Niche focus company-wide.

    Cons

    You might be in a smaller office and feel disconnected from headquarters or work for a tenured engineer with minimal people and mentoring skills.

    Pros

    Very flexible and really puts into consideration the interns interest!

    Cons

    Nothing! Everything and everyone is so friendly and cooperative!

    Advice to Management

    Everything runs smoothly. If anything, maybe having work ready for interns rather than looking for it on the day of work alone.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for Greeley and Hansen. I was very fortunate to work for such a motivated team. We had meetings with catered snacks, company outings, contests, etc. I appreciated the company’s benefits, such as summer hours and especially retirement plan benefits (401K, Company Profit Sharing and pension plan).

    Cons

    Sometimes, have to work after-hours due to workload or project's due date.

    I have been working at Greeley and Hansen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great office culture with concern for employee welfare and work/life balance. Excellent people to work with every day. Exciting projects for big clients with a small company feel. Room for growth for anyone willing to work for it with lots of potential for success. Support for working parents. Excellent benefits - pension plan, etc. Visionary leadership with a great plan for the future.

    Cons

    The company has a lot of great ideas and initiatives that improve how we work, however communication to all staff can be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees informed of the many initiatives both implemented and planned that improve how we work. This should be done through multiple pathways, as everyone has a different way of absorbing information.

    I have been working at Greeley and Hansen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Chicago office is in the heart of Downtown Chicago and was recently remodeled. Unfortunately, that's about as far as the pros go.

    Cons

    Going into work everyday isn't worth the hassle of trying to stay positive. There are so many different cliques at the office it's like being back in high school, and if you don't fall into one of those cliques it's just tough luck for you. The President and HR may be the worst clique. You can tell he favors that team over any of the other groups in the office. Communication and priorities are very bad amongst management which often puts the other employees in a highly stressful situation of staying late or working on the weekends to finish projects that could have been finished much sooner. Despite the President and the CEO working primarily at the Chicago office they are rarely seen. The company has provided breakfast once a week over the winter but neither the President or CEO have ever come. Overall, they aren't a very inclusive group and frankly don't seem to ever have their act together.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and realize that the happiness of your employees will directly effect their performance. Without the employees, the company would cease to exist.

    I worked at Greeley and Hansen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities, freindly colleagues, work life balance

    Cons

    No mentoring, no encouragement, no career growth. Management seems to show high partiality towards one or two over the rest of the staff in giving salary raises.

    Advice to Management

    1) Huge disconnect between the management goals set at the head quarters and operations conducted at regional offices. 2) Annual review process has to be revisted to make it function as it is supposed to be. 3) Set standards to value employees as equally as clients. 4) Provide mandatory training opportunities company wide. 5) Check the salary raises of all the employees for the past 5 years and prioritize ehancing the skill set for those who are lagging behind.
