    I worked at Johnson Engineering Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Good people and a good company if working at the main office in Fort Myers.

    Cons

    Not enough training when starting at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Better training program for new engineers. Look out more for the offices outside of Fort Myers.

    I have been working at Johnson Engineering Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of local knowledge and expertise. Hardworking, long-term, invested employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Johnson Engineering Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was paid well and had bonuses in the good years.

    Cons

    There are too many owners for the size of the company. It is WAY too HQ-centric...if you don't work in Ft Myers, you might as well work for a different company. And when times are tough, they'll do what they can to make sure whatever work you do bring in ends up in their hands instead. Company is reactive rather than proactive and just learns from the mistakes of other firms. Project tracking is a joke - hugely successful projects are seen as a failure if there is a small bill outstanding, and projects with their budget blown several times over are seen as success stories if their budget has been billed and paid in full.

    Advice to Management

    You're part of the company, not simply part of the Fort Myers office. You should be supporting the efforts of the satellite offices and especially not acting like a competitor.


  6. "Management style is stuck in the 70's"

    Pros

    Good compensation for degree-holding employees.

    Cons

    Old school management. Not receptive to new ideas. "We have been doing it this way for the last 30 years..." has been spoken by management on more than once.

    Advice to Management

    Send upper management back to school. There are better ways to improve the bottom line.
