    I worked at LJA Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits ESOP Profit Sharing Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    50+ hours is expected. Anything less is treated like excessive absenteeism. Frantic work load. Deadlines stacked on top of Deadlines. While morale is usually high; there is a undercurrent of excessive stress that affects the work environment. Not a very diverse group of employees.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't listen even if I had some.
