    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Langan is very encouraging of its employees and I worked with some of the best people. They notice hard work and give you opportunities to grow in your field. Considering that this was my first job, I have learnt a lot in my 2.5 years with Langan. The employees are closely knit and I have enjoyed numerous happy hours and outdoor activities with my colleagues.

    Cons

    Personally, my experience has been truly positive.

    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Langan prides itself on providing the highest quality (and generally expensive) service to clients. From my perspective, I can say that a majority of the work the company has done supports the promise of "technical excellence." Most of the people I worked with are smart, highly-motivated, and pleasant coworkers.

    Cons

    While Langan does encourage its employees to learn new skills and supports continuing education, the importance of the "billable hour" is made clear. Understandable, but some managers could probably do a better job of dealing with this business necessity without passing all the stress onto staff-level employees. Generally, I did not have trouble with this, but I discussed the issue with other coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Completely overhaul the review process and encourage employees to speak freely and honestely about challenges they encounter

    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment and culture . Paid Time and half for overtime hours for people paid hourly not salary . Lots of Free food and goodies for employees . Great in house training seminars that offer employees a chance to learn about other aspects of engineering . Free Health Benefits ! Great coffee machine 😄

    Cons

    Very very poor work life balance ! You are expected to work and work and work until you have completed two days of work in one ! The base pay is very very low compared to other companies ! Managers care only that you do not go over the projects budget ! Too much work not enough staff ! You are being worked like a horse, working for two people instead of 1 .

    Advice to Management

    I suggest hiring more staff to meet your project deadlines. Do not overwork your employees . Distribute work load accordingly as to not put so much work load on one person . Listen to every employee , because everyone has the right to be heard !
