    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    After working for a couple different engineering consulting firms, I can see the unique culture and value that Langan brings. They support an entrepreneurial spirit and truly give young engineers and consultants the opportunity to not only work on some of the most exciting and high-profile projects, but take real ownership in their success. They put a lot of responsibility in the hands of young staff and managers, unlike many other companies where you feel like a throwaway cog in a machine. When you help clients solve problems, you really feel like you were part of the solution. They have also made strides recently to improve the office workplace, moving towards a more modern, open office, but not so open that you have no personal space. They put enough emphasis on people development and advancement is fairly regular, but appropriately merit-based.

    Cons

    Because of the amount of responsibility they place on staff and managers, the work can really pile up. There are big opportunities here, but it will take hard work to get the most out of them. Sometimes, it can feel understaffed.

    I have been working at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Langan is a great company to work for. They treat their employees well, offering salaries that are competative with other similar firms, opportunities for bonuses, challenging projects, and the necessary resources to get the job done and done well! I have been at Langan for over 15 years and have advanced my career through these years. The work environment is good with lots of great people that are not only great at what they do but are people that I can call my friends! Langan creates a family environment offering opportunties to attend baseball games, holiday parties, themed lunches, etc. They have started to offer more flexible/mobile work opportunities with the introduction of laptops and use of VPNs so that you can connect to the network remotely.

    Cons

    Work life balance has in the past has been challenging but it is defintely getting better with the introduction of more fexible/mobile work opportunties! They also need to offer more project managment training.

    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Will spend money to tout that they have the best and latest models of everything in every discipline. If you are one of the "chosen ones" or the type of person who would rather be subservient to management than work hard and have a desire to help others you will do fine here. However, at the lower levels the people are outstanding, great to work with and will work as a team to help each other out. To the hard workers...do not expect a thank you.

    Cons

    HUGE corporate atmosphere exists in some offices. Management will tell clients whatever they want to hear to win the work and then give these unrealistic expectations and deadlines to the staff who somehow have to get it done in the field and in the office. Late nights, weekends, overnights, get ready to do it in every discipline. Money is average, however, until you are Senior PM level DO NO expect to be rewarded with generous raises or outstanding bonuses. Be smart and watch your back, mngmt will tell you that you mean the world, but the minute the door closes you are the enemy. Upper management is gaining fame in the industry by belittling competitors. Engineering disciplines is well respected, survey, no so much, IT gets it done.
