      Pros

      Working at Langan, you will get the opportunity to truly grow your craft as you learn more about what it means to be an engineering consultant or environmental scientist.

      Cons

      No two days will be the same. I have been working here for nearly 20 years and I still learn something new - each day.

      Employees Pay a Hefty Cost for Phenomenal Career Opportunity(s)

      Apr 8, 2021 - Senior Project Personnel

      Pros

      The firm's caliber of projects, professionals, and clientele are outstanding and each continually challenge seasoned and developing professionals within the firm. The firm collaborates and utilizes advanced and innovative technologies and research to develop and design client's projects. Work standards are commendably high.

      Cons

      Opportunity for the firm's professionals to be engaged in the firm's elite projects requires the professionals to be ruthless, extremely aggressive with their subordinates, superiors, and clients (assertiveness is nowhere near adequate to survive in the firm), and dedicate every minute of their time and all their energy to work. Professional achievements and success at the firm come at a hefty cost; work-life balance is non-existent or distorted at best because work IS life at Langan; personal boundaries are often disrespected by management; management is tyrannical and does not accept subordinate's professional goals and satisfactions that are perceived and less than management's own professional goals and satisfaction. Personal well-being (i.e. physical and mental health, personal relationships, and personal satisfactions) is negatively impacted if not sacrificed and destroyed while being employed with the firm.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits. Bonuses are common even for hourly workers. So many opportunities to work on engaging and challenging projects. They do treat their people right.

      Cons

      Work-life balance is very challenging. Working late and on weekends is the norm. There are always very tight deadlines due to the nature of the work.

      Good culture and benefits

      Pros

      Good benefits and decent vacation time, but still using the separate sick time and vacation time model. Leadership is solid and keeps employees regularly updated on the vision of the company and does a good job of keeping employees happy through events and perks that make everyday office life a little better. Office culture is good and people work hard because they generally like what they're doing.

      Cons

      Personally, I got stuck doing the same thing for too long without much growth in salary or title, though that could be chalked up to lack of entrepreneurial spirit at the time.
