    Pros

    Hands on field work allowed me to see how material learned in lecture applies to real life engineering projects. Employer allowed me to work on a variety of projects in different locations.

    Cons

    Working in the field can be a challenge a times because of the summer heat and long hours. In the real world though, long days are just a fact of life and I was well compensated for my hard work.

    Long hours and low pay? I'm out

    Sep 28, 2015 - Anonymous Employee

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Some really great, unique projects that were brought in. - Upper management were approachable - Travel to different areas

    Cons

    - Travel to different areas when they didn't have anything for you to do - Work Life Balance was very off; long hours were required for many projects - Forced to undercut number of hours charged and billed, this became too much of a numbers game to management - Very low starting salary, it would have taken 4-5 years to get comparable pay - Cut-throat competition that did not cater to those in a cooperative team environment

    High stress environment

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good coworkers, everyone works very hard. Interesting projects and ok compensation. Overtime pay for staff level personnel.

    Cons

    The focus on billability and client responsiveness leads to a very high stress environment with tight budgets and tighter deadlines. Constantly understaffed and expected to work long hours and weekends. Just did a round of layoffs despite increasing billings year after year.

    Pros

    A good place to get get experience as you will always be involved on multiple projects at the time, good training programs and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough staff, project engineers and managers end up doing staff work regularly. Salaries are notoriously low for the industry while the hours are long and expectations are high. Opportunities to grow are limited as the company is extremely top heavy.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on great projects with high visibility, support from a world-class marketing mindset, ability to learn great soft skills, technical excellence

    Great company to work for

    Oct 13, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in Elmwood Park, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Incredible opportunities for learning, professional growth and development - making sure employees have the appropriate tools and resources they need to do well here. Terrific opportunity for advancement and to interact with individuals of varying disciplines and levels to provide better work and learning experience.

    Cons

    nothing major that I would consider a true 'con' or big downside - there are some longer days or extra hours but nothing I wasn't prepared for and it's just the nature of the consulting industry. Hard work is rewarded, and I feel appreciated for going that extra mile or putting in those extra hours when needed.

    Pros

    A good employee benefits package.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Long hours and raises/promotions are not merit based. Social events are only meant to keep you there longer. Everything is about the Langan “brand”.
