    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company culture is great, people genuinely do love what they do and are willing to help you, many opportunities to learn and good benefits.

    Cons

    If you end up in a workaholic team, you won't have the best time working or getting close to your team mates. There is no work life balance. People working late past midnight and working up and early too often.

    Pros

    Great projects, amazing mentoring, no boundaries to career growth, competitive salary and benefits, the company values its employees and is heavily invested in them. High performance culture conducive to career growth, but the company values work-life balance and offers flexibility in work hours.

    Cons

    High-performance culture - so, a con if one is not looking for a career and is interested in just skating by.

    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great projects, varied work, good pay w/ overtime for staff, you will interact with very technical people in different disciplines, approachable managers, good growth, good IT department and other technical support, tuition reimbursement. A great place for early career experience, and there is a strong Seller-Doer culture that really rewards those who generate new business for managers and above who are adept at business development.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is very challenging. Very high utilization targets. Silo structure with poor cooperation and sometimes internal competition between senior managers. The strong Seller-Doer culture rewards the sellers far more than doers, and there is no technical career advancement track. If you don't sell, you plateau. The silos and seller focus also results in a general lack of corporate guidance, training, and administrative support surprising for a company of their size and caliber of projects. Early career staff are mostly insulated from these cons though.

    I worked at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are a very driven, career-oriented engineer who has no issue sacrificing your life for your employer, Langan is great. Langan is a good engineering company. Lots of very smart people. It's an extremely highly-competitive environment. You will learn a lot. But it comes at a very steep price if you are not willing to sacrifice your soul.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as work-life balance. Try as they may to sell it any other way. Ownership struggles to be human. Since every decision comes down to maximizing profits, everything is a competition. You'll be bumping heads with a lot of very greedy sharks.

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

    Pros

    Company culture is amazing - they want you to have a work-life balance. Lots of opportunities for professional and personal development (ex Lunch and Learns, where they even buy lunch for us sometimes! They also have a ton of training to help employees brush up on skills, like AutoCAD). The projects are really interesting and Langan has a portfolio of big projects which is exciting to be part of.

    Cons

    Even though there is a heavy emphasis on work-life balance, you are expected to work long hours sometimes. Even on a normal week most employees put about 45 hours in, and with deadlines pressing you can hit way higher numbers.

    Great co-workers, flexible workplace options, high-profile projects and many opportunities to learn if you seize them.

    Cons

    Little-to-no work life balance. You work above your level but are not properly compensated; there seems to be no fair or transparent system for compensating employees.
