    Pros

    This company has been in business in Texas for over 80 years, and the management team and engineers who work here are good at what they do.

    They are not an independent company; they are wholly owned by an architecture firm in Omaha NE. Occasionally, this presented complications - mostly on the admin side of the organization.

    I worked at Lockwood, Andrews, & Newnam full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, flexible hours, most weeks really are 40 hours, frequent office equipment upgrades, good variety of project diversity, 3% company match for 401k, management very approachable

    Cons

    Unpredictable workload months in advance, no profit sharing/bonuses, slightly below average salaries vs. city avg, high turnover rate, insurance benefits are way below industry-average, a lot of work that could be shared internally gets sub-contracted to another firm

    Advice to Management

    When one group is slow but another is busy, let other business groups help each other rather than having so much overhead

    Good people, opportunities for advancement and development. Interesting projects on a variety of fronts allow you to gain exposure to a large cross section of the industry.

    Many, many processes and forms and checklists involved in project execution. Company seems to be struggling with how to let people do their jobs. Management is not necessarily heavy handed just annoyingly present.

    Back off and let your people do their jobs.
