    Pros

    Finally a company that values a work-life balance! This company believe or not trusts their employees and has virtually no micromanagement. Perfect for someone who works independently.

    Cons

    Honestly, it's hard to think of any. I would say if you're the type of person who needs constant feedback or management oversight, this might not be the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe provide more feedback but it's not a necessity.

    Pros

    This company is truly unique. When you walk through the doors you learn quickly that you are seen as a individual with unique talents and experiences instead of a number. Your coworkers become family and this is a place where you can absolutely learn and grow.

    Cons

    If there was one thing I would like to see, its more line of sight for career plans. However, employees are not locked into one path so your options are almost unlimited so long as you show interest and ability.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! The transparency from executives and dedication to employee growth make his a fantastic place to work.

    Pros

    Good start up job, if you don't mind working long hours for low pay

    Cons

    Very poor local management structure. Politics prevails over competency. Some of the managers were definitely not promoted for their ability! Micro management is rife. Unrealistic goals set by management with most employees having to work 60+ hours to meet mandatory requirements. Only paid for 40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Put competent managers in place. Have realistic goals. You're High staff turnover should tell you something isn't right

    I worked at Partner Engineering and Science full-time

    Pros

    You are busy all day so the day passes quickly.

    Cons

    TOXIC environment. The atmosphere is severe sweat shop. The Director is a dictator who hides behind a facade of being religious and is protected by being a partner. The man obviously is intimidated by strong women and he is quick to relieve women close to retirement age of their job.

    Advice to Management

    Supervise the partners, listen to the number of people complaining about the atmosphere there. There are too many women contacting you regarding this guy and still you ignore. It could catch up to you.

    Pros

    Very nice people and positive attitude, which comes from the top (Joe). Joe is a solid solid guy and that flows down to everyone else.

    Cons

    Still developing as a full service consulting company, so some things not fully there yet.

    Pros

    The people that work there and the work environment combine to create a great place to work. The flexible work schedule is a huge plus as well, especially since life can get so busy these days with traffic, work commutes, family, and other obligations. I also love the ability to grow in your career and the encouragement to get various licenses. You just have to make your goals known and people are very receptive.

    Cons

    Not many, but pay could be a little better. However, again, work flexibility and work environment are a big plus.

    Pros

    I really love the culture at Partner, and the sense of teamwork. Plus I work with amazing people in all kinds of disciplines that enjoy what they do, so it makes executing unique and challenging projects fun. And the work/life balance is the best I've experienced in my career - I only give it 4 stars because it's still consulting, and the consulting industry gets very demanding at times.

    Cons

    Honestly, I have yet to find a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
