    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Pennoni full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very good benefits; office and location are nice; good Christmas bonus

    Cons

    Job is too demanding; job turn around time is unrealistic; new management is quick to throw you under the bus. You have to do your job and theirs. Even though it is a small office, it is very cliquish.

  5. "Little emphasis on MEP"

    3.0
    Current Employee - Electrical Engineer in Wilmington, DE

    I have been working at Pennoni full-time

    Pros

    The ESOP is decent if you stay in the company for several years. Having several offices throughout the east coast keeps project work relatively steady.

    Cons

    Little corporate support of divisions that are not Civil/Site development, Environmental, or Traffic oriented. High turnover of young employees.

  6. "civil engineering"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Civil Engineer in Washington, DC

    I worked at Pennoni full-time

    Pros

    not a whole lot I think

    Cons

    Cannot Think anything at this point

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Pennoni full-time

    Pros

    With the right boss hours can be flexible, benefits are somewhat comparable to other companies

    Cons

    Sexism and racism tend to run rampant here like many other ACEC companies, you'll get treated like dirt if you're not a white male Very little opportunity to grow (unless you're a Pennoni) blatant nepotism is the only way to get promotions/not be furloughed Some jerks get to stay in middle/upper management for many years, high turnover happens because nothing is done about it With offices all along the East Coast, if you're not in the powerhouse offices (corporate or Newark, DE) you're gonna have a rougher time with growth and will often be forgotten by corporate Only ~8 holidays, and 2 weeks of vacation, takes 5 years to get up to 3 weeks ESOP won't mean much to you unless you're loyal and stay for 6+ years (probably standard but not a great deal) Not giving off christmas eve like previous years, although a privilege, is absolutely stingy. No bonuses either. Company performance has seemingly gone down the drain. No raises company-wide this year (again probably normal considering COVID) but no recognition of achievement = building resentment, resulting in company shedding good employees who move to greener pastures
