    I worked at Primera Engineers full-time

    Pros

    Attractively designed Chicago Office.
    Many long term respected clients.
    Management does seem to care about employees professionally and personally.
    Wellness program exists. Fine Marketing department.
    Great Loop location and Lisle office convenient to expressway.
    Technologically current. Well staffed and skilled IT department.
    Lots of very skilled employees who are easy to work with.

    Logjam to advance to PM and Group Manager
    Client Diversification needed.
    Chicago fun quotient trending downward.

    Advice to Management

    See if a smiling face greets you when you enter the office. Visit Friday happy hour more often. Bring a Vision consultant in the office for better reports.

    I have been working at Primera Engineers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management at Primera goes out of their way to make the office culture relaxed and fun. Flexible work schedules are a perk.

    Cons

    Sometimes the relaxed atmosphere is a little too relaxed... As with any flexible and relaxed environment, there are those that take advantage of the trust.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be focused more on results within the business and not get so lost focusing on ISO procedures.

  3. "Great quality."

    I worked at Primera Engineers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive workplace environment and a great commitment toward the employees.

    Cons

    Low pay. Salary is not competitive with today's average annual income of equivalent positions. Other companies pay better.

    Advice to Management

    Could compensate better.


  4. "Commitment to a quality workplace and a quality product."

    Pros

    Primera has a very diverse, talented staff and is very supportive and accommodating as long as you satisfy the requirements of your position.

    Cons

    It seems as though the workload is typically either really busy or really slow, but I think that's typical for most construction-related companies over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Management is pretty good about communicating strategy and progress, but I think most employees would appreciate more communication regarding where future work is coming from.

    Pros

    Very flexible to outside schedules and truly care about a work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's difficult to implement bigger changes due to an attitude of if it ain't broke don't fix it.
