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

    Pros

    As an employee owned company, SCS' motto is "Ownership makes a difference" and it shows in their employees. Colleagues and superiors are knowledgeable and professional, and take the time to teach the younger professionals. The hard work ethic is contagious, and employees are encouraged to learn new things, push the envelope of new designs & techniques within the industry, & are given the tools to do so.

    Cons

    In the consulting industry, it's often "feast or famine" when it comes to workload. There are times when multiple deadlines need to be met in a short span, and other times when work is spread thin (though not as often).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. In my experience, employee feedback & concerns are listened to by management. There are good working relationships across all levels of employees, from board members to new hires.

    I have been working at SCS Engineers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and great work. I have learned a lot in my field from my coworkers and the projects that I work on. The office layout is nice. The company is getting bigger and we're pretty busy. Personally, I like the fast-paced atmosphere but it might not be for everyone.

    Cons

    The pay is on the lower side of the spectrum. I want to stay at SCS for awhile because the work is great but I may have to reconsider if the pay doesn't go up.

    Advice to Management

    Check out competitors salaries.
