    I worked at SCS Engineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many companies out there believe all employees should share in the success of the company. This one does. I wish more companies would have the same attitude. They do great work and have a sense of family.

    Cons

    Hmm...Can't really think of one because overall the benefits were really good. I guess I could complain that they don't pay 100% medical, but again, being employee-owned made up for that.

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

    Pros

    The staff are a mix of knowledge-leaders and creative, smart engineers that work hard to make their projects successful. The staff walk the talk too. If you're willing to commit yourself to being the best, this is the place to be. Very friendly, professional atmosphere and culture. Knowledge and experience blended with new technologies and new solutions.

    Cons

    If you are not willing to give 110%, don't work with self-starters and over-achievers.

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

    Pros

    I have worked with this company for just about 2 years, and overall it has been an awesome experience. The engineers and staff are extremely professional, excellent in what they do, and truly some of the greatest people I know. Working for this great company has opened up so many doors and opportunities for me, I have had incredible opportunities to dive into several areas that make up this type of engineering.

    Overall, this is a great company to work for. SCS works very hard to get the job done, but it isn't one of those companies that consumes your life. I am enjoying everything I do, and will continue to look and move forward with such a great company.

    Cons

    Not much travel involved.
    Not involved in seeking work or preparing my own proposals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You have done an incredible job building this company and I am excited to see where we grow from here.

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

    Pros

    I have been at SCS only a few months, and so far, so great! In this short time, I've had a great mix of field work and office work. I love the accessibility of senior professionals to junior level staff. In addition, advancement opportunities are already present. This is the company I hope to retire from.

    Cons

    Well, there is a lot of work. I don't know if that is really a con because the opposite of a lot of work in our field is lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    A great company of incredibly qualified, intelligent, and enjoyable people to work with. Calm and comfortable atmosphere. Great management and company culture. SCS Engineers takes very good care of their employees. If you ever need something all you have to do is speak up. Management is very approachable. It has great benefits for full-time employees. They are extremely flexible with work/family balance.

    Cons

    Slow to make changes. It's a large firm so it's easy to only know people within your department. Need to make an effort to reach out to other departments and familiarize yourself. It will help with collaborating on projects!

    Advice to Management

    None
