    I have been working at SYSTRA Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    SYSTRA has a family style environment with amazing people to work with. The open door policy and room for mentoring is all within arm's reach or email. In the recent era of large corporations and massive takeovers, SYSTRA stands behinds its employees in all phases of their career growth. No job is too big and people help out when needed. Everyone is kind and respectful.

    Cons

    No company is perfect. The trick is working with all kinds of people and appreciating what makes us different. No cons here! (no pun intended).

    I worked at SYSTRA Consulting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Reputation - At least for a while, SYSTRA was THE place to work. Some of that reputation is still in place, depending on which department you consider.

    Cons

    The parent company in France began inserting itself into this once-autonomous company's operations several years ago and hired 'yes-people' into corporate leadership. Downhill ever since.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the experts you hire.

    Pros

    Friendly staff and great management. Have been with Systra for almost 5 years. Highly motivated and knowledgeable staff, eager to share knowledge.

    Cons

    The perception of instability in the company is driven by the recent change in management, although this change was beneficial for the company.

    I worked at SYSTRA Consulting

    Pros

    It used to be a good company to work in. There were very good engineers and planners. Unfortunately most of them left the company due to incompetent management at the top.

    Cons

    The top management was terribly screwed up, which drove most senior and competent staff to its competitors in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together to prove that the company is worth existing.

    I have been working at SYSTRA Consulting

    Pros

    I see the company going in a positive direction. Yes there have been a lot of changes recently but it is for the better. I'm looking forward to the future here. The employees are also very friendly. Great benefits compared to others in the A/E industry.

    Cons

    Their IT is lacking, could offer more telecommuting options.

    Advice to Management

    Staff up IT. Put a focus on communication to employees. More visitation from senior management to the other offices would be nice (goes with the communication).
