    Pros

    Many paths for personal growth in the civil/geotech engineering career path. Upper management recognizes the sacrifices made when traveling for long term jobs. Coworkers genuinely care for your well being and success in the company.

    Pros mentioned above do not apply to all offices. Lack of diversity, very white male dominated culture.

    I have been working at Schnabel Engineering full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    An emphasis on strong mentoring and guidance. Performance is recognized and rewarded accordingly. Emphasis on high quality deliverables. Encouraged to be a seller-doer and a soup to nuts design engineer; this keeps work interesting. Feedback is constructive.

    Cons

    Cons are mostly market driven; Geotechnical engineering is increasingly becoming commoditized, and Dam engineering tends to span a large geography.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage involvement and training in our most profitable business lines. As our company grows, continue to maintain contact with each and every employee.
