    Pros

    The people are really good to work with. Generally very collaborative and helpful and supportive. Projects are interesting, if you're on the right team. Lots of good internal resources.

    Cons

    Long work hours, but salaries are only middle of the pack. (This is OK if you get paid overtime, but it's rougher if you're on salary.) As the company has grown, the amount of bureaucracy has increased

    Advice to Management

    corporate bureaucracy sometimes gets in the way of getting projects done efficiently. focus your efforts more on streamlining the way people work, not on generating more tracking logs and financial reports.

    Pros

    Very friendly staff, eager to help with questions, very informed, organized project system, good community outreach. Good mix of design work and analytical projects.

    Cons

    Really very very few cons - they may work more on their continued education program, to keep all employees up to date on the latest technologies, and also to keep the employees excited about the field.

    Really care about employees and will work with you to find a job/department that best suits your interests and abilities. Also flexible in allowing time for family

    Cons

    It is a company that works on fast paced high profile projects so days are long and when a project is really picking up 50-70hour work weeks are the norm.
