    Pros

    Give you good experience and responsibilities and are reasonable and flexible in their expectations.

    Cons

    The pay seems just slightly behind other places. The same as any other job. Some days are more or less interesting than others.

    I worked at Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start learning as an EIT, great coworkers, decent pay, yearly performance reviews, and overtime pay included. Positive experience for most of my time there.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, lack of trust in employee time management, and ineffective meetings were all very common in the workplace. Also, since the firm is primarily a highways civil engineering firm, projects tended to be repetitive and mundane.

    Advice to Management

    Going after a variety of new and interesting projects will help keep younger employees more engaged.

    I have been working at Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse company with lots of different types of projects and types of business. They get involved with some really cool engineering projects that have a high profile. The culture is laid back and fun. Pay is pretty good and the owners and management seem to really care about the employees. Overall a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Old office space, but in a good location. I've heard that they may move or upgrade soon...interested to see what happens there. For employees just starting out, there could be more vacation/PTO, but you have to wait to accumulate more days over time. You kind of have to make your own way here and be your advocate which is good and bad...it takes time to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more defined career roadmap for your employees. Better communicate long and short term goals of the firm to staff and how they fit in. Keep up the good stuff and bring in more cool projects. A nice new office is going to help morale...stay in Towson or better yet....downtown.

    I have been working at Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good variety of work, decent benefits, great department leader, employees in all disciplines easy to get along with. higher ups within the department are very knowledgeable and are always willing to offer advice. IT department is good with keeping all software up to date.

    benefits package is decent (medical (HSA), dental, vision, 401k, holidays, overtime (straight pay for positions below the VP level)).

    Cons

    when your department isn't winning big jobs, the projects get very boring. The office atmosphere is nothing to get excited about (very dated compared to the higher end firms). Very slow for any type of promotion. Salary compared to other Glassdoor reviews is nothing worth getting excited about either.

    Advice to Management

    update the office! having an 90's style office will not impress potential/future employees
