Current Employee - Project Engineer

Pros

ability to work across North America from many offices
strong presence in multiple sectors and service lines
ability to be part of multi-disipline projects

Cons

some managers with misplaced focus on utilization of thier people over what is best for clients and the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

management approach is still not consistent with the CEO's vision in all regions, need to identify managers that are just out to climb the ladder and not develop employees, quality services that will lead to organic growth

    Pros

    Variety of project types and sizes

    Cons

    Driven by the the bottom line
    Work-sharing doesn't really work - offices fight for revenue
    Different offices compete for the same work
    Young managers are put in over their heads
    They simply don't care about their people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What upper management says to the offices doesn't matter.
    People Center? not a chance!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Redmond, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Redmond, WA (US)

    Pros

    1. A handful of smart, hardworking, junior-level staff that work dilligently despite being severely underpaid with little to no chance of growth and development. 2. The architecture department.

    Cons

    If you love being discouraged from working hard and being reprimanded and punished for going above and beyond, then this is the perfect place for you. Otherwise, stay away! If you are ambitious, intelligent, and hardworking, this is seen as a threat to the completely incompetent management, and you will be forced out whether by choice or not. The lack of professionalism in this office is unbelievable for a company of this size. Do not expect your voice to be heard here; do not expect anyone to value hard work and intellect. This place is an utter disgrace compared to the rest of the local consulting community. The other reviews for this office are spot on; listen to the numbers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about what is best for the future of the organization and not just the current state. If you want the company to succeed, you need to invest in the future and stop worrying about your oversized paycheck. Most importantly, put others above yourself since all the people below you are keeping the place afloat.
