    I worked at Parametrix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee owned (not just for tax reasons), good benefits, work/life balance is respected & valued, good time off, management is transparent with staff regarding financials & project pursuits.

    Cons

    You may not get work which matches your interests, even if you express interests. Limited opportunities for professional development & training. Cliquey social culture.

    Advice to Management

    Focus a bit more on matching junior engineers with work/projects of their interest.

    Poor management in Finance. If you aren't one of the CFO's little puppets, you won't stay very long.

    Great coworkers, excellent wages, somewhat room for advancement

    Clean house in upper management starting with CFO

    I worked at Parametrix

    Pros

    Good community of people. Good Benefits. Free lunches occasionally. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Basically forces engineers to change from "Engineers" to marketers" who have to cold call clients to seek work when time is slow. This leads to engineers spending excess time doing overhead work and thus having to work long hours to keep up with project work.

    Advice to Management

    Start mentoring the young employees. All the oldies wont be around forever and currently nothing is being done to replace them when they are gone.
