Does not live up to the hype
Project Manager (Former Employee), Duluth, GAApril 23, 2015
Pros: Interesting work at times
Cons: Low to average pay, health insurance below par for a company this size, retirement plan will be suspended at will if company is not making enough money
The web site looks good and they talk up a good game, but once your are on the inside you discover a company overrun with people willing to throw others under the bus to advance their self serving agendas at the middle and upper management level. There were some good folks that I worked with (mainly in the trenches that actually do work), but most have moved on also because of this culture. Those who go the extra mile are rarely recognized unless it is of direct benefit to those at the top. Employee moral is low and turnover is high - need I say more?

Difficult environment for Architects
Architect (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, ColoradoJune 17, 2014
Pros: alot of good people work there, salaries are above normal
Cons: management. marketing effort is short sighted. frequent layoffs.
Management perceives Architecture as an ancillary entity needed to support its Engineering efforts. Marketing excludes the pursuit of Architectural jobs and a lot of Architecture work is farmed out to outside firms. The office is a Project Management centric firm leaving little to no room for creative solutions or contact with clients. Work load varies greatly month to month due to client being the US government and marketing unable to pursue work beyond the US Government. Firm is not set up to pursue outside work and susceptible to frequent layoffs and hiring exercises. Management will not hesitate to lay people off at the first sign of slow down, which is often. A lot of good people work there but firm is incredibly top heavy with large overhead structure in place.

A typical day at work was busy and productive.

Open door type management.
Co-workers worked in a team environment with the main goal was to provide excellent services to clients.
The hardest part of the job with the fast pace work involved.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the good working relationships with co-workers.

average place to work
Architect III (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, ColoradoJuly 12, 2013
Excellent Staff, To much overhead staff, poor management. Management is unaware of the work that is accomplished by staff and has a tendency to layoff from income staff and not from overhead-to many leaders. Working with the clients and fellow workers a plus, management a negative

Supervised 4 individuals
Engineer (Former Employee), Denver Tech Center, COJune 14, 2013
Pros: good people to work with.
Cons: tight delivery schedule.
Worked on a very time sensitive project. Client was concerned about some quality issues on design documents. Under my leadership, the team was able to reduce comments by 300% within one years time.

Poorly Managed
Civil Engineer II (Current Employee), CharlotteMay 20, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: poor management, low compensation
The office environment is very low key, bordering on unprofessional. The management is lacking experiencing in anything but residential work. Residential work has been the core of the Charlotte office, low profit, high work load. Projects are poorly managed, with little accountability. Management is weak and inexperienced. If you are looking to improve your career, look somewhere else.

Flexible hours and friendly environment. Great company to work for.
Civil Designer II (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COMay 8, 2013
Pros: friendly environment and work with individual's schedule.
Cons: work load was up and down.
I worked a six month contract with Merrick & Company. They were an excellent company to work with. They work with your schedule, and I personally didn't have a single bad experience working with them. They allow employees to learn new things, and they treat everyone as professionals no matter what stage of your career you may be at.

Great pay, very demanding and poor family environment.
Engineering (Former Employee), Duluth, GAMay 5, 2013
Pros: excellent pay, benefits are very good.
Cons: micro-managers with alot of power, money matters-employees don't
In Ga, Nothing good about this super dry work environment. All of the project mgrs and especially the office mgr (former proj mgr) are cut throat. All they care about is how good you make them look. Seems like fellow coworkers are walking on egg shells. If proj mgrs don't like you for any reason, you will not get work. True example, They will always wait "last minute" for completing deadlines, to minimize – more... charging hours to the project. More than often, 5 minutes before you finish your scheduled 8 they will "ask" you to work over 1-2 hrs and sometimes till midnight or bring work home and work on weekends and question you with "side comments" about charging hours to the project that you actually work. Even if you are part-time you hear side comments about why you leave after your 6. If you don't comply, you will suffer later. They say they are family friendly? NOT, Wait and see how family friendly they are. These are my experiences there so if you don't have a family and you don't mind the pettiness then you will thrive. Don't say you not warned! – less
