Work would normally consist of working on multiple projects out in the field. The best part about the job is working out in the field and it usually never the same repeditive thing, someting different.

Tightly knitted firm very family oriented to be a large firm.
ASSOCIATE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), Kansas City, MODecember 15, 2012
Pros: bonus incentive
The typical work day consist of project updates daily between all teams and clients. Either by phone,email or face to face. The management where updated on teams progress during weekly meetings. My co-workers where well organized and worked hard to accomplish project before projected due date. The hardest part of my job was resigning. The most enjoyable – more... part of my job where reviews received for clients for a job well done. – less

Unspectacular
Project Engineer (Former Employee), Omaha, NEDecember 1, 2012
Pros: casual, friendly atmosphere.
Cons: poor quality product, lack of concern for employees.
Olsson seems to be a fairly typical civil engineering firm. While not a terrible company, I wouldn't say they stand out in any way either. The company is quite inefficient, and doesn't seem willing to make investments to improve productivity. Management seems rather inept when it comes to using foresight, or making important decisions when they are – more... needed. The focus here really appears to center on extorting clients and exploiting employees. This is reflected by an extremely high turnover margin.

Olsson is too big of a company to write a fitting review that may really be applied to everything. Their team structure means that your experience here will really depend heavily on the quality of the team leader you work under. As management doesn't seem to push out poor quality team leaders, its your roll of the dice. – less
