I think we took too much time off work while work needed to be done.
Foreman/Operator (Former Employee), Stokesdale, NCOctober 16, 2013
Pros: close to home and good pay
Cons: not working full weeks when weather permitted
They are an out of town company. They took too much time off work due to weather when other things could have been done. I have been on job sites for over 25 years and can look ahead and tell what needs to be done. I feel like the hardest part of the job was not working when things could have been done in other areas such as erosion control and hammering – more... rock. The best part of the job was that it was a thirty minute drive from home. – less

Some great people but horrible management
Senior Engineer (Current Employee), SeattleAugust 17, 2013
Pros: clean office, free coffee
Cons: senior management, direction, focus, message clarity, etc. etc. etc.
There are many great people here but senior management and genuine staff support are lacking. Corporate claims are one thing, some offices are probably much better, but practice in this office is something entirely different - the importance of people is not understood. Management is dysfunctional.

Needs new leadership
Senior Executive (Former Employee), EASJanuary 18, 2013
Cons: no advancement.
Company buys small local firms then uses resources to make local presence. Does not follow through on marketing efforts.
Downturn handle poorly. Layoffs at any downturn.
Company culture and values opposite of marketing on website.
They promise rewards for excellence, but fail to execute. Expendable even after exceptional continual meeting of quotas, – more... deadlines, client feed back, margins and successful projects. – less

Worst place I've worked and I have 20 years of experience.
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee), New YorkJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: facilities are nice, talented architects and engineers
Cons: lack of adequate management, poor operations, all about the numbers
Good pay, great office facility and physical amenities but that's it. Endless Internal financial accountability to the point where no work is getting done. Incredibly talented staff, stifled by lackluster operational structure and poorly trained management, mainly in place due to attrition. Good design takes a back seat to a good quarterly report. Lack – more... of adequate backlog in the buildings group. Firm hires employees away from stable companies and positions within other firms by enticing with high wages but drops employees quickly regardless of promises or performance. A revolving door of highly qualified but lower quartile performers (sales) are dropped regularly. Be prepared to sell or be laid off regardless of your position. – less

Worst company/work place I have Ever worked for
Environmental planner (Former Employee), Boulder, ColoradoNovember 4, 2012
Pros: dog friendly
Cons: management, work model, endless internal financial reports
In my 17 years as an environmental professional this is the worst place I ever worked (I lasted 9 months in the Boulder office). Consulting is a tough world, but I had terrible management, work load issues and no support from other staff. You are basically a consultant witin the company who needs to find their own work within the conpany. This leads – more... to constant uncertainty. This model is similar to Ch2mhill (Bellevue Wa) office-terrible model for business. – less

Pros: good benefits
Cons: poor management
- Not a place to grow - Management controlling of work and very slow to search for new work or maintain good working relations with current clients. When work gets low - you get screwed
