Operations

Louis Berger builds in many war-torn nations and developing countries. The company reconstructed bridges in Serbia, built police stations in Bosnia and Kosovo, and constructed the Kabul-Kandahar Highway, which links major cities in Afghanistan. In Iraq, Louis Berger has built transportation and communication infrastructure, in addition to hospitals, schools, courts, and police stations.

The company's work in war zones recently came under fire after a whistleblower notified the government that Louis Berger's management was cheating on contracts.  In 2011 the former CEO of the Louis Berger Group, Derish Wolf, was charged for overbilling the US government for contract work in overseas war zones. In 2010 the firm paid more than $69 million to settle a civil suit related to the alleged fraud.

Ownership

The Louis Berger Group was founded in 1953 by the late Dr. Louis Berger. It is among a family of 10 firms that make up Berger Group Holdings.

Assistant Project Manager, New York, NY - December 5, 2014
You are hired for a specific project and when the project is over (or you sneeze in the wrong direction), you are let go if there isn't another project to go to. There is no such thing as going back to the main office to help out in other departments--i.e. help out the estimating department. Also, there is no opportunity to move up while you are on a project. If you are hired as an Assistant PM, you will stay an APM for the life of the project--the client asked for an APM at $xx/hour and the client won't pay an increased billing rate for a promoted employee. It was quite frustrating to know there was no promotional opportunity on my multi-year project.
