Company not worth investing into, No Leadership. Misleading
Senior Piping Designer (Former Employee) –  Marcus Hook, PAAugust 19, 2016
Company failed in all aspects to communicate and connect to employer concerns and needs.

Lacking any type of project investment with the exception of non productive Home Office employees that had to be billable from the hard work of others.

Management was the worst I have experienced in my years of being in the industry.

Bad additude which was lead by bad leadership.

Awful leadership, no strategy, Missing professional engineers
IV&V engineer now working in GE Hitachi Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAJanuary 7, 2014
Any smart person can dupe the senior management because they are not professional engineers.
You can sign their NDA and then resign and join their customer, Guaranteed you would not be sued because the Senior management would not like to show/discuss their own dirty linen in court.
They spend time on exercises that have no benefit.
They support work product that is not complete or correct
They have no future plan because they made a horrible mess of a major foreign customer project.
They are extremely unreliable, liars, short sighted.
They provide no job security and use intimidation tactics.

("They" = Altrans Senior Management)

opportunities for advancement for "yes-people" and "good soldiers" who never speak up or attempt to contribute.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Awful leadership, no strategy, no vision, poor communication, management through fear and intimidation, CYA culture and toxic environment

Horrible place
Validation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Norcross, GASeptember 26, 2013
A place to learn and exercise politics. Good teachers and students.
The management treats engineers - key contributors to the project as dirt, but bill customer over $100 an hour. The trouble monster project has wasted huge resources and $$$ and continues. No policy and procedure, someone’s communication is the rule and frequently changes. Engineers quit or going to leave, a number of testing leads/managers were executed in three years. If you submit resignation letter, preparing leaving right away! The customer is extremely mad.
Pros
No
Cons
A lot
