Good place to either begin or end a career, but run by nepotism
Surveyor (Current Employee) – Americas – July 31, 2017
The company has a number of great benefits and the compensation is good as long as there are customers willing to pay the special attendance fee rates because that's how surveyors make overtime. The scenery tends to change; if you prove you can work productively, you generally are allowed to do so on your own with little oversight; and it's a great place to break into several different engineering roles. However, management is painfully aloof to most employees, and upward movement is completely dependent on one's relationship with executives. They are generally unwilling to provide training opportunities because that means a surveyor is not billable, and profits go down, which is a strange thing for a non-profit to worry about. Also, ever since management began pegging everything to the key performance indicators (KPIs) the culture as a whole has become unhappy and...corporate.
Flexible hours, health benefits, and compensation
Aloof management, poor career growth, and unhappy workplace culture.
