Project Controls Technician (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 21, 2018
Not a bad company to work for. Depending on where you start may be hard to move up. Benefits are good and employee stock program is alright. Work/Life Balance isn't great. Depending on project needs you can end up anywhere.
Great place for career and job knowledge growth. Fair compensation and benefits. Work/life balance is not very good. Expected to put in unpaid time. Overall a pretty good company for someone who is committed to working hard.
Civil Structural Lead Engineer (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 13, 2018
Although some management seems to prefer a specific personality, the company strives for diversity and very much cares about their people. I worked at the KC office where there was free food and drinks sometimes. The salary is great than other top companies and the benefits and culture are amazing.

Service Desk Support Technician (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 22, 2018
New hires work 830-530, eventually you could move to 7-4. Meet with a manager as a team once every 2 weeks. Never see the manager besides that, no calls from manager, occasional email. Manager is fairly hands off, to a fault. Plenty of work to do to smooth out the IT policies as they related to service desk and the work flows, incidents, tasks we deal with. Progress is being made but there is a lot to do and it moves slow.
Work place culture is okay, probably a lot better if you're in engineer (engineering firm). Hardest part of the job is the job itself being on service desk. The most enjoyable part of the job is going home and getting the check.

I have worked here for over 10 years and I can say it’s the best place I have worked. Before I came here I worked at several other firms of various sizes and none of them come close to Burns & McDonnell. Yes it has its warts but they are minor compared to any other places out there.
If you want very good compensation, good benefits, the best retirement in the business and job security then work here.
If you only want to work 8-5 but expect high pay, promotions, etc then don’t work here. There are plenty other firms out there that you can work at with lesser financial rewards and poor job security when the next recession hits.
Cash compensation, Esop, job security
Work-life balance, unqualified management in certain divisions

BMCD is a great place to work if you want a great salary with great bonuses. However, advancement is poor and you really need to know someone to advance. It is very much click oriented, reminds me of High School. Management is much to be desired. PTO is slow to generate.
PTO slow to Generate, management is not that great
Document Control Assistant (Piping Design) (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 27, 2018
Loved the Coworkers and really worked as a team but management truly lacked people skills. The main office is in Kansas City, MO. and we were reminded daily that we were not a part of the (company) and only there to support the staff.
Site Superintendent (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, MO – February 8, 2018
I have been placed at a pharmaceutical lab where they are expanding rapidly. They are anticipating increasing their clean rooms and upgrading the building systems along with adding a 60,000 square foot building on their property. We are currently replacing the entire steam system. We just wrapped up the installation of a new compressed air system. We are also in the process of creating a new clean room and installing a new cream blending process line. I have become very knowledgeable with cGMP requirements for the pharmaceutical industry. My typical day is working with the contractors to keep the projects moving and assisting the construction manager with submittals, requests for quotes, contractor job walks and bid reviews. Many of our projects are Time and material and I have maintain the time records of each contractor and validate every invoice for those projects. The hardest part of the job and most time consuming is posting all the safety reports on the corporate server.
