Architectural Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 18, 2019
The environment seemed very professional; however, there were no opportunities for me to be challenged as an intern. I did have one project I worked on, but did not have much feedback on the project.

Good company.
Project Geotechnical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 25, 2018
Good company with opportunities to learn and advance. They promote attending conferences and other training. As with most consulting there is pressure to be "chargeable" which can make the job stressful not only when you are very busy, but when times are slower.

Orientation and effort to integrate new employees was lacking
Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Camp Hill, PASeptember 13, 2018
The business line I joined did not have a very good program for integrating new employees when I started there. I am sure that is not the case for all the business lines, but if you take a job with them be very insistent in getting them to explain how the business line is structure, who has responsibility for what, who is the most experience in the various sub-disciplines and skills, and who are the resources you can use to execute work. By the time I left they were developing resource and skill matrices.

Most who I met there were very technically skilled and/or good project managers. Some were poor at defining the scope of work though. Some of the older managers in the business line I joined were not very good with people. I did not chose whom to take advice from wisely. If you take a position with them, I hope you have better luck.
Pros
Reputable Firm, Technically Sound, Great Benefits
Cons
Some Inexperienced or Poor Managers of People

very structured in highway
Senior CADD Technician (Former Employee) –  Camp Hill, PAAugust 7, 2018
Gannett Fleming had a very structured atmosphere. There was alot of stress due to fast tracking alot of projects. Alot of the engineers were nice, but due to the structure, alot of people were ousted from the groups that were made. If you could handle that type of atmosphere, This would be the company for you.
Pros
you are always busy, and the training is very good
Cons
there is a hierarchy that gets followed

Regional IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Suffolk, VAMay 28, 2018
This company has moved a couple of times. The leadership was fantastic to begin with, leading the company in the right direction. After some downsizing promises were broke and positions handed to people that had no knowledge of the job they were just handed.

The benefits are excellent and the people are very helpful as well as genuine.

Good people to work with, but job security is weak
CONSTRUCTION MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 9, 2018
This is a good place to work for if they have enough work to keep you busy. I was laid off due to not having enough work. They give you the chance to develop your skills and better yourself.

Decent multi-discipline engineering firm growing too fast
CADD OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Audubon, PAFebruary 28, 2018
Gannett Fleming was at its finest as a niche transit & rail design firm, consulting for major railroads primarily in the northeastern US. As the firm has expanded, the relationship from management on down has changed, and the culture has become a bit more robotic.
Pros
Salary & benefits

Good place to work if you're privilaged
Construction Specialist (Current Employee) –  Audubon, PAFebruary 12, 2018
If you're just starting out this is a good place to get started but after you've been there a while you might have better luck for upward movement or better pay by moving on to somewhere else. There is a lack of work delegated properly.

People are Great
Administrative (Current Employee) –  Valley Forge, PAFebruary 9, 2018
The culture is not great, no communication between management and regular staff. Organization plan is very confusing.

Management egos need to be left at the door and they actually need to communicate to staff on status of project and other company information.
Pros
Great people, good pay
Cons
Take advantage of staff, Don't like regular staff standing up to management, Too much of a "company man" complex.
