Very driven environment, to a fault sometimes
Senior Staff Geologist (Current Employee) –  Doylestown, PASeptember 20, 2018
Langan can be a whirlwind of good and bad from the same source. The driving force is the mission of the company which means when the work is flowing and your head is focused and in the game, it is an awesome place to work. If you are not driven or 100% on the same page with the leadership for personal, professional, or various other reasons, you can get lost in the surging tide. The communication lines are often very open and feedback is usually very welcomed.
Pros
Lunch with trainings, compensation and healthcare is good, driven and stimulating environment
Cons
metrics based, non-profitable contributions can be overlooked, burn-out for newer staff can be a challenge.

A Great Company and Workplace Environment
Sr. Project Accounting Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 27, 2018
There is really no critique that I have for this company. I wish there was a little more room for growth however I think everyone has that same desire hence some times it is time to find that growth elsewhere. This is a great company to work for and is a great culture there.

Great People
Mobile LiDAR Specialist (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJJune 15, 2018
The Langan family is very welcoming. Great place to get started with a career. Mid-level professionals may find it a bit confining in terms of upward growth. Promotions and salary bumps are based on years of service in the company, not years of experience.

Empty promises and scapegoat mentalities
Staff Geologist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 10, 2018
Worked for Socal office for a few years. Definitely feast or famine. Prepare for weeks at a time where there is no work. Then prepare to be away weeks at a time being worked like a dog. Prepare to be blamed for mangements inability to bring in work. Office is cold, no one speaks to one another. Folks will throw you under the bus in a heart beat. Project managers make unethical decisions making staff uncomfortable. Lack of cross training. Use of personal vehicle majority of time. Very stressful and unsatisfiable work. Trust me, look at another company.
Pros
End of year bonus - maybe
Cons
Lack of satisfying work, cold office, terrible management

no work-life balance
Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Elmwood Park, NJMay 16, 2018
enjoyed most people I worked with, the jobs that we got to bring along were exciting and challenging, and opportunities existed to continue learning...however, if you want to remember what your family looks like it's a rough gig. Hopefully in the 9 years since I've been here they've improved that fact.
Pros
compensated well
Cons
no life

Nice office environment
Fall Intern (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 11, 2018
Nice office, but field work could be tough. Sometimes you are required to work in tough environmental conditions, but that is expected in this type of field.

Summer Intern
Co-op Site/ Civil Engineer (Former Employee) –  Elmwood Park, NJJanuary 31, 2018
I had a great experience working as an intern. Education was great, learning autocad and other software, and you're slowly eased into the water getting harder and harder projects. Great challenge.
Pros
great projects to work on with great people to work with
Cons
no windows where I sat.

If you like being worked like a dog, you will do great at this company
Staff Geologist (Former Employee) –  californiaJanuary 10, 2018
This company is feast or famine. There will be weeks where you will have no work at all and then there will be weeks where they work you like a dog. Management excepts you to always be billable (which is impossible a lot of the times). The office environment is cold and if not non-existent, they discourages socializing with your coworkers. Departments discourages cross-training.
Pros
Benefits are great
Cons
management doesn't know how to manage. Toxic work enviroment!!!

sweatshop
Senior Staff Engineer (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, NJDecember 3, 2017
Sweatshop summaries it all. You will be burned with overlapping deadlines and overwhelming workload. The company has a high multiplier and pays good year end bonuses but the overtime on many projects is not paid due to low balling during proposal stage to win the work.

no balance
Manager (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 26, 2017
too many chiefs that micro manage. work life balance not fair, too many silos and not quick to respond. too many managers worried about their own bonuses to put the firm goals first.

Love working at Langan they treat the employees very well.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Elmwood Park, NJApril 7, 2014
I want to relocate to GA because it is getting very expensive to live up north most importantly the housing situation. The rents are very expensive and the crime is getting worst especially in Paterson, NJ. I love where I work I just wished I could take my company and move it to ATL and that would make me very very happy. Praying on it though never know. God has the last say so!
Pros
Bonuses and Raises yearly.
