Good place to work
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Long Beach, CAJuly 16, 2018
Congenial and positive work atmosphere in open "cube land." Good mix of younger and seasoned professionals, in a diverse culture. My team rarely worked in the office at the same time, and most communications are by email and sometimes phone. Meet as a group once or twice a month.
Pros
Flexibility to work at home, remote corporate support
Cons
cube land office layout. Too much reliance on remote communications.

Poor management and poor communication
Field personnel (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 30, 2018
No communication between field personnel and management! Flying by the seat of their pants mentality! Hiring people for projects that they haven’t been awarded yet! Certain projects aren’t being ran like they should be. Always blaming instead of encouraging their employees. No oversight whatsoever
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Terrible management. No communication

Construction Inspector II (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, ARMarch 22, 2018

FIELD TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAAugust 10, 2017
I'm currently a field technician for the engineering side of Michael Baker, so a typical day at work is "on site" , inspecting incoming and outgoing trucks that are hauling water for local fracking and drills. Expect to work 3-4 days a week, work every other weekend (3 day weekends), 12 hours a day, and drive to work sites in Washington county.
Pros
Good benefits, flexible schedule, the work is not complicated
Cons
layoffs, unpredictable work load any given day or night
