Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – July 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.
Flexibility to work at home, remote corporate support
cube land office layout. Too much reliance on remote communications.
Field personnel (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 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
Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) – Alexandria, VA – May 21, 2018
I work as a technical project manager. Most of coworkers are super nice. But some people who want to get ahead do so by backstabbing the other more qualified team members. Little chance for advancement....
Company Transitioning // Moving in right direction
DirectorClient Services (Current Employee) – PA – October 5, 2017
Company transitioning from public to private, creating a constrained working environment at times. Culture more "me-centric" than team centric. Great people work at Baker, management variable - good/not-so good -- by office and department.

Project Manager / Geologist (Former Employee) – Township of Moon, PA – September 14, 2017
Very professional organization and staff. They do good work and pleasant to work there for 20 years. poor management decisions led to loosing govt and big contracts which led to my layoff and dismissal.
FIELD TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 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.
Good benefits, flexible schedule, the work is not complicated
layoffs, unpredictable work load any given day or night
Local office has challenges in a highly competitive environment. Nationally - top of the line folks.
Planning and Environmental Lead (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO – July 20, 2017
While the local office has a challenge in the highly competitive Denver market, it has an excellent staff of talented and productive workers. Nationally - the company has excellent quals and produces top level work products.
