Cool place
Water and Sediment Quality Associate (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaJanuary 12, 2019
Cool place, good projects, and decent management. Very flexible hours, but at times the amount of work can be daunting. They invest in their employs, but definitely a "big firm" to work for. Not the greatest benefits, but compensation is adequate.

Little chance for advancement
Senior Technical Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Alexandria, VAMay 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....

Great place to work with no benefits
Senior Archaeological Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 5, 2017
I love my job. It has allowed me to travel, see new places, and work for some amazing people. There is no job security whatsoever, and there is no room for growth within the company. They do not provide any benefits for their employees, and most of the work is manual labor, outside with exposure to the elements, what ever they may be. The management I worked under are amazing, and they do what they can to help out and make sure everyone has what they need to fulfill the tasks at hand. I have also made some great friends while working for Michael Baker. It is their policies dealing with the well-being of their employees that has lead me to find other employment.

Management was lacking and staff conflict was poorly resolved
Senior Biologist/Environmental Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CA 95670August 23, 2018
Office culture was horrific. Staff conflict was poorly resolved if at all. Workload guidance was completely lacking. Performance benchmarks were not clearly outlined. Overall a very poor place to work.

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.

Productive and exciting place to work.
Senior Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Township of Moon, PAJune 6, 2017
Fast paced, productive, ever changing work environment, full benefits.
A typical day starts with uncertainty that new issue will come up for a solution. It makes every day interesting,
Management listens and responds with positive actions.
Culture is cooperation in project efforts.
Hardest part is keeping track of and meeting multiple, changing project deadlines.
Project meetings with good food and, choice of free coffee everyday.
Pros
Free lunches and coffee
Cons
Multiple and changing deadlines

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

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

layoffs, unpredictable work load any given day or night
