Pros

The SEE&I division has a variety of architecture and engineering projects. They work with on federal (DoD & GSA) projects, state government projects, and private sector projects. The projects are commercial, industrial, institutional and multi-unit residential buildings, civil works, and DoD specific projects.

Cons

The quality of a project is not a top concern. Management would rather blame all of the design professionals on a given project for an error rather than address the source of the error. Project managers are more converned about the ease of reporduction rather than following the engineering licensure laws and regulations of the various states. They are seen as "helpful suggestions" which can be ignored when inconvient. Management is unwilling to adress personnel who do not meet the standard of care for their profession and constantly produce documents which have errors and/or are unbildable. Management does not communicate with the professionals producing the designs until there are cost overruns or design errors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take resposibility for your design contracts. Do nit just keep incompetnet people because you need a warm body to produce work. Value the professionals who do a good job instead of treating them like a inconivent number.

    Pros

    Very well managed company with strong ethical commitment.
    Raises reflect a commitment towards the stronger workers.
    Management is caring towards primary workforce.
    Support towards continuing education is impeccable.

    Cons

    Bonuses are few and far between.
    Company organized training at remote locations is non-existent.
    Contract reviews and write-ups need a more organized arena of workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have a healthy respect for the company. It seems to really care for the people that work for it. The contract submittable process needs a better review in order to achieve the final goal of award. If contracts are not better reviewed for possible issues then the company loses out on valuable revenue.
