    Pros

    Great projects and people. Great place to start an engineering career with plenty of opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Slow and steady growth is too predictable. Typical to work above paygrade with minimal acknowledgment and financial incentive. Woohoo, might be invited to ownership if I stay here for 20 years!

    I worked at Magnusson Klemencic Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting projects. Talented people, and research is encouraged. Profit-sharing and bonus structures are good. Good career options once you have their name on your resume.

    Cons

    Severe work-life balance issues. Single engineers in their 20s can stay until 11 PM on a regular basis. That doesn't work for most parents, and they don't pay enough so that the second parent can stay at home. Low pay, substandard benefits. Very few women in leadership. Lots of talk about having a great culture, but no work goes into improving it.

    Pros

    Benefits, profit sharing, and projects. Being apart of some of the biggest projects that are being built and seeing how they are designed.
