      Pros

      McElhanney is filled with great people who are great to work with. Consulting is a challenging field of work, but made much more enjoyable by very helpful and conscientious coworkers. Additionally, as an engineer there have been many opportunities for growth and a good deal of personal agency.

      Cons

      Work-life balance can occasionally take a hit, especially during the busy construction season.
