    I worked at The Mason & Hanger Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Pay is good for the area -The company policy of flexible work time is nice -Relatively frequent travel is required, so if you like travel, you will have the opportunity to do it here -Overtime is paid for

    Cons

    I was in the EE department as a engineer-in-training. I will preface this by saying, A/E is not the career for me. I found the work repetitive, boring, and unsatisfactory. That said I will base this review on the experience of working there, not the actual work there. I will also note that I left of my own volition to pursue better opportunities. My manager was small-minded, racist, and bigoted. As a white male, in a group full of only white males, I felt it hard to go to the HR manager about this, but on road trips, in weekly meetings, and in general interaction, there was a habit of commentary on his part that was offensive and unacceptable in a modern work place. From a work perspective, the company operates on a pseudo-contract basis. Employees charge time to specific projects (all military) and each employee had a minimum of 2-3 projects, and sometimes many more. However, as a new employee, I often had no work. It was my manager's goal to have me work with a specific Professional Engineer (PE), but I discovered later that this PE hoarded his work in an effort to make himself appear more indispensable. This in turn made it appear that I was a slacker, and forced me to charge 'unassigned' time on my timesheet. When I went to the department manager repeatedly for work, I was turned away. However, said manager often insisted I not charge unassigned, trying to force me to charge to government projects even though no work was being done. Creativity in billing was encouraged throughout my time at the company. One "pro" of the company was the flexible work policy, but the policy itself required manager approval in advance, and regular hours had to be posted. It was not a "work your 40 hours and go home" policy. On multiple occasions I was accosted for showing up late by 15 minutes (7:45 am instead of 7:30 am). There was an expectation, though, that employees would take on overtime work, but if you were 15 minutes late, you were admonished. Other cons: -No sick leave, inflexible vacation limits -No training opportunities whatsoever
