Network Engineer (Former Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – 3 May 2017
Gannett Fleming used to be a great place to work until the new CIO came on board a few years ago. One of the first things he did was fire a guy who had been with the company for over 25 years. He said it was a "cost-cutting measure" but really it was because he likes to surround himself with sycophants.
Anytime there is a major infrastructure project, instead of providing training to the employees so they can learn and grow professionally the job gets outsourced to a consulting firm.
In the 15 years I was there, I only had two weeks of IT training. When I pressed the CEO on the issue, the solution was a 6 week trial license for web based training which was essentially someone narrating Powerpoint slides. Really that was the best they could do.
When I asked the CIO if I could shadow others in the department so I could learn other technologies he flat out said "NO." So instead of increasing my wealth to the company I was left to sit there doing nothing all day everyday since there was no other work to do.
If you're a motivated individual that wants to grow in your career and learn new technologies then Gannett Fleming is definitely not the place for you. If you want to stagnate and become unemployable elsewhere then definitely consider this place.
Project Controls/Scheduling Specialist (Former Employee) – Mill Valley, CA – 14 March 2017
Management is not supportive of its employees. After 2 weeks I developed a sound project schedule and brought the project back to the baseline milestones. As a result, the company was lifted of performance probation.

Electrical Designer (Former Employee) – Mount Laurel – 8 October 2015
Gannett Fleming is a company that values its employees. Management respects work/life balance as project scheduling permits. It became apparent, having worked there that employees are truly valued as people, not as a resource. Benefits are good, and pay is good. GF has in-house training that is nicely organized and implemented. This company really has its act together.
Read my review, and look foward to an interview with them
Regional IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Suffolk, VA – 9 April 2013
I was told by an employee that Gannett Fleming would not "fire" me but make it VERY difficult to work there.
micro management, lack of direction, reprimanded for rules that did not exist, tracked like a hunting dog, was told to resign or management would make my life a living hell, used to have good medical benefits - but not anymore.
CADD Technician (Former Employee) – Clearfield, PA – 16 September 2012
I absolutely loved my job here. I was devastated when my job was eliminated. My co-workers became my other family and I miss them every day. Anytime I needed to leave for one of my kids school events I was always allowed to make up my hours during the week (unless we were on a deadline then I didn't ask to leave).
trying to find something productive to do when there was no work.
