    I worked at HNTB Companies as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    All of the people I worked with in Kansas City and talked to around the country were incredible and passionate about their work. I loved being in that atmosphere daily.

    Cons

    The leadership of the company isn't stable and isn't always transparent. There are nuances it took me a year to notice, but negativity toward the leadership was definitely obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees. Do a bit more traveling and understand why they work for you in the first place.

    Pros

    Company is the leader in Electronic Toll Collection consulting services and is held in high regard by the entire industry.

    Cons

    Indoctrination and training of new employees into the company could be improved with a formal process that explains the company's reporting and accounting requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish goals and provide sufficient training to new employees so they completely understand the inner workings of the company before placing in live environment.

    I have been working at HNTB Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong push for client focus
    Many high performers working together for a common goal
    Strong push for additional sales

    Cons

    May be difficult to distinguish yourself
    Company seems to be trying to find its way in the Design-Build realm. Can't decide if it wants to be on the owner side, or the contractor side and keeps spending money trying to figure it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training for employees.
    Keep people in the know.

    I have been working at HNTB Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Managers alllow me to do my job with limited supervision. I work with lots of employees who have been with the company 20 plus years and would never think of working anywhere else.

    Cons

    You are expected to work hard which sometimes means long hours, but most of our employees are paid overtime even if they are exempt status so it totally makes it worth the effort.

    I worked at HNTB Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HNTB pays very well and is pro-active in pursuing large projects. They are usually very accommodating to special family circumstances.

    Cons

    Local offices are not allowed to pursue smaller projects even when core clients ask them to. By July the budgets for office parties or activities is gone and there is an incredible push on local management to have everyone working on a project, or staying home. By January 1 everything is good again, until the next July.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take all of the profits and pay it in huge salaries to upper management, instead of keeping the worker bees busy and employed.

    Cons

    Some of the people seem to be out for themselves, but not all.

    Appreciate the engineers who are actually doing the work.

    Pros

    Good benefits and yearly salary evaluations.

    Cons

    The company limits itself to Only National projects. It seems they have had solid results in house. No or limited international exposure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smaller projects fill the gap while the mega projects are on the list to come.
