A great company to work with

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at HNTB Companies full-time for more than 5 years

ProsColleagues are open-minded, collaborative, sharing work. The company actively provide tailored training to help professional career growth. The company has developed mature culture and standards of performance that greatly help the efficiency and help employees identify the responsibilities.

ConsThe lay-offs can be scary: some day when you come to work, your next cubicle coworker could have disappeared because of layoff. The laid off only have two hours to get personal stuff, without any advanced notice.

Be open to constant change and you will reap the rewards

GIS Analyst (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

I have been working at HNTB Companies

ProsMultiple opportunities for training.
Teamwork and chemistry are essential for this company, therefore its a group decision in the interview process.
Skills learned here often lead to bigger paychecks at your next job

ConsThe department is largely dependent on outside politics.
Salary is sometimes lower than similar positions elsewhere (though they are flexible some situations)

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more vocal as far as long term goals.
Be more proactive as far as finding projects.
Try to insulate the group from outside politics (though this is probably impossible)

Interesting and nice place to work

Intern (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at HNTB Companies

ProsNice people. Interesting projects. Lots of lunches provided by company. Company cars. Lots of work when there was work. A lot of driving.

ConsGot laid off due to not securing enough work. Large boss basically accused me of lying to him, and I still think he thinks I was lying, i.e. incident was never really resolved.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up your are doing a good job. Possibly consider doing more team oriented events and company functions when reasonable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Growth Opportunity Limited by Economy

Group Director (Former Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I worked at HNTB Companies

ProsHNTB provides above market compensation and opportunity to grow in a positive marketplace, but in an economic downturn employment decisions are based on the bottom line.

ConsEmployment decisions are based on time on job and economic drivers to the bottom line, not necessarily what is best for the future of the organization.
