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

Pros

HDR takes good care of it's employees. It is a very active environment, busy, interesting work. The people are highly motivated, successful, and supportive. Given HDR's national/ international status, relocation is available as well as temp work assignments throughout the US. HDR is very supportive of education, self improvement, and also provides extensive in-house training and certification.

Cons

Frankly, nothing comes to mind. I had a great experience at HDR, Inc. The only drawback is that HDR primarily works on public funded projects, or very large scale private, (hospitals, buildings, etc.), so when public work slows, so does the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    Not the best experience, overall, central leadership is out of touch with regional conditions.

    Pros

    Can have exciting projects, when office actually has projects.

    Cons

    Decision to layoff half of our office was made at corporate headquarters with little input form local leadership. DId not take the time to really look at who did what at local office, and who had value beyond what they were being told. Did not take into account past contributions of people like myself who had travelled every week at times for the good of the company and projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really try to understand how conditions may be different in one region to another. Understand the difference between long-term engineering contracts which will be highly profitable and architecture contracts which might be only break-even in this tough market. Also don't layoff people right before the holidays with no insurance, and not even one week severance per year they worked for you!
