Pros

HNTB used to be a great company to work for. Their vision and 4 for 4 is brilliant and motivating. Some of the projects are engaging and enjoyable.

Cons

Upper management are money hogs. They hog the billable hours and make the frontline employees scrounge for hours to justify their timecards. HNTB really rips you off in the end. Within your first year, you get all the praise and glory but then you get pushed aside later in your career. Senior management are not honest with their employees which results in low morale. Many of these employees are very unhappy because their arms are tied behind their backs. No matter how hard you work, they give you a very small raise. They milk you for every information to make themselves look better then lay you off. The worst part, HNTB promotes you to your desired position then they take it away giving the excuse that they had to do this because of 'economics'.

Advice to Management

Many upper management are making six figure incomes and wonder why they have to lay off many people. I suggest you take a cut in your pay to share the wealth to others. Don't favor certain employees- treat everyone equal.

    Pros

    Pay is decent Allowed to expense alcohol when traveling. Get your own laptop to bring to home. Get to do just about anything you want. Good at water resources

    Cons

    Wild and careless project managers in the federal technology department. Lack of trust in upper management. Every project is always a chaotic mess with constant budget issues. Much better project management is needed.

    Advice to Management

    The Technology department in HNTB Federal is lacking project management. BASE4D was a great opportunity that was ruined by wild and crazy management. Good employees are being let go because of the lack of work resulting from wild and crazy management.
