Company has evolved from great place to work to a sweat shop focused on pushing ESOP price.

Civil Engineering (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

ProsGood place to learn ropes and network with clients and other engineering sub-consultants

Opportunity to work on diverse and large mega trasnportation projects

ConsCompany is way conservative in business practices and is extremely averse to risk.

HNTB tried to play in the federal market sandbox and it did not turn out well since they would not open offices overseas (except for Guam which is not really a true office) and did not understand how to perform work for Federal govt in an efficient manner.

Board of Directors is only concerned about pushing ESOP stock price higher. Board of Directors is setting up golden parachutes for the senior management and little guys will be left holding the bag.

Advice to Senior ManagementHNTB is in danger of becoming a mom & pop engineering shop while the Walmarts, Kmarts, and Targets (Engineering company giants) of the world continue to grow. The Boards inactions and refusal to commit to becoming an international player will in the end doom the company to mediocrity.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
