I worked at HNTB Companies

Pros

When left to the job, things were great but when senior management gi=ot involved, it was all about the bottom line and how to make them look good

Cons

senior leadership is just lost. Good people are let go if they are threatening or are not just yes men. It is all about the bottom line. It is never about the companmy's main assets, its people. Senior leadership are a protected class if they go along but watch out if you rock the boat.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

MAnagement needs to read the number of comments that say the same thing. It is a good company in spite of management. People are the assets. They need a voice and a direcction that makes sense. Too many pets and pet projects.

    Good company with very strong attention to bottom line - good for share value but can be tough.

    I worked at HNTB Companies

    Pros

    Logical and competent with strong business sense. Some very competent engineers in all areas of expertise. The company is very good at getting new work.

    Cons

    If you are on overhead (not chargeable) you will not be around too long. This is a consequence of being commercially driven so it is the reverse side of having rigid performance rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too focussed on US market because it is a known commodity. This made sense for a long time but a big company needs to spread its wings and get the benefits of diversity. Too timid even for Canada!!!!!
