Great Company IF YOU'RE A ELDERLY WHITE Guy! Otherwise, forget moving up.

Pros

HNTB is fairly close to my home. Parking is pretty good for a company located near downtown KC. Oh and the receptionist is very nice.

Cons

HNTB is the least diverse employer I have ever had the honor of working for. From Harvey to three levels below him... all employees are elderly white guys. This is not an exaggeration, this is not hyperbole... There is a cast iron ceiling at this company.

Advice to Management

Either evolve to reflect the American population or PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF HNTB'S FUTURE... RETIRE! There is great talent that you look down upon, explore elevating some of this talent to look across from you... or go the way of the dinosaurs.

    Pros

    Multiple 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Be 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)

    Pros

    The managers at HNTB will let you develop as much as you are willing to take initiative. You have the opportunity to work on some of the most innovative and largest projects in the country and with some of the best people. Compensation, benefits, and personal opportunities for growth are some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager, there may be a lack of communication or development. However, if you take initiative and talk to your manager about where you want your career to go, then you will be given these opportunities. In the recent past there have been some layoffs, but nothing out of line with what the rest of the industry (or any industry in the US) has experienced over the last few years during the Great Recession.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the big picture, which is sustainable, profitable growth. Don't worry so much about TOJ and focus more on sales. Sales has a tendency to cure a lot of the problems where TOJ problems starts to arise.
