No opinion of CEO

I worked at HNTB Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The projects are some of the best projects to work on and are very interesting. Even professional employees can get straight-time over-time for any hours over 40 hours if approved by manager.

Cons

No mentor-ship program, no program to help employees grow, benefits are not good. I was asked to work on projects with tight or non-existent budgets and asked not to bill (ie work on my own time) and since it was not billed, that time is not recognized by management.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience, if you're already very experienced they will bring you in as an AVP or above, those people have amazing incentives.

    Cons

    No career path, people will not correct issues, ineffective management, not willing to pay for experience. Managers just keeps their heads down so they can collect a paycheck and not be bothered. Trying to change the status quo here is the kiss of death. Ever seen Mad Men? Yeah.....

    Advice to Management

    Quit reorganizing the company every 8-12 months (this happened for 4 years in a row). Fire people that are ineffective, I think the only place where it is harder to be let go would be a government position.
