    I worked at HNTB Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at HNTB Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    People you work with, benefits

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless, too many engineer running the company and not enough business people, no accountability for middle to upper managers, my manager was never around didn't no what I did, it's like working for a comany from the 1950's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a mandatory retirement age for executives. Change is good especially with the CEO currently in place.
