I worked at HNTB Companies full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Benefits are ok, pay rate is decent

Cons

No annual review despite mentions of it. Constant revolving door of management changes. No support if you are a victim of abuse at the client site (which I was)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some competent people and treat them with respect. Support your consultants and don't just throw them under the bus to keep a valuable contract. There were so many conflicts of interest at the client site in the project I was assigned to that it's disgusting. I believe I was let go because individuals were afraid I would be a whistleblower. STEER CLEAR of this messed up company! They will not support you or help you and they will leave your high and dry at the worst possible time.

    I worked at HNTB Companies

    Pros

    Great people to work with, extremely professional

    Cons

    overly conservative, poor communication from executive level. Executive level disconnected from rest of firm and don't have a good understanding of the value that is there. Over attention to short term bottom line has caused them to discard some of the very assets that made HNTB stand out among it competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the people below. The decentralized organization of the company in which the executives are not in the same location as the nerve center of the company is a big disadvantage to both executive and employee.
