Pros

Good pay and benefits
Fast paced environment
Good technology to work with.
Good food during meetings

Cons

No communication from upper management
A very closed door, anti social cubicle environment.
Company makes promises to clients that it cannot make.
Projects are always over budget, not on time, and of poor quality.
No long term planning.
No feasibility studies done during project planning.
No project management.
Employees buy alcohol at meals while traveling, then bill it to the client

Advice to Management

HNTB Federal is a failing business. Base4D does not work so don't buy into it. Don't show clients software functionality that will not work when implemented at their site. Cancel projects that are failing. HNTB has no business in the software development industry.

    Pros

    HNTB provides above market compensation and opportunity to grow in a positive marketplace, but in an economic downturn employment decisions are based on the bottom line.

    Cons

    Employment decisions are based on time on job and economic drivers to the bottom line, not necessarily what is best for the future of the organization.
