I worked at HNTB Companies

Pros

Benefits are good. People are talented and work exceptionally hard.

Cons

Poor communication from management to employees. Bad leadership decisions. Use and abuse employees, then RIF 'em when the going (economy) gets rough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate. Manage. Be honest in dealing with employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
