Pros

Some unique and interesting projects if you are lucky enough to work on one of them. Design level is not what it used to be. Colleagues are friendly. International staff with varied backgrounds.

Cons

Layoffs are sporadic but when they happen, they appear to affect the staff who work the longer hours and those who have been their the longest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the staff and implement policy that benefits the whole company, not just the upper management. Stop taking away benefits that matter to people in order to make more profits. Happy people are better for the future of the company.

    Pros

    The company has a stong structure for the project, employee.
    Even in a bad economy, they try to keep the employee as much as they could.

    Cons

    Team shifting is hard to happen. So, if you have bad relationship with your senior, you have to move out to another company.

    HOK is a great place to put on your resume, not a great place to grow your career.

    Pros

    Respectable company with a long history as an industry leader.

    Cons

    The "Good Old Boy System" of upper management prevails here. Be sure to be overworked and under compensated. Office politics will always have you guessing weather or not you are being phased out of your position. At HOK, you are a job title to meet the bottom line, not a individual who is accurately judged on performance. Great place for old + tired industry leaders come to get paid out through retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire young industry leaders who have current knowledge of technology and innovation. Promote and respect those who have made it possible for your success.
