Pros

Really interesting and complex projects. They have plenty of work and have been stable for the last few years.

Cons

They can't manage their resources and have people doing the work of 2-3 people, then beat you up for your work not coming out perfect. They stress credentials and continuing education, but there's no time to do it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan the resources before you take on the work.

    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.
