Current Employee - Senior Design Tech in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Senior Design Tech in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at HOK full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Management gives a lot of responsibility to younger staff.
There is a lot of opportunity to move up in this office and in the company.
Firm genuinely seems to care about your career path and growth.

Cons

Over worked, pulled in too many directions at once.
Weak culture, not a "design" office feel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on staffing better, some projects are heavily staffed and others have almost none.

    I have been working at HOK full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, fairly transparent, flexible work schedule, decent benefits, great staff, good resources (software and hardware), very good support staff, honest management.

    Cons

    A recent struggle to win new work, although that will change soon. Somewhat top heavy in terms of management, bureaucracy can get in the way of progress at times, but it has gotten better. Users get shifted acround quite a bit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep enough production staff on hand so that they don't get burned out. Make project managers b more efficient.

    Former Employee - Designer in New York, NY

    I worked at HOK full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
