    Approves of CEO

    I worked at HOK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly Lunch & Learns (free food!), monthly office gatherings (free alcohol!), Wellness Week (complimentary massage and acupuncture twice a month), pretty decent office space (NYC office) located across the street from Bryant Park. Oh and they have HOK Volleyball and Softball teams.

    Cons

    Micromanagement by Administrative Supervisor, disorganization with regard to meeting coordination and less than stellar salary w/ expensive health benefits. Also, quite a bit of "cliqueyness" amongst certain staff. I felt like I was in high school a lot of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the "little guy". We matter too.
