Pros

The HGI energy group does a great job attracting good engineers and designers. I really enjoyed working with my peers during my time there.

Cons

The project management is completely out of touch with the real work being done. Further, the management structure is setup to make it impossible to get everyone working with the same tools and with consistent, quality review. Further, the scheduling of projects often creates unrealistic client expectations and/or artificial work crunches. Please note this only applies to the Energy division where I worked. I have the impression other divisions are managed much better.

Advice to Management

Senior discipline engineers who review everything going out the door are desperately needed. A consistent, quality project management program needs to be put in place where engineering has input starting at the proposal stage.

    Pros

    The company has been around 40 years. That's pretty amazing. There are a lot of "old ways" but things are changing for the good (opportunities for staff, focus on training and development, more communication across offices). Benefits are good. Employees own part of the company, so everyone is a shareholder. Because of that, there are additional perks for employees if the company is profitable.

    Cons

    Communication. It's getting better but could still be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your direct reports regularly, especially if they are in different offices. Communicate more often, especially company-wide changes.
