I worked at Heery full-time

Pros

Heery has a great many employees that have been with the company over thirty years with some fantastic industry experience. This represents a great learning opportunity for junior staff who seek development. The company has an impressive diversity of services across design, management and construction that position it to compete for large, complex, and sometimes international projects.

Cons

In general, the company has recently seemed fairly conservative in its growth and management strategy - maybe a bit too conservative. The high average tenure and very low turnover at senior management levels suggests that the company's leadership was spending too much time in comfortable routines and patterns and not enough time investing in innovation.

    I have been working at Heery full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Staff. Highly respected in the Construction Industry for Project and Program Management.
    Weathered the economic down turn and become a leaner more focused company.

    Cons

    Slow to more new technology to the field personnel. Travel expenses carried personally until re-embused at minimum 2 weeks. (hard on junior employees)

    Pros

    Competitve salary. Good benefits (until NYC got involved) lots of nice people to work with. Professional white collar environment.

    Cons

    Senior management. Promotions are based on cronyism rather than merit. Once you become a VP they will never get rid of you. Too many VP's that do not produce drag down profits. Middle management is generally abused in order to get the work done rather than have VP's pull their weight. Sr management does nothing to change that culture as they are more worried about getting sued and protecting their own high paying jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the do-nothing VP's, cut your own salaries. Cannot justify a company going from a billion to 200 million in revenues and keeping SR management salaries the same and jettisoning the people that actually produce the work.
