    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Good people, especially the craft. Young engineers learn a lot from their field experience. Very good overall training program - employees have access to a plethora of industry courses year-round through a very well designed and implemented company education portal.

    Cons

    The hours are ridiculousness. Kiss your personal and family life goodbye. Communication at HP is horrible. Though this is the construction industry, often HP gives less than a week notice when its time to uproot and move to a new job. Communication between lower and upper-level management isn't great either. Its difficult to get an honest assessment of your progress or deficiencies. HP has a terrible record of retaining and promoting minorities and women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times. I suggest offering more trainings on communication and managerial skills.

    Pros

    Company has very cool jobs to work on, you do learn alot, plus many trainings. We have strong safety program and have relatively good salary.

    Cons

    You cannot have a life or family while working here. Work between 55 to 80 hrs a week. You have no input on where you move and management does not keep there word. It is not odd for a fifteen year employee to have moved 8 or 9 different cities. All I have to say is karma's a .......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have employees that have families maybe try to help keep them together it's said that you don't care if families are broken up, seen to many times.
