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

    Free cold beer is readily available because they bribe you with it. You better be ready to keep up cause they won't stop.

    Cons

    Too many hours and they have a tendency to turn you into a drunk or your not cool. I got two DUI's already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to incorporate a balance between work life and home life. The higher ups need to relax on their profit desires and spread the wealth.
