    I have been working at HITT Contracting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In house certified training, red bucket, and a strong emphasis on doing things the HITT way.

    Cons

    Office politics, lack of promotional oppotunities for non-operation staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for advancement would help to keep staff motivated. Also the cost of the benefits as well as the cost of living are rising so taking that into consideration during review and bonus time would be helpful.

    I worked at HITT Contracting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People are great least in the department I've worked at. Happy hours in the office on fridays.

    Cons

    Upper management are completely clueless, endless meetings with nothing ever getting done. Putting tons money to waste in resources thats not necessary. Benefits are just a slap to the face to employees, might as well not have a health insurance with the fees and copay you pay out. Benefits were constantly being cut, as profit sharing was gone the year I started.
    Upper management constantly reminds you how the company is 100 best places to work for in DC, however this company has one of the highest turnaround in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like a asset not a throw away.

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

    Pros

    Above market compensation, my boss really cares about my personal and professional growth, fun co-workers, good programming to engage me in the culture of the company (cornhole tourneys, training...), lots of advancement potential, positive environment, strong leadership

    Cons

    Work hard, play hard mentality (construction as a whole is a tough industry with lots of hours to get the work done in the field - I like this because I have advanced by working hard, but I see some others struggling on how to manage this themselves)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay positive, keep seeking ways to improve with new initiatives and technology, establish a junior leadership board to give up-and-comers the ability to influence business direction

    Pros

    Good money. Come and go as you please. They allow you to go out and get clients. Lots of afterwork happy hours.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Management can be aloof, and then suddenly show up to tell you everything you are doing work. A lot hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Year end bonuses create a hostile work environment.

    I have been working at HITT Contracting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours, lots of events and regular "meetings"

    Cons

    Homophobia, mysogny, all around bullying is everywhere. Regular work hours for the office are 7:30 to 5 but if you leave before 5:30 you feel like you're looked down on regardless.
    Middle-management basically comes and goes as they please and pass the buck on to someone below them. They go out to play golf all the time instead of staying in the office to do work, because it's "with clients" so it's okay. Not very good at leading by example. The whole company seems uptight. No real problem with upper management other than I think some of their thoughts are a little traditional, not in an offensive way, just an annoying, outdated, unnecessary way for the 21st century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a real HR department and really push harrassment and ethics classes in your continued professional training

    I have been working at HITT Contracting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    HITT has a good team atmosphere within each sector. Good people and values across the board, and growing with the upturn of the construction market.

    Cons

    Perspective is everything - you have to be willing to work and do whatever it takes to get the job done - most may see that as a con, but I view it as a positive trait that more people need to possess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thoroughly review healthcare options on the market - health benefits could be stronger.
