    Pros

    Good benefits (Healthcare, 401K plan) and good diversity of work. For those that like to travel, many jobs are all over the country and the opportunity to see interesesting places while working is there.

    Cons

    The biggest short coming of this company, in my opinion is it's lack of loyalty to the employee. Also there was very little training offered over the years I was employed by the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees because at the end of the day the employees are the ones that built the company. The reputation of the company has declined, I hear it on the streets.

    Pros

    Strong push for client focus
    Many high performers working together for a common goal
    Strong push for additional sales

    Cons

    May be difficult to distinguish yourself
    Company seems to be trying to find its way in the Design-Build realm. Can't decide if it wants to be on the owner side, or the contractor side and keeps spending money trying to figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for employees.
    Keep people in the know.

    Pros

    Some of the people who work there are wonderful, smart people.

    Cons

    There was no room for personal growth, no room for growth or promotions. The work-life balance doesn't exist.

    Pros

    I've been at HNTB for 14 years and I would not want to be working anywhere else. Do we have our challenges? Absolutely, but what company doesn't. We have a new CEO who cares and is moving our "my" company in the right direction. Our employees work hard to meet out client's needs and we deliver...that is our differentiator. I would put us up against any of our competitors.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about, I am empowered to make things happen and I enjoy thoroughly what I do for this firm.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing and investing in our people for they are a critical asset to the firm.

    Pros

    Having been around for about 5 years, I have seen this office working well and the downturn over the past years. Now I see our office transforming to a strong architecture practice, especially in aviation, sports and transit. I am also enjoying our design collaboration with our engineers on infrastructure projects.

    Cons

    They will work you hard and engineering management style can be heavy handed.

    Advice to Management

    The engineering senior management should understand that architecture does not always fit into the engineering mold. They should be open to how architecture practice works and adjust.

    Pros

    HNTB pays very well and is pro-active in pursuing large projects. They are usually very accommodating to special family circumstances.

    Cons

    Local offices are not allowed to pursue smaller projects even when core clients ask them to. By July the budgets for office parties or activities is gone and there is an incredible push on local management to have everyone working on a project, or staying home. By January 1 everything is good again, until the next July.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take all of the profits and pay it in huge salaries to upper management, instead of keeping the worker bees busy and employed.

    Pros

    Managers alllow me to do my job with limited supervision. I work with lots of employees who have been with the company 20 plus years and would never think of working anywhere else.

    Cons

    You are expected to work hard which sometimes means long hours, but most of our employees are paid overtime even if they are exempt status so it totally makes it worth the effort.

    Pros

    The Convention Center practice is really thriving! Lots and lots of project wins in that market sector during the past few years and we're well positioned to continue that trend. The exciting part is that our expertise continues to be inflated.

    Cons

    HNTB should investigate hiring some companies owned by current employees to supplement our in house marketing/graphics group. Clients will flock to HNTB if we have cooler graphics and we'll reward our friends/co-workers while improving office morale at the same time. Win-Win-Win!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, you're doing great!

    Upper management does not provide a full understanding on how well the company is performing frequently enough.
