    I have been working at Hardesty and Hanover full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff
    Good work life balance
    Work can be interesting/meaningful if you put in effort
    Good salaries - yearly cost of living raises at the least
    Professional development
    Good HR w/ good health care for a medium company

    Cons

    Medium sized company and limited profit margins from government work, so bonuses and perks are small
    Niche of moveable bridges is small, and other work is less interesting
    Not much room at the top
    Support roles underutilized- so engineers do more than just engineering

    Like most companies, there were good and bad things.

    I worked at Hardesty and Hanover

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, Professional development.

    Cons

    No employee loyalty, more about the bottom line. People seemed to be promoted too quickly. To the point where there was too much middle management and not enough work.

    I have been working at Hardesty and Hanover as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Happy company atmosphere. Interns are treated with respect.
    Pay is relatively higher than other engineering internships. Interns got paid for holidays too!

    Cons

    Interns will mostly be given jobs that nobody else would want to do. You will be doing CAD work using Microstation for the majority of your time. This is not too bad if you don't mind that kind of work. The pay helps out too.

    Former Employee - Intern

    I worked at Hardesty and Hanover

    Pros

    - Participating in site visits to bridges the firm had designed or was inspecting
    - Software training
    - Supervisors and PE's were very accessible and willing to help and talk
    - Flexible hours
    - Good variety in assignments due to rotation through different projects

    Cons

    - Not many chances to help with real design work
    - Lots of database upkeep and other less exciting tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow interns to be exposed to the design process a little bit. Perhaps let them attend meetings or design reviews. Offer more feedback in regards to production and quality of work.
