    Pros

    a lot of free time to do nothing, but when its time for work, its time for work

    Cons

    not much room for improvement or salary increase unless you have degree

    Advice to Management

    needs to prepare people for higher level things instead of bringing people in who are unexperienced.

    Pros

    Some of the best co-workers, everyone that works here has a very open door collaborative environment. Very much a family feel to the company.

    Cons

    Can be paperwork heavy in some areas, allow for better opportunity for advancement. but overall they reward high performers very well with loyalty and promotions, it might just take some time to get there.

    Pros

    Great team of hard-working individuals. Willingness to teach you skills 'outside-the-box'.

    Cons

    Pipeline division new in North America, still feeling it's way through establishing itself internally.

    Pros

    Coworkers and management were a great group of people to work with. There were people from all walks of life.
    Job expectations: You know exactly what to do every day. It's quite motivating.
    Outdoors: if you love hiking, this will be very appealing.

    Cons

    Advancement: there doesn't seem to be many opportunities to move up at a reasonable time frame.
    Hours: The day starts very early in the morning. If you get paid overtime, expect a good bit of it, which is fine if you like the money. You will also work weekends on occasion.

    Company is stuck in the 19th century.

    Pros

    Good starter job for a young engineer who is trying to get there feet wet.

    Cons

    During my time at Hatch Mott Macdonald in the pipelines division I felt like everything is based up on the Good Old Boy system. Project managers worked long and unnecessary hours. My take is if you are putting in 70 hrs a week then maybe you are unfit to handle the task. The project managers in south pipelines display very child like behavior and are very unprofessional. All they do in that office is chew tobacco and shoot guns. It's like the wild wild west. This place should be on Forbes Worst places to work.

    Pros

    Highly networked company with manifold revenue streams. .I liked Nick DeNichilo on a personal level but have to give thumbs down as he endorsed the culture. Sorry Nick.

    Cons

    Too many groups offering similar services. This leads to a poor environment for both employee and customer. The time and material model leads to inefficiencies. Luckily, the client base are utility companies that are notoriously managed by people severely lacking in education. This is a private company servicing a government supported industry- enough said.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate competition between groups. Got to Firm fixed contracts and clean up.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package. Great ideas, poor follow thru. Potential is there.

    Cons

    This is a grueling sweat shop with micromanaging abusive bosses. Pick apart everything you do.

    Advice to Management

    Provide real time for your employees to train up on procedures. Management needs to take interpersonal communication classes. Rule with an iron fist.
    Project Managers think billers are their personal assistants. The rudest bunch i have ever worked with.

    Pros

    Leadership is great. Supervisors do their job while spending the time to prepare you for the next step. Benefits are some of the best. Having offices all over North America and two parent companies all over the world, one could find various opportunities.

    Cons

    Promotions seem a bit slow, but little room to complain. I have been awarded some sort of a raise for the past 3-4 years now.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time visiting with staff thorughout the week. Check on progress overall, not just your specific project. Also, do your research when appraising an employee at the end of the year. Most office managers (the appraisers) do not work directly with lower level staff.
