    While being employed at HMM, I am exposed to a myriad of projects relating to the water treatment aspect

    Project Engineer

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsBigger company with many resources, this includes staff with experience along with software and programs to meet the different discipline demands of many clients. The company has an interest in its employees. The company also has many locations if one likes to travel.

    ConsFor smaller jobs there is a a decent amount of internal paper work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequire less paper work for smaller jobs than for bigger jobs.

    Experience varies depending on the location

    Project Engineer (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsChallenging work, variety of projects, benefits

    ConsYou go nowhere without a champion backing you up. The official company motto is to get the right person for the project every time, regardless of division lines, but the reality is that it really depends on the leadership approach of the particular office you work in. HR is a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive better training to your leaders so that they can actually lead properly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Run!

    (Former Employee)

    ProsNobody knows or cares what you're doing unless you screw up.
    Most of the employees have little or no experience, so job security is great.

    ConsNobody knows or cares what you're doing unless you screw up, so if you're really good, you get no recognition at all unless you have your nose up someone's rear end.
    Terrible compensation. I'm paid about half what I can make at a different company.
    Managers with no clue how to manage people.
    Managers with no clue how to run a business.
    Business development with no emphasis on resource quality whatsoever. We definitely get what we pay for at HMM.
    Your work goes with you at all times.
    HR is of no use whatsoever.
    Most of the resources are amateurs at best. You cannot rely on people because they don't know what to do.
    Amateurs constantly arguing with highly experienced professionals about how you manage projects and create deliverables. The kids are emboldened by our naive leadership and don't know their place, at all.
    No mentoring unless you are a kid.
    Dead end career unless you luck out and kiss rear ends.
    Project managers with no engineering degrees, and some without college. In fact we have senior associates with no engineering degree. They have no business running engineering projects, but hey, they work hard and don't require fair compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCurrent management of my division is hopeless in my opinion. It's a fraternity of clueless people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable company

    Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsBenefits are good and they are financially stable experiencing growth every year. There are a offices throughout North America providing options for living in any part of the country.

    ConsUpper management seem to have different rules and advantages than mid to lower level staff. There are more frequent promotions in upper level staff than low to mid level staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith the company is growing each year, you should consider giving larger percentage raises to low to mid-level staff than upper management receives, who are already making so much. The same percentage for upper management is significant, but not so for lower salaried workers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
