    Pros

    Challenging work, variety of projects, benefits

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give better training to your leaders so that they can actually lead properly.

    Pros

    Nobody 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.

    Cons

    Nobody 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 ManagementAdvice

    Current management of my division is hopeless in my opinion. It's a fraternity of clueless people.

    Pros

    Benefits 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.

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

    With 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.
