    Flexible work schedule, work from home, expertise in business; 401k, health plan, fun events, training classes, parking, vacation, average pay

    Cons

    Inner city, managers inconsistent, high turnover, fear of layoffs. Workloads heavy, Rush work the norm, coworkers work OT daily and burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are overworked, stressed and fearful. Managers should keep in touch with daily pressures and offer rewards, praise.

    I worked at Hibbert Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, work from home a few days a week. Good people to work with. Guaranteed full employment if your last name is Moonan.

    Cons

    Absolutely no job security, thanks to inept management. A classic case of a family business handed down to a second generation who has no idea of how to run a business. Endless meetings and stacks of useless paperwork. The most inept people get promoted to management based on them being in the same Mummer band. IT management has no clue how to treat people and no instincts about the direction that technology is going. Outdated equipment, newer technologies underused, and upgrade decisions made by people with no technical background. Nepotism runs rampant, with several family members on the payroll.

    Advice to Management

    It is useless to offer advice to management, as they don't listen during to various town halls, communications meetings, staff meetings, etc., but here goes anyway: Before laying someone off, find out what they actually do, not just what their salary is. Pay to train people properly in their jobs, including outside classes, not just internal cross training. Sales only tool seems to be, "We can do it cheaper," even when we can't. You are so understaffed that every job becomes a rush, any that is the leading cause of your error increases recently.

    I have been working at Hibbert Group full-time

    Pros

    The checks still clear. Plenty of parking spaces. Can be used as decent work experience, especially on what not to do.

    Cons

    Managers that can't manage, directors that can't direct, sales people that can't sell, account planners that can't plan, programmers that cant program, accountants that can't count, and production that can't produce.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of employees that know their job and can actually work, while keeping incompetent people just because you're friends with them, and dumping more work on the competent employees that are left. Hire sales people with actual sales experience. Enough with the pointless meetings that waste everyone's time.

    Pros

    Great place to work only for a job, not for a career.

    Cons

    Not really concerned about hiring the best talent. Only concerned about hiring people that fit into their culture. Not open to new technological ideas unless they like you. Hard pressed to find diversity in management. no opportunities for advancement. People stay there forever. The Trenton location needs a lot of work cosmetically outside and inside the building. The culture is very resistant to change and if they don't like you they will try their best to label you with things that aren't true. Ex: Needs soft skills improvement, not a team player. Not a stable place to work. Layoffs at least twice a year. Someone has to retire or leave the company in order to get promoted. The work is not challenging. People have a lot of time to micromanage and psychoanalyze other people and no work gets done. Majority of work is done by a few people who never get credit and carry the rest of the team. People work hard but not smart. Working 50-60 hours a week and not getting anything accomplished instead of working 40/week and getting things done. I used to see people come in and talk to the manager for at least an hour before they did any work. No accountability for those who continue to slack and get paid to slack even more. The slackers continue to reject the people that work hard and management allows it to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas. You can't always do things the same way and expect different results. It's insanity. Don't be threatened if someone brings new an innovative ideas to the company that you know nothing about. It doesn't mean that they're trying to take your job. Promote diversity in management. Realize the not everyone is going to agree with you on every decision that you make. Try promoting unity in your teams instead of playing one co-worker against another.

    Pros

    The company is going through some growing pains right now. I believe upper management will guide us into the light!!!! The people drive the machine.

    Cons

    Need better training of new employees to handle the fast pace environment, because you only get out of people what you put into people.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a younger upper management staff, to create a shift for fresher ideas and culture change.

    Pros

    Deep down the owners care for employees

    Cons

    As stated in several reviews senior management is terrified of the CEO. Perhaps he means well but his methods are unprofessional. He should take a look in the mirror and ask himself; would his behaviors be tolerated in a company his family did not own. If he worked at Boeing as a vp of whatever and treated his subordinates the way he treats those that work for him would he still have a job? I think not.

    Advice to Management

    The common issue appears to be communication, always has been and most likely always will be. Get rid of the dead weight that surrounds you, they'll survive you owe them nothing, they have taken advantage of you for far too long. They aren't your friends. Bring in fresh forward thinking management that can provide new, bold ideas. Good luck.
