    Just another number getting opressed from above

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - QA/QC Manager  in  Aberdeen, MD
    Current Employee - QA/QC Manager in Aberdeen, MD

    Pros

    salary was fair and benefits good with profit sharing

    Cons

    In my opinion I was blocked from a lateral move because they wouldn't release me. Just another number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of human resources and be recept of suggestions for improvement. Just because you are the top management and make a top salary doesn't mean the company is sustainable. You could be next.

    Very poor management

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Vice President  in  Washington, DC
    Current Employee - Vice President in Washington, DC

    Pros

    Salary is ok but there is nothing to do. A strange environment and to see those who survive do it by holding information and sharing very little.

    Cons

    No future. There needs to be something done quickly. Too many good resources simply are not engaged with. There is a terrible level of apathy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with your staff. Recommend 360's done on the SVPs by neutral / external firms/ websites.

    Current Employee - Senior QA/QC Manager  in  Baghdad (Iraq)
    Current Employee - Senior QA/QC Manager in Baghdad (Iraq)

    Pros

    Hill is provide equal opportunity to all employee, high level of standards and gives opportunity to improve through Hill University and other training programs with reputed training institute (i.e. CMAA) full course.
    Hill`s management provide the client with high quality products and deliver the projects within budget cost and time specified.

    Cons

    The work environment is very good, you can feel that management and the staff are on family. Hill's as others international reputed companies has their own policies and procedure which all should adhere and comply with. I highly recommend Hill International as one of the reputed and respected International company, and I'm willing to work with Hill in anywhere in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hill management are well consider costumer satisfaction are top priority and deliver project with cost, quality and time frame specified by the client is the most important to Hill's project managers.
    I highly recommended Hill to all employers and employees.

    Pros

    There are some decent people in the company. Not many though.
    Written company values are good and emailed to the employees.

    Cons

    Most management is corrupted.
    No possibility of career development.
    Tense work environment. Not enjoyable.
    Friends and family are the ones getting senior positions with huge salaries. Irrelevant if they are qualified or not.
    Written company values are good but not happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just read the "Cons" above. There is a lot to do.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Muscat (Oman)

    Pros

    You can bring food to your home every month. Pays the bills.

    Cons

    Dishonest politics are rampant in this company.
    Senior Managers hiring non-qualified family members and friends to be placed in key management positions.
    Irrelevant how much you work and how good you are, unless you play dishonest politics you won't have any chance.
    Salaries very low and almost no benefits; unlike any other company in the industry.
    Hiring cheap staff, lesser qualified is the company's strategy. In some cases for PM and similar management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully renew/clean the senior management structure
    Recognition and respect for some of the still remaining valuable employees capable to take over higher responsibilities

    Pros

    Most everyone I have worked with outside of senior management has been accommodating, supportive and professional.

    Cons

    Marlton leadership is very poor, there is no real co-ordination of efforts, resources and challenges except for sales meetings. There are actual efforts to sabotage other offices. Great resources are being poorly utilized.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If you are related to management or buddys with HR/Admin in HQ you can be assured a solid career piggybacking on the coat tails of those who do actually work.
    The only department that has proper management is the Claims side of Hill who are professional & progressive.

    Cons

    Authoritarian Leadership
    Blame Culture
    No career progression in PMCM
    No link to annual review & performance
    No teamwork
    Gungho hire & fire culture
    Shoot first, ask questions later
    Highly incapable HR function.

    Pros

    You won't lose your job if you know what you are doing at work.

    Cons

    bad work-life balance, working 6 days a week with not really qualified people as the pay package is not good to attract qualified ones; very little benefit compare to other companies. Worst HR service I'd ever experienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR department needs a complete change.
