    Pros

    People seem to like saying the work for Ross Perot Jr. Nice office with decent amenities.

    Cons

    Low pay well below market. No work life balance, and they pay for your cell phone because you are expected to be available 24/7. Face time required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better salaries

    I worked at Hillwood full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very competitive pay, countless incentives, (cash/non-cash) generally good people. The parent company, Hillwood is amazing. They are a helpful and caring bunch, and do a lot to make sure you are compensated for your hard work...But not at the Airport/ATX.

    Cons

    At first I just thought it was a joke, but I really think the Airport stays ridiculously understaffed on purpose. They have the highest turnover of any of the business units, and there's a good reason for it. Not everyone wants to work 50+ hours a week, have a completely arbitrary schedule, and frowned upon when you try to leave after a 13 hour day... Airport management structure is about as corrupt as could be. It's a very "good ole boys" club, and you're either in that group, or out of it. If you are considering a job at the airport, be sure to ask about their turnover! (9 people in 6th months, none of which were terminated. Not just front line employees, this was all levels of the department.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting the riffraff and driving off your hardest working employees.

    I have been working at Hillwood

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair compensation, smart employees, very professional, lots of nice perks, well respected in community, very entrepreneurial, high quality projects

    Cons

    Executives need to clearly articulate vision and strategy, compensation programs need to be more cleary defined and communicated, divisions need to work more closely and in harmony

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hillwood is a really good company, please define and articulate the vision and I promise the team will follow, there is a big gap from good to great.
