    I have been working at Hyder Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture - friendly, inclusive, rewarding

    Cons

    Less resources available to employees in Australia than in some other regions, but really a minor concern when the company is so good at utilizing talent from around the world.

    I worked at Hyder Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Flexible in taking time off. On top of my 4 weeks vacation time, I was able to take unpaid leave for several weeks for personal reasons. Also they have a system in place where you can buy vacation time.

    Very relaxed environment, open door policy to speak to all levels of management.

    Cons

    They treat everyone the same, weather you work hard or slack off you get the same treatment and compensation. Made it difficult to move up the ladder as other people who started on same level hadn't progressed so they would not promote because it would "look" bad to the others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to get to know the strengths of each employee and reward them instead of holding them back.

    Pros

    great projects, great colleagues, opportunity for growth if you work hard for it. snr management is approachable. salary decent enough.

    Cons

    company works in silos. some legacy managers are simply furniture of the office and don't bring any added value either to Clients or training the junior staff. company HR is a joke and unprofessional. little in-house training possible unless on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have stable longer term vision, dont change as the winds blow...

    Pros

    Senior Level Engineers seems to get more exposure on Varied Projects.
    Working environment is very flexible and stress free.
    Pay is decent.

    Cons

    As an entry level engineer what you end up is only with report compiling.
    If you are ambitious this is definitely not your place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better interaction in terms of technical knowledge sharing is recommended

    Pros

    International. Great CEO with human values, made several good cultural changes. Great systems in place. Some Business directors inspires growth of his support staff and supports them through thick and thin to be successful.

    Cons

    Normal corporate ways of doing things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is always room for betterment. One way may be to motivate all employees with restricted stock options as per their roles, and see the change.
