    I have been working at Hyder Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall a good experience. There are many things to be learned and it is good working on international projects. Bosses are kind and easy to talk to. Good benefits (with HMO), sufficient vacation leaves, HR process, and no trouble on labor law.

    Cons

    Tasks can be monotonous especially on bigger projects with many revisions. There are deadlines which requires much overtime but there are also times where there are too much downtime (no tasks). I think that can be balanced out with the overtime.

    Promotion is slow and compensation is below average to average and not that competitive. Some local and international companies in the country offer up to twice the salary.

    Annual increase is very low and not based on the Performance Review. Salary increase with regards to promotion is average to below average. Performance Review is done after the annual salary increase which should be the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    More effort on time management, work load assignments, and competitive salaries not only for new hires but also for current employees. Performance reviews should be done before annual salary increase to reflect the employee's performance evaluation and not just to have formality.

    Low pay grade for a multinational company. Has less projects for super structures(high rise buildings). Does not under take research advancements. Repetitive work. Project spans for years.

    Pros

    I love being busy and there was always loads to do. You are not micro-managed and I really appreciated that and loved having responsibility. All the contact with the leaders in the different areas of the business meant that I was recognised and felt involved.

    Cons

    No comment as of now

    Pros

    Having worked at Hyder for 8 years, I can say that I have thoroughly enjoyed my time her, my career has gone from strength to strenght and I have been given the chance to work on some really high profile projects.

    Cons

    Salary reviews are not really competitive enough from what I gather (job satisfaction oveall out weighs this for me though)
    There is a great cross team working environment at Hyder alrthough the Admin team are sometimes not very helpful, a lot of the time I find easier to do things myself rather than relying on them, which can eat into project/personal time...

    Advice to Management

    Improve admin/facilities team ethos (moral seems low!) within the office evironment this would make life a little more pleasent... Communication from senior management down is good at the moment, hopefully it will stay this way... a more competitive look at salaries might help with staff retention. The asthetic improvements to our office environments were very welcome and are often commented on when people come for meetings etc. (internal and external)
