    I worked at Morrison Hershfield full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly nice people to work with; competitive salary and benefits; beautiful office environment near terrific mall with great places for lunch! Perks include terrific "bring a dish" employee gatherings during office hours! Job training paid for if you pass the requirements.

    Cons

    Immediate upper management too aggressive; ability to think things through seems to be difficult; no training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider selection of upper management personnel with an eye towards testing for aggressiveness, truthfulness, and ability to get along with other employees.

    Pros

    Employee-owned, great people below the management staff. Great CEO for U.S. existed when I started but, is no longer there.

    Cons

    850 people, 37 Vice Presidents. More red tape than a company a thousand times the size of Morrison Hershfield. It takes a committee to decide to send an email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ed Gazzola is no longer the CEO of the United States Headquarters and that is the biggest problem with what has happened to the company. Ed was the best and the reason I came to Morrison Hershfield.

    I have been working at Morrison Hershfield (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours, opportunity to work remotely, interesting projects to work on, comfortable working environment and attitude, offers a mentorship program to young employees

    Cons

    Lack of company wide drawing standards. Lack of internal review or document control system. Major disconnect between arch/struct/civil disciplines and mech/elec disciplines makes it difficult to deliver multi-disciplinary projects. Sub-par compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find away to get department leaders to work together and not as individuals.

    Pros

    Interesting, challenging projects. Supervisors not overbearing.Senior individuals very helpful and eager to transfer knowledge. Nice co-workers. Adequate support staff and services.. Comfortable office.

    Cons

    Project deadlines can require long hours, but that is the nature of consulting work. Salary and benefits could be better. Some compartmentalization of workload sometimes narrows exposure to different fields of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep targeting a variety of challenging projects to keep technical expertise and reputation high. Make sure salary and benefits are competitive. Keep walking the fine balance of providing adequate support to staff without over-managing.

    I have been working at Morrison Hershfield full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and 37.5 hours weekly working hours. Good start up oriantation for new employees.

    Cons

    The company does not to have a good managing team. So this company has always been a second class compnay in the industry, so are the managers of this company. They have no ambition to become technically competent. They seem to be very content to be mediocres and have no ambitions to make the company stronger. This company does not have a standarized compnay-wise quality control process to control the quality of work, so lots of work went out without proper review. Young engineers may learn very bad experiences from the poor work they have worked on. For new grads, it is not a good place to start their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove those mediocre managers who are neither technically competent nor capable of helping expand company businesses. This company neesd a deep re-contrution of all levels of management and invest to attract better people to incrase its competency.

    Challenging - not because of the work, but due to little / no support from senior management.
