    I worked at Morrison Hershfield full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people at technical staff level. Great potential if senior management was replaced, almost in its entirety.

    Cons

    Top heavy organization. Short sighted management focused on profits, but don't understand that profit is a result of having the right people doing the right things. Nepotism at the top, poor business vision and poor communication with the staff. Leadership is very uninspiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major restructuring required at management level, starting with CEO.

    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.

    Pros

    MH is a challenging and dynamic workplace that tries to adhere to their core values and principles at all times. They offer the ability to work either in the office or from home as well as flexible hours. Upper Management is very approachable and courteous ... and seem to handle questions in stride.

    Cons

    The company is pretty top-heavy when it comes to management distribution ... there seems to be too man people at the VP level for a company this size.

    Pros

    great engineers and friendly staff

    Cons

    management lacks vision, severely disconnected with the staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morrison Hershfield used to be a great company to work for. Staff are generally very nice and helpful. However since around 2012, the management's focus shifted dramatically, focuses purely on profit (without much directions or vision). Many good engineers have moved on. Management for the most part is very disconnected with the staff. Too much emphasis on profit, and little on quality of work or staff moral.

    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.
