    I have been working at The Haskell Company as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I've interned with several other large commercial construction companies, but none valued their interns as much as Haskell has. I've learned a lot while interning with Haskell and even had the opportunity to go out on the company yacht several times!

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent job, keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at The Haskell Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great projects with ample budgets.
    Big on training/continuing education experiences.
    Very supportive of local community.
    Above average salary.

    Cons

    Construction is very much the favorite child - their bonuses reflect that vs. paltry bonuses for design staff.
    Management social interaction seems "forced."
    Because they are large, you can get pigeonhole d into a particular role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up and really get to know the people that work for you.

    Former Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Jacksonville, FL
    Former Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at The Haskell Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Synergy of project teams, the ability to work hand in hand with construction side of Design-Build for all types of clients, quick design-construction turn around so the amount of experience you get is 3 times that of design only firms. You get rewarded for doing a good job.

    Cons

    Hard to attract talented architects into design build because of old stereotypes of design-build. Rollout of cutting edge technology was not well thought out by leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking for those who want more responsibility and give it to them - title and pay.
    Utilize A-E leadership to win Healthcare jobs leaving the construction folks at office until client asks for them. If you don't have that AE leadership, higher them, or stop chasing these projects.

    Pros

    Very collaborative work environment, management is transparent and cares. Company is responsive to outside environment and making good changes. Working hard to grow the business. Pay is good to excellent. Recent decision to add everyone to the bonus plan was great. Nice work environment.

    Cons

    Still not good at employee reviews. Not always sure where you stand. Some old-timers resist change. Still need to work harder balancin design and construction but getting much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aggressive pushing change and promoting younger people.

    Former Employee - Architect in Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at The Haskell Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not micro-managed, ability to work on your own. Pace was usually moderate, sometimes rushed to meet deadlines. Great benefits package. Good location and office atmosphere.

    Cons

    Communication was lacking within and between departments. Obvious bias in compensation and benefits going to the construction side of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office and get to know your people, but don't do it just out of obligation - we can tell when you're just "making the rounds" to put in an appearance.
    Prompt your teams to meet and communicate more frequently.
