I worked at HDR full-time

Pros

Salary on par with industry, lots of different projects to work on, descent benefits, employee owned, stock price has done well, lots of internal training.

Cons

Large company problems...focus on growth and bottom line draws management further from actual work. Tend to promote staff too soon with not enough project experience...occasionally with less experience than the group they are supervising. Not all project managers know how to manage staff. Staff development varies depending on who you work under.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to who you promote...not all are ready.

    I worked at HDR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge corporate bureaucracy. Never forget the world was created in Omaha. That is where GOD lives..

    Cons

    Do not think Career. You are fodder, and management has no problem eliminating you or anyone else at any time, no matter how ling you have been a loyal over worked employee. . And they do it in a cowards way. This is a "Right to Work" Company. This is NOT a place to plan a long life plan.

    I have been working at HDR as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - A lot of great people to work with
    - I was put on projects that were not just "busy work," I was able to get a lot of hands-on experience
    - HDR generally promotes from the inside and send their employees outward
    - Employee stock percentage raised significantly this year, expected to do so in years following as well

    Cons

    - Expanding internationally makes for some growth that not all departments or employees are equipped to handle
    - Overhead departments are not given much room in the budget
    - Many people doing one project, employees often slack off
