    Pros

    HNTB is fairly close to my home. Parking is pretty good for a company located near downtown KC.
    Oh and the receptionist is very nice.

    Cons

    HNTB is the least diverse employer I have ever had the honor of working for. From Harvey to three levels below him... all employees are elderly white guys. This is not an exaggeration, this is not hyperbole... There is a cast iron ceiling at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Either evolve to reflect the American population or PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF HNTB'S FUTURE... RETIRE! There is great talent that you look down upon, explore elevating some of this talent to look across from you... or go the way of the dinosaurs.

    Pros

    Multiple opportunities for training.
    Teamwork and chemistry are essential for this company, therefore its a group decision in the interview process.
    Skills learned here often lead to bigger paychecks at your next job

    Cons

    The department is largely dependent on outside politics.
    Salary is sometimes lower than similar positions elsewhere (though they are flexible some situations)

    Advice to Management

    Be more vocal as far as long term goals.
    Be more proactive as far as finding projects.
    Try to insulate the group from outside politics (though this is probably impossible)
