    I have been working at HNTB full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very talented and highly educated engineers who can accomplish a myriad of projects. The company has great opportunities for designing and working on complex transportation projects. Salary and benefits are well above average.

    Cons

    No real direction from upper management. Ventured in the Federal market and then exited just as quickly while leaving a bad taste in clients' mouths and leaving bodies by the side of the road. Currently, the tunnel practice appears to be going down the same road. Design/build practice started off very strong and is now not meeting expectations.

    TImesheets are tracked daily. The main concern of management is meeting the various matrices such as TOJ or Sales Goals with really no concern for the client. HNTB used to promote meeting client's expectations, on-time and under budget.

    Officers are mostly hired from the outside. The only way that I or those who work around or for me to become an officer would be to leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a change. Managing timesheets is not management. Put people in charge who understand and empathize with the employees. Follow the advise from the old commercial, get plane tickets and send all the division leaders and the officers around them to meet with their clients and see what is going on.
