I worked at HNTB full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Working at HNTB can be a great learning experience for a young engineer. There are engineers with great experience to learn from. A well established leader in civil projects with an impressive portfolio of projects.

Cons

The company seems to have structural problems. It appears to have become a collection of independent companies broken down by geographic and individual office locations. Each competing with each other over projects, resources and profits.

Advice to Management

Flatten the organization to put the right resources on the project no matter where their location is rather than reinvent for each project in each office. Mentorship used to be a way of building technical expertise at HNTB. There's no time for that now given their burdensome Time-On-Job goals which rule the organization.

    Pros

    Well established, well respected in the business, competent and friendly employees, good compensations, the company adopts innovations in design and project management, you can skip stairs easily if you show your talent.

    Cons

    Bad strategic planning and risk managements, opened multiple offices in some states then struggled and quickly closed them which resulted in lots of layoffs, hard to climb up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    The suites are living in a different world focusing on growing the business only not the employees.
