    Advice to Management

    HNTB Federal is a failing business. Base4D does not work so don't buy into it. Don't show clients software functionality that will not work when implemented at their site. Cancel projects that are failing. HNTB has no business in the software development industry.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    HNTB provides above market compensation and opportunity to grow in a positive marketplace, but in an economic downturn employment decisions are based on the bottom line.

    Cons

    Employment decisions are based on time on job and economic drivers to the bottom line, not necessarily what is best for the future of the organization.
