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.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I loved the team spirit in my technical department but the office management was totally cut of from regular employees.

    Cons

    I new college graduate I was not given the opportunity to grow and learn more. I was given only basic task.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend them to get more in touch with the employee and also to diversify the project you seek. Going after big project might be lucrative but you are putting all eggs in the same basket.
