I worked at HOK full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Really interesting and complex projects. They have plenty of work and have been stable for the last few years.

Cons

They can't manage their resources and have people doing the work of 2-3 people, then beat you up for your work not coming out perfect. They stress credentials and continuing education, but there's no time to do it.

Advice to Management

Plan the resources before you take on the work.

    I worked at HOK full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some unique and interesting projects if you are lucky enough to work on one of them. Design level is not what it used to be. Colleagues are friendly. International staff with varied backgrounds.

    Cons

    Layoffs are sporadic but when they happen, they appear to affect the staff who work the longer hours and those who have been their the longest.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff and implement policy that benefits the whole company, not just the upper management. Stop taking away benefits that matter to people in order to make more profits. Happy people are better for the future of the company.

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

    Pros

    The company has a stong structure for the project, employee.
    Even in a bad economy, they try to keep the employee as much as they could.

    Cons

    Team shifting is hard to happen. So, if you have bad relationship with your senior, you have to move out to another company.
