I have been working at HOK full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay, fairly transparent, flexible work schedule, decent benefits, great staff, good resources (software and hardware), very good support staff, honest management.

Cons

A recent struggle to win new work, although that will change soon. Somewhat top heavy in terms of management, bureaucracy can get in the way of progress at times, but it has gotten better. Users get shifted acround quite a bit

Advice to Management

Make sure to keep enough production staff on hand so that they don't get burned out. Make project managers b more efficient.

    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.
