    I worked at HAKS Engineers full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The company provides decent benefits and a salary that is mildly competitive. There are good honest people to work. Decent place to keep your head down and stay quiet and loyal.

    Cons

    . . .where to start. First, the company AND its owners have been charged with felonies -- fraud and bribery. Be very careful. If the company survives it will look nothing like it does now. There is zero room for advancement. Top spots are set aside for former employees of city and state agencies. They are paid fantastic amounts of money for their connections, but have little practical knowledge. They also have no interest...

      I worked at HAKS Engineers full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Many staff level employees want to be successful. company is starting a webinar-based training program on various topics. Good IT support.

      Cons

      Upper managers micromanage staff and try to undermine each other and staff to make themselves look good. Lack of support from management for staff. Some managers actually yell at and harass employees. Senior management allow non-performing upper managers to remain in the company at the expense of hard working staff.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to and support staff. Remove non-performing upper managers and those that harass staff and have poor people skills.

    • Good company with potential but needs to step-up

      I have been working at HAKS Engineers full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Multicultural staff, growing company, company gatherings, Friday breakfast and descent benefits. A few descent staff members.

      Cons

      Others behave like they are still in high school and management does nothing about it. Forget about going to HR about it too. Underpaid staff, no flexibility, and no room for growth. Management worry more about their own progress and not their staffs or how to preserve the morale of the company. Unrealistic expectations and then speak to you in a condescending way for not meeting them. Instead of looking for ways on how...

      Advice to Management

      Care about your employees, practice flexibility and communicate effectively. Maybe then your turnaround rates will decrease. Your site once said; "when an employee succeeds, we succeed". If you see someone with talent and is an asset, instead of displaying lack of appreciation, underpaying or overworking them, a little acknowledgment can go a long way. When a company succeeds it takes employees of all levels...it doesn't...

      Pros

      Great people, and that's about it. If it weren't for the people this position would be unbearable. That's all I got.

      Cons

      Poor top management. There is no incentive to do your job well because you will receive no raises, promotions or a simple "great job" from any of your superiors.

      Advice to Management

      Get it together.
