    I worked at HBW Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I loved the team there! The culture at HBW is very family oriented and highly team focused. Upper level management cares very much about their employees and tries to make an effort to help everyone to ensure success.

    Cons

    The only con was that I had to move due to family reasons. Otherwise, I would still be there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at HBW Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HBW is family-friendly. They are always understanding about doctor's appointments, kids' games at school, etc. The people here are generally outstanding humans - kind, thoughtful, and caring. The group of project managers here is very talented and driven - it is with pride that I say I was one of them. I don't see any pay discrepancy whatsoever when it comes to female salaries and they are motivated to hire women.... My supervisor spent a great deal of time investing in me to bring me into the culture of this company to allow me to succeed and I consider him both friend and family.

    Cons

    The "cons" were rather self-generated. I am a perfectionist and over-achiever. The work load I needed to maintain plus my own personal expectations of how I run projects and care for customers meant that I was forever feeling underwater and overwhelmed. It's hard to achieve your goals when you are an overachiever but also overwhelmed. There was significant driving time required for this position, due to running... projects the way I expected them to be run - with tons of personal face-to-face attention and I had moved to a home farther away from the office, making the driving worse then it needed to be.

    Advice to Management

    Would be delivered in person. I think it's pretty cocky to post advice online. The management here is very willing to explore other ideas and listens genuinely when you come to them.

    I worked at HBW Group

    Pros

    HBW's team approach towards management ensured that I had all the tools and support I needed to succeed. As a woman in construction, there were no barriers placed on me and the growth opportunities were boundless. Had it not been for an unplanned family relocation out of state, I would still consider myself a part of this highly productive, supportive and growing family

    Cons

    Living in Reston, the commute to Rockville was difficult at times. However, management ensured that I had projects close to home and provided flexibility in my schedule for travel between projects and office.

    I worked at HBW Group

    Pros

    Good location. Relaxed Friday office environment.

    Cons

    This is a "good old boys" organization. Growth opportunities for women is limited. The President/Owner frequently uses condescending tones, especially if offering insights that contradict his position.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a structure to foster growth. Focus on the work product, not who is working the job. Provide positive feedback, not just dwell on negative feedback.
