    I have been working at HDR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Unlimited coffee.

    Cons

    Infrastructure company with typical low salaries and poor management. Mediocre benefits package, laughable 401k, and wasteful spending.

    Hurricane Irma put many Florida workers out of work for a few days. Instead of showing compassion for the <200 employees we were told to take PTO, go negative on PTO, or take unpaid leave. A company this size (10,000 employees) should be able to spare a few days of PTO for 200 employees. Instead, they choose to punish those who saved PTO for vacation while asking for PTO donations from other offices. Either way, HDR will get their money. They don't care about you.

    Advice to Management

    Show more compassion to your employees.

    None to report so far
