    Frustratingly good

    Pros

    Great benefits, interesting projects, decent respect and development of younger employees. The 401k and company stock are huge perks and the work life balance is okay most of the time. As a younger employee, there are good opportunities to get involved and grow your skills as long as you seek them out.

    Cons

    HDR's a big company and it shows. The organization is difficult to understand, it's a huge process to get anything done or make any changes, and it can feel like it's frustratingly impossible to make a difference. Also is very easy to feel like just a number to upper management, regardless of relationships with immediate coworkers and supervisors.

    Pros

    Good work life balance as well as benefits. Large project available to work on as well as availability to work on projects all over the country.

    Cons

    The usual corporate structure found in every big company and the bottom line is they are more concerned with making money than the employees.

    After 10 years in the firm

    Pros

    Company has stock that can be invested once a year. Work / life balance is pretty good

    Cons

    Too political - the firm is becoming too corporate. Some of the older project managers need more training and do not understand how to run a project successfully - especially when it comes to understanding the limitations of how employee abilities and new software impacts their project. They simply expect younger employees to do the work even if they are not good with the software. Benefits and pay can be better.
