    Pros

    Variety of work given which is good experience. Office location is nice and pay is good. Plenty of resources to compete job.

    Cons

    Upper management relies on inuput from a couple of individuals to determine how that person is performing. Ego driven individuals who don't treat some employees well.

    Advice to Management

    Do not rely on the same individuals for input regarding performance review.

    Pros

    Great benefits; they offer a lot of additional resources for health, financial management, community involvement; some great high-profile projects; really responsive HR department

    Cons

    Large company means some level of bureaucracy and impersonality; in administration it can feel like one’s needs are less important than the architects or engineers

    Advice to Management

    Accommodate those in support positions with more quiet space and fewer chances for interruption

    Pros

    I have had the pleasure of working at a few firms in the Milwaukee area, but HGA has been the best experience of them all. It is a great firm for many reasons, but the challenging project work, great work life balance and fun colleagues all play a part in the experience at HGA.

    Cons

    HGA is a large firm and doesn't have the small firm feel, but the amount of resources we have offsets this con significantly.

    I have been working at HGA Architects & Engineers full-time

    Pros

    We work on large scale projects that covers the entire spectrum of projects. I work with super smart people that all want to help progress my career.

    Cons

    Workstation spaces are getting smaller and employees are being encouraged to be paperless and mobile.

    Advice to Management

    Giveaway more HGA branded shirts, cups, etc., to the employees.

    I have been working at HGA Architects & Engineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best things about working for HGA are as follows:
    1. The people
    2. The opportunities to contribute to great design nation-wide
    3. The understanding of the need for work/life balance

    Cons

    It is a large firm and therefore some improvements take longer than preferred to implement. Excited to see this improve with access to great technology and wonderfully-minded individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in excellent staffing hires and retention! We're a great team that continues to grow and exceed previous expectations.

    I worked at HGA Architects & Engineers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    HGA is very thoughtful about all aspects of business. The leadership team is not afraid to take risks to grow the company. They have a strong mentoring program for interns and younger staff. Their offices are beautiful and represent the quality and creativity of their work. They are very supportive of the employees personal career growth and development. If you land at HGA consider yourself lucky!

    Cons

    They are relatively diverse but would be good to have more women in leadership roles. The Architects are slightly dominate over the other employees working in the interiors and engineering roles.
