    401K matching could be a little bit better, but they offer the Employee Owned Stock Plan to make up for it. Other than this, none so far

    Pros

    HNTB is really driven to make waves in the DC area. Pretty good pay and challenging work.

    The company keeps talking about growth but the more you consider it, the business infrastructure may not be keeping up with the explosive Mid-Atlantic and especially DC growth.

    I worked at HNTB (More than a year)

    Pros

    People were generally nice, benefits were okay.

    Cons

    This is an old company, and they don't like to pay for things. I often went to trainings necessary for my job that I had to go to on my own time as they hated when you did anything that wasn't project related. They're very stingy.

    My group in particular wasn't great to work for. Training was non-existent and my young boss had the attitude of 'if I had to figure all this out for myself than you should too.' When I asked questions I often got vague answers and was then told things I did were wrong even though no one could originally tell me how they should be done.

    You can only get ahead if you kiss up, and favoritism is rampant. I asked multiple times for help getting where I wanted to go in the company and my boss was never really willing to help me because it wouldn't benefit her. Others who went out drinking with her were often the ones promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your business group and restructure things. Actually value your employees beyond how much they can spend on project work.
