    Pay
    Benefits
    Work/Life Ballance

    Pros

    Great staff. Salary is competitive. Paid overtime is fantastic.

    Cons

    Typically not supportive or understanding of the urban planning profession given that HNTB is an engineering firm first and foremost. Hard to attract visibility to your work within the company. High thresholds for contract amounts make it difficult to do planning work unless under a larger engineering contract.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the planning sector of the business. Provide institutional support and recognition to this sector of your business.

    I worked at HNTB full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. High $$. I had to think about 20 words to thing about Pros but that is all I came up with.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Over exaggerated job position at interview. Was told a team environment was in place but found out there was no cohesion among the team and everyone was on their own. Office staff was a cut throat environment.

    Advice to Management

    Give the proper training for those that start out. Don't favor employees over others. Stop telling employees you are too busy to help them when they are in the next office having 1-2 hour personal conversations.
