    I worked at HOCHTIEF full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Centrally located in Essen, just a few minutes walk from the main station and next to a nice park and theater. Nothing else.

    Cons

    Hochtief was a very good company but since the takeover by the Spanish company ACS it has been driven into the ground. The result is - in the Infrastructure division at least - most of the decent people have moved on, and the few that are left are governed by grossly incompetent upper management with a blame culture like I have never witnessed before. They lie through their back teeth to cover their backsides, treat people like idiots and never listen to what anyone has to say. My advise is to steer well clear.

    Advice to Management

    Leave.

    Pros

    Employees were user friendly type from my point of view.
    As they teach what we ask like doubts,clarification with there busy schedule till we get that.so its good to me.

    Cons

    Sometimes two or three days work should be completed within a day ends.Continuing the work without any sleep till the task completion with error free work is a massive challenging work for me in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Start some saving account for employees apart from salaried account in order to save some.
    I had faced some difficulties to explore myself in this company
