    I worked at Hankins and Anderson Consulting Engineers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice place to work. a lot of good people and good training available. Some amazing travel opportunities can come up. The projects can be challenging (in the best ways) and you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Most of the work was government, so the bureaucratic nature of working with the government, or any large company can be tough to deal with.

    I worked at Hankins and Anderson Consulting Engineers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    H&A provided training and professional development resources as I needed them. Benefits were good. Company reputation was healthy with the right groups. Work was interesting.

    Cons

    I left hoping for more income elsewhere. I felt that I could have gone farther if I was a male. Boys club environment tended to crop up and give me the impression that females were outsiders.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees informed on the progress and plans for the company. Engage them in evolutions.

    Pros

    Seems to really care about the industry and the employee.

    Cons

    Being bought by a larger company with bad reviews. Already changing benefits to something less desirable. Not looking forward to the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little guys in the big picture of the future.

    Pros

    Great place work and people are great! Decent benefits package and flex-time. They have strong values and care about the employees.

    Cons

    Recently, the company struggles with periods of losses causing turmoil and turnover. Management is often focused on too many things leading staff to believe they could be doing more. Its easy to get lost in the shuffle and blend in. Too many people choose to work and put in their 40 and do not strive to excellence to improve the company.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid the "values" distractions and focus on what you do well. Build on your strengths. Do more to recognize those employees that do good work.

    Pros

    The complete range of engineering disciplines, technical positions and project management required for their markets and projects offers a broad community of professionals with whom you can advance your career path and sharpen your occupational skills.

    Cons

    The business model of Federal contracts (multi-client / multi-project markets) is limiting because as the Federal budget (ha ha) goes, so goes the business budget. Staffing has been up and down since 2014. Of course, they are not alone. Also, the work processes are very restricted compared to the private sector projects and firms.

    Advice to Management

    I have none, Management seemed quite happy with themselves.

    I worked at Hankins and Anderson Consulting Engineers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Leading edge in the industry. Always leading the way with the latest design software. Great benefits. Many paid holidays. Summer Hours.

    Cons

    CEO was over-ambitious and had nobody to rein him in. In 2012, EVERYBODY in the company was required to take 3 weeks furlough (time off without pay) in order to recover lost revenue. All benefits - including overtime pay - ceased. Great medical insurance turned to horrible insurance. 2nd round of layoffs and furloughs came in 2015. CEO needs to go.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get rid of the CEO before he runs the company into the ground.

    I have been working at Hankins and Anderson Consulting Engineers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve worked at multiple workplaces prior to joining H&A, and it is by far the best employer! Hankins and Anderson truly value their employees as their most valuable asset. The leadership is always open to employee feedback and willing to make improvements. There are regular meetings and discussions to provide transparency and ensure everyone is working towards the goals and objectives of the firm. There are many events that keep the workplace culture fun and enjoyable, while contributing our best to H&A.

    Cons

    Not really any cons, other than the small break area. Most people sit at their desk for lunch if they don't eat out, which leads to never truly getting the full lunch break due to interruptions. There are some negative reviews of H&A, but from my experience working at other firms H&A does a fantastic job standing out from the rest. It's likely that those with negative reviews haven't worked at enough workplaces to see the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great firms to work for, extremely flexible in understanding work-life balance. The kind of projects are the best to be involved with in the building consulting engineering profession.

    Cons

    Too much overhead associated with process, sometimes loses sight of the need to accommodate diversity between jobs and clients consulting engineering.
