    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hatch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good pay - Good workplace - Equal opportunity to most nationalities - Good if you are higher up in the organization - CEO has a great vision for the company

    Cons

    - Organization is not their forte; everything is a mess - HR people have no idea what they are doing (and everyone in engineering knows that) - They don't invest in training of new staff - Making too many people redundant at the same time

    Advice to Management

    - Try to understand what your employees are going through - It's hard to do a job without proper training

    I worked at Hatch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hatch had good people working for them and had lots of experience before the mining downturn.

    Cons

    Hatch is a typical consultant. Don't be fooled by the privately traded company it just makes it more lucrative for the associates. When times get tough hatch make sure they can squeeze every dollar from their clients. They did nothing to remain competitive and ensured that management kept their jobs. I worked with alot of good people at hatch but they were all retrenched.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to get rid of people. Tell them. If you don't care about how the business is going and care more about the share price of your portfolios then you are forgetting about the very people that earn the company the money.

    I worked at Hatch full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture and helpful project team members looking to develop young engineers. Great focus on training and attaining Chartered Professional Engineering status.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to move around the world through other Hatch offices. Also, the focus for graduate engineers is on projects rather than introduction of different areas of engineering.

    Graduate Engineer in Wollongong

    I have been working at Hatch

    Pros

    Good range of projects graduates can work on. Supports professional development in becoming an Australian charter engineer. Large global company with solid performances over the years. Opportunities to work overseas. Good global project management systems in place.

    Cons

    Remote Locations of work and limited opportunities for promotion. Renumeration is slightly below industry average. Not a fun place to work at. Corporate culture in Australia lacks vibrance. Most people tend to be boring to work with. Due to its heavy focus in the traditional iron & steel business sector, its performance is dependent on the mining industry. Knowledge management system in place is sub-standard comparing with some other engineering companies. Low public exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, improve knowledge sharing, and try harder to diversify its scope to more fields in Australia (eg. Energy). More investments into staff's career development (eg. greater allowances for its education support scheme).
