    Freedom to work with software of your choosing. As long as the final result is there they give you the freedom to make creative decisions. Flexible employer and lovely people

    I worked at Hatch Mott MacDonald full-time

    Pros

    Friendly culture, variety of projects, good opportunities to grow and learn technically. Many locations in the U.S., Canada and overseas. Inter-office transfers are possible for personal reasons or to support project needs.

    Cons

    Virtually impossible to move up to management due to the vertical management structure. HR and IT support is limited on the West Coast. Management does not represent diversity well - women and ethnic minorities frequently overlooked for promotions/management positions. Long hours. Salaries on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your team and recognize team members for their individual contributions and the overall team effort. Ensure HR has a proper understanding of state laws. Treat staff well and provide equal opportunities.

    Pros

    Location (near Liberty Bell), small office environment, family type of culture, good benefits, flexible hours, pretty good pay, ability to advance career.

    Cons

    Overworked at times and under staffed. Too many entry level staff. Because of this, overtime is strongly encouraged (and it's straight time). At times, feel as though mgmt is dissatisfied even though you've worked your hardest to please them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced staff (5-10 years)

    Expected to workbovertime without pay. Strong skew in pay for employees. Management allows more senior engineers to bully junior engineers. Unfair treatment.

    Consider employees fairly. Put more effort into quality is f working environment, employee overall well-being. Less focus on working hours and making sure employees are at wotk at certain times of day. Should be more focused on whether the workgets done.
