    I worked at Hatch Mott MacDonald full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting and engaging work - tunnels, light rail, urban planning.
    The staff is competent and professional. Most of the work is done in project offices at the client's worksite. Actual HMM offices are very small on west coast.
    Many people retire from HMM as it's a good place to work overall.
    Pay is excellent

    Cons

    Working in clients project offices can be isolating.
    Moving into management with the stock options is a carrot dangled before project managers that rarely comes to fruition.
     UK company so benefits are limited.

    Pros

    Good project team people to work with

    Cons

    Little to no training offered or guidance unless you know where and how to find it.

    Pay attention to the entire project team not just the team leads.

    Pros

    Flexible career path
    Access to people in management

    Cons

    Not much emphasis on training (despite their spiel of its importance)
    Pay is on the lower end of comparable positions in other companies
    Despite being in many industries, employees are usually bound to one in particular

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize training


  5. "Project Manager"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours for employees that perform well. Management doesn't micro-manage mid-level employees.

    Cons

    Salaries don't keep the good employees around. Only a few "preferred" employees are well-compensated, leaving others to pursue greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay scale for mid level mangers to keep them around. Not a good business model to have those employees constantly searching job boards.

    I worked at Hatch Mott MacDonald full-time

    Pros

    Good pay when including per diem.

    Cons

    Had to travel. Management was very removed from the actual work. Treated workers like numbers rather than people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on.

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer there is no career path for you. Regarding 3D hatch Mott was always reactionary as a company. There were certain managers that saw the value but that was not across the board

    Advice to Management

    Communication can always be improve. Look forward instead of be reactionary
