    Pros

    Hazen is a great company to work for. Flat management structure allows for peer-to-peer working relationships, and all of the executives/shareholders still work on active projects. The work environment is relaxed, and you are expected to act like a professional (and treated as such), so flexibility exists with which to perform your work. Hazen employs a lot of of very intelligent and experienced engineers, so resources and guidance are never hard to come by. Still a relatively small firm in relation to its peers (~1,000 employees), every person feels like they play an integral part in the company's success. Being a 100% employee-owned is another great benefit, as career trajectory can be professionally rewarding and lucrative. Salary is highly competitive, and the benefits structure is second-to-none.

    Cons

    Given the flat management structure, there may not be a clear "mentor" for young engineers and project managers. Must show initiative and drive to "figure it out" in some cases; those who do rise quickly, those who don't could be left feeling frustrated. But overall, very little to complain about!
