    Great People, Terrible W/L Balance

    Pros

    Great people all of whom are key to being a reason to keep at each day. Good attitudes and work that fits your desire is always available and listened to.

    Cons

    W/L balance is quite bad by today’s standards. Long hours and weekends are expected with no additional compensation. No additional recognition offered for those who ‘go the extra mile’ Remote work flexibility is variable but generally you are required to be in the office min 3 days/week

    Good company w/ excellent benefits

    Pros

    Great 401k match and bonuses (depending on position) and healthcare. Leadership by exception. Pretty liberal and flexible policies. Most people there are high-achieving, intelligent, and eager teammates.

    Cons

    May get put into a niche role or type of work. Up to you to prevent stagnation and get more well-rounded experience by aggressively requesting movement to various project types. As with any consulting/engineering firm, sometimes your career path is dictated solely by what the clients demand.

    Great Workplace to Learn / Grow

    Apr 8, 2022 - Principal Engineer in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Among the many positives of working at Hazen and Sawyer, I really enjoy the culture. Obviously each office has its own certain flavor. But from what I have seen, the entire company has adopted the same mantra that the workplace is a positive and learning environment. There are many great mentors within the company and no one is judged for making mistakes, as long as you learn from them. The goal is to produce the best possible outcome for our clients and to encourage creativity, but never to treat employees as just a means to an end - for example asking people to work excessively long hours. Lead by example, choose your own path, and treat others as you would want to be treated.

    Cons

    I do not really have anything negative to say. It would be nice if the water/wastewater industry would pay as much as the investment banking industry - but I guess we haven't earned that since we don't work 60+ hours per week!
