    Pros

    Private company with strong history

    Good work goes unnoticed. Management favorites are non performers.

    Advice to Management

    I've witnessed the bully environment that so many have spoken about. IT's REAL.

    Pros

    Really have enjoyed working at Hendrickson. Great mix of working on different projects and programs. Have had lots of opportunities to work on stretch assignments . Locations wellness team holds great events, I particularly enjoy the office olympics. Benefits and retirement seem better then most and wages are competitive. During the summer I really enjoy the AWS work schedule.

    Cons

    Work can be demanding at times, and would be nice to get more updates on the business

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with employee programs and keeping the work interesting. Focus on work life valence is important, continue things like AWS.

    I have been working at Hendrickson (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to feel like you're in high school again, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Unwelcoming atmosphere with no diversity. Outdated processes and methods. Close minded way of thinking. Poor management in most departments. No upward mobility or growth opportunities. A lot of office bullies.

    Advice to Management

    Actually consider the negative feedback you are receiving. Your responses to Glassdoor reviews and to in-person complaints show you don't understand the problems at hand and have no incentive to grow as a company. Company morale is down, take notice of this. The company is not diverse, despite a previous comment you made. Take time to listen and consider instead of taking offense, this is the time to turn it around - before everyone else leaves.

    Pros

    The company is very open to developing their employees if they want it. A lot of opportunity for stretch assignments and cross training.

    Cons

    Minimal work life balance opportunities. Salary employees are expected to be at work. Sick days aren't tracked for salary employees but if you are out more than a few times in a calendar year you are written up.
