    I worked at Hexagon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice building. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Keep your eyes open if you’ve been an employee for many years because your salary is most likely higher than entry level personnel they can replace you with. And especially if you’re a few years from retirement age. There’s no loyalty to employees.

    I have been working at Hexagon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Your paycheck shows up on time

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low given the amount of layoffs Hexagon (Intergraph) has every few months. They regularly look for cheap entry level grads that they can take advantage of and will lay off older (40's and 50's) workers to keep their labor costs low. There's no loyalty to the employees and as such the employees operate frightened on a weekly basis that they will be the ones laid off. The salary is low to begin with...

    Advice to Management

    Get your employees morale up by figuring out how to do business without laying people off every few months and replacing them with cheap UNA grads. Giving them pizza doesn't change their minds about how poorly you're running the company.

    I worked at Hexagon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great workers (line managers and workers). Beautiful facility that no matter how hard it tries cannot lift up the low morale. Decent benefits, although expensive by Alabama standards.

    Cons

    Senior Management Team are very dysfunctional and basically dishonest in this organization. They will lie to you about what a great job you are doing and how important to the company your contribution is while they are hiring and training your replacement in the background (unknown to you). Happens every day there. That includes Senior Management promising you raises or bonuses for your "good" work and then later pretending...

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to the current Hexagon SI Management Team. I don't think that is a fixable situation. My advise to the Hexagon AB Management Team is to clean house in Huntsville and get rid of most of the Management Team at SI.

    Pros

    Work environment, ASP. Opportunities for new hires.

    Cons

    Upper management, special treatment to specific managers, fail to learn from mistakes, poor project management. No growth opportunities, stagnant. After five years it's time to move on for better pay and growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Replace upper management: Operations, Engineering, Human Resources and Corporate Management

    Pros

    Hexagon is a company that will get you around quite a lot of interesting places while its self is also. My coworkers are some of the greatest people and very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as climbing up the ladder unless you're family / friends with someone high up already, or you get a lot of face time with the right people. But still, don't upset anyone..

    Advice to Management

    Hexagon's number one priority is to make money, but don't forget who interfaces with the customer that pays those purchase orders..
