    I worked at Hill International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the workstations are nice, dual monitors.

    Cons

    no employee development, no career path. Management is the typical baby boomer generation where they know very little and pretend to do so much. Management scolds employees for not having projects to work on, don't let employees bid or propose on new work, and then don't offer any other work - very disheartening

    Advice to Management

    get a grip on reality, stop gossiping all day, and provide some direction or even maybe get some work accomplished

    I worked at Hill International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent reputation in the industry. When someone asks you who you work for, and you reply with "Hill International", they know and respect the company you work for.

    They are excellent at putting together strong proposals and winning contracts so you can get busy on your clients' projects and being successful.

    Cons

    HR staff was sometimes slow responding to employee administrative needs.

    Advice to Management

    After winning the contract - be sure you continue to seek feedback from the clients and feed that back to your project staff so they can make improvements, learn and grown.

    Pros

    All the room in the world for growth and reaching career goals. Offers experience on some of the world largest projects. Educational growth offered and encouraged. Average salary for the industry.

    Cons

    It's hard to get to know management personal and other employees do the book of business being so large but offers opportunities to meet new people in new places if your willing to go where the work is?

    Advice to Management

    Put money back into the people who make you money. Maybe try some company retreats to bring employees from different regions together in order to create a team feel. Management should make a point to visit and get to know the people that are the day to day face of Hill. Bring back the bonuses.

    Pros

    Company had great people to work with.

    Cons

    Most of the good/well payed personal got let go. Upper management only looks at the cost cutting not performance or need. People that are still there are overworked and under payed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to employees, and them know what is the plan for the future so that they can plan for the future.

    I worked at Hill International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great growth opportunities from within. I took advantage of opportunities and was also given the room to create my own. The experience I gained at Hill has truly impacted my career in a positive manner and has opened up new doors for me.

    Cons

    When management is changing there were no clear processes in place and chaos ensued. Also, too much nepotism was going on when I was employed there. I've heard that most recently the company was sold and as a result massive layoffs are going on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your top talent and by that I don't necessarily mean your billable top performers. The admin departments had some truly great people that you let go of. Shame.

    Pros

    Staff are very friendly and projects are top notch.

    Cons

    Company going through management changes. Possibly on brink of being sold to increase stock price. Layoffs is ongoing and at high risk of being laid off if not 90% billable. Benefits continuously decreasing. Could continue for another year!

    Advice to Management

    Retain talented staff and come up with solutions that take care of your employees that make this company successful.
