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

    Pros

    They pay reasonably well if they need you. They tend to recruit good quality staff. So the 'team' usually works well.

    Cons

    They will drop you like a hot brick when not needed.
    Little in the way of company support..
     Nothing to differentiate from other consultancies.
    Like so many others you are just a number and personal development within a role is almost non existant. You tend to leave with same skill set that you started with.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just pay lip service to training. And stop with the stupid rules on leave taking it makes for a happier staff.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits and a satisfying job until the end.

    Cons

    After informing Hill that I was willing to take a pay cut in order to maintain employment at the HQ until another project came available I was denied and was sent onto unemployment. They seemed shocked and and a bit miffed when I took employment up with a different company after being placed on unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    To maintain a good staff listen to them, a good construction site inspector is not always the easiest to replace.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Easy hiring process- nobody really interested in your experience or professional path so there weren't many confounding questions. That was the first red flag.

    Cons

    Not enough work, boring environment, everyone over the age of 50. Contracts are all under DOS which runs at a snails pace. Couldn't wait to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Get some leadership/management in the office and give the estimators something productive to do.
