    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Phila, PA

    I worked at Hill International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    high level projects, good experience building

    Cons

    Employment structure is weird, similar to a temp agency that staffs new hires on a particular project. Once the project is complete, employees do not have the chance to join other projects and get laid off.

    Advice to Management

    utilize existing employees for future company projects and not utilize the method of hire and fire

    I have been working at Hill International

    Pros

    There are no pros at this time.

    Cons

    The good ol' boy club still reigns. Different people playing the same games. Incompetent managers whom have no business being such and getting overpaid for the work the other staff does. Biased against age and gender are overlooked at all levels in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    If the company ever gets back on the stock market, sell and move one. No one, from the board down, has any clue on how to run a successful business.
