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

    Pros

    The people and interesting projects. Was a top reputation organization, benefits were good. Able to travel around the world and meet great people.

    Cons

    Back stabbing board and Sr management that said how much they want to help the company, them fired staff, then hired their Jacobs friends to line their pockets. Interim CEO and President are incompetent and gutless. Has staff do the dirty work then fires them. Special place in hell for people like them. Hire relatives and close friends then protects these people over the right business decisions. Ruined the company. Don't pay their bills, but travel first class for 2 hour flights.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company after you take all the cash, the get out. Let those few good people left try to fix the mess you made.

    Pros

    One of the best PM firms in the world. Great people, exciting projects and challenging assignments.

    Cons

    Lots of turmoil at the board and management level. Family who built the company pushed out by activists. New CEO is an accountant and cost-cutter, lacks leadership ability. Not respected by anyone inside the company. Company probably getting sold soon.

    Advice to Management

    Cost-cutting is not a strategy. Where's the vision?
