    I worked at Holthouse Carlin & Van Trigt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This review is based on HCVT Fort Worth office. Great company to work for if you are working for the offices located in California. HCVT pays overtime and the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    To enhance your career in Texas office you have to be a favorite of a manager or a partner. No matter how hard you work, your work will not be appreciated if you are not in a good relationship with a manager or up. There is no 401k match, health benefit is average.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be fair with everyone. Just because someone is good at talking does not mean that person is good at his/her work.
