    I worked at Huitt-Zollars full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management and coworkers are very nice and knowledgeable. Pays well along with full benefits from the first day.

    Cons

    Training style is learn as you go and somewhat of a throw in the lions den style. Everyone is more than willing to help but sometimes its tough when everyone has so much work to do.
    Not really much of a con but some weekends are worked. It was more choice and overtime is paid. Seems like overtime is a common thing in this industry.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training towards common practice in the industry. Give more feedback towards performance.

    -Absolutely no culture
    -Benefits are lacking and do not have 401K- they have ESOP that is only used for tax purposes for CEO

    Pros

    Excellent company with great benefits. HZ prides itself on quality engineering and architectural work and has some great engineers and architects to lead our efforts. Cannot go wrong by joining this team. There is room for growth and we operate in 19 different locations in 8 different states.

    Cons

    We could probably work more diligently to keep up with some technological advances.

    Advice to Management

    Keep mentoring our new hires well so that they are ready for that next step in their career!
