    I have been working at Morrison Hershfield part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Very diverse range of architectural work. You will learn a lot about materials, methods, sequencing. Knowledgeable and friendly group of people.

    Cons

    Too much report-writing. Ratio of pay to stress is lower than is desirable. Approach to projects is often very piece-meal, where building science should be done using an integrated approach. Office environment is often noisy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting your employees to work for free.

      I have been working at Morrison Hershfield full-time

      Pros

      Company is large enough and has enough history that many processes are in place to assist employees. Company has a large knowledge base and experienced personnel to assist each other.

      Cons

      While the established processes can often be helpful, they are sometimes overly regimented and could be more flexible.

      Advice to Management

      Maintain relationships with established clients, as that is the best type of business development.

        I have been working at Morrison Hershfield for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Hard working, intelligent engineers who take pride in their work and excel in mentoring engineers and managers at all stages of their career. The management staff which I have worked with have taken pride in helping young engineers grow while maintaining a high standard of excellence for deliverables and client relationships. For the 5 years I have been at MH, I have enjoied coming to work.

        Cons

        With any large company there are some inefficiencies that can be burdensome. But these are not unique to MH.

        Advice to Management

        In general, keep up the good work. I'm thankful to have leaders I can rally behind.
